- Journey to journals
- January 17th, 2009
I've never had a blog. I was old school. Up until last year, I still kept a journal--- the paper kind. I love writing. In fact, when I first started my very long path towards getting that much-coveted diploma, I was a communications major. But then, my impulsive behaviors when I was younger got in the way (I joined a band). Dropping out was never an option in my family. So, I went to college over and over again, trying to find that perfect fit. It finally happened when I started working with young children. All of a sudden, it made a lot of sense. I wanted to teach. When I started taking part time classes at San Antonio College, I had to hide that fact from my mom because I didn't want to hear the dreaded, "I told you so!" I heard it anyway. My mother was a high school history teacher for 15 years before she switched to elementary school. She's been telling me all along, "Why don't you become a teacher?" Of course, I was too cool to listen to my mom. I was in a band, after all.
