Day 5 – How Important You Think Education Is?

Before I get into today's question... I'm still a newbie with this blogging thing, but according to my "home page" it says I have 2 followers... But I can't see who they are!  Arggg!!!  Oh and on a more positive note, I looked at my stats yesterday, and even tho my numbers are a little low, I was super siced to see that I have folks coming in to view me daily!  Owww!!  On the map it said I even have a viewer in Germany!  That's super hot!!  THANKSSSS for coming to see me guys!  "To be loveddddd....." <--- wasn't that from Coming to America

Okay, "How Important You Think Education Is"....

I think education is very important!  If you don't go to school, IMO you are setting yourself up to fail.  My parents and grandparents *didn't* have to go to college to get a good job.  Lots of people don't want a "job"... they want a career!  Some make a career out of their job.  Most just want to get PAIDDDDD!!!  Unfortunately, that's the category I fell into.  When I had the opportunity to go to school, I didn't take advantage.  I feel as though my life would've turned out competely different if I did follow through and go to school.  During my senior year of high school, I was going through a lot of things emotionally.  I was at a school that I had fun at, had friends, but I didn't want to be there.  I wanted to graduate from the school I started out at.  I think if I was able to graduate from the school I started, I would've went to college (most of the folks I hung around then did that), but the people that I hung around at my school I graduated from, that wasn't their first priority.  So I ended up going to a community college.  I was paying for myself to go to school, so that meant I had to work!  Working to get paid to pay for school... wiggity whack!  That's what I thought... So I worked harder so I could get things.  And when I worked harder, I got a little bit more money... I thought oh, I could have all of this for ME!  So from there I stopped going to school.  In the back of my head I said I would always go back, but I just couldn't see myself paying soooo much money for it.  Now as an adult, if I want to go any further, I know I need to go back to school.  Back when I tried to go, FASFA told me I make too much money to get assistance, so I let that stop me from going back.  Now I feel like I'm at a standstill and in order for me to get over this hump (shout out to today... HUMP DAY!), I'll need to go to school.  I keep saying I'm going to do this, I'm going to do that... well, it's time to stop saying and start doing!!  Feel free to quote me on that!  Don't even get me started on my daughter's education... She's been going to school since she was 2!  LOL!  I work hard so I'm able to send her to IMO the best school!  I thank God that I'm able to send her to school on my salary!  LOL!  I want her to do well.  I want her to be THAT student.  I look at her godsister and how well she does in school and I want that for my daughter.  To me, from the outside looking in, it looks like it's nothing for her to do what she does.  She's so smart!  I'm going to need for that to rub on her little sister!  ;-)  Don't get me wrong, I think my little sweetie is really smart!  She knows too much!  LOL!  But when she goes to school, she wants to be the life of the party!  She's trying to see what you did, how was your weekend, and if you are going to come to her house later.  Every. Single. Day.  At least 2 or 3 kids come up to me asking me if they can come to my house.  I don't know what my daughter tells them, but I can only assume that she's making it seem like the place to be.  LOL!  Where was I going with this??  I think I told you before I'm random... So yeah... I want to do better!  I will be going back to school this year.  Even if it's one class!  I have to get over this hump!
