I remember my first day of school like it was yesterday. I walked around in circles, getting lost, feeling so overwhelmed. After several long years of being out of school, here I am again. It took some getting used to, and for the first few months I felt lost but with time I found my place in school again and it was a good one. I made some awesome friends, connected with some cool teachers, and actually enjoyed learning.
I also feel like I did a lot of growth in those seven months. I went from a fairly shy arid unsure lady to a confident person who was not afraid to speak out. I learned some valuable lessons about life that can really apply to anything.
It seemed so far away. I worked really hard. I had long days as I went to school full time and worked full time. I never had a day to myself. Well. I finally made it. I have now graduated as a Health Care Assistant (HCA), and it was worth the wait. I am excited about what to do now with my life. I have so much more to look forward too. I have changed my life. I am starting to see what I am going to be like in the future and I love it. All I have to do is get a job.
It’s funny how just when I was really starting to feel comfy in a stable in my school environment, it was already time to start thinking about graduation. It’s crazy just how fast those seven months went by, way back on my first day I never ever thought I would be saying these words. And lastly, in order to achieve one, goal remember hardworking + determination = success.
