To hard work, stress and Ryan

     Okay let me preface this by saying that I have never been the best college student. Don't get me wrong, I held about a "B" average, but in my past college days I have side stepped my studies to play with friends. I figured, which is more important, showing people that I love them...or showing a professor that I can regurgitate info they have given me\

     Well since I have married my amazingly intelligent husband he has inspired me to do better. Last week was...well aweful. I had three tests all crammed right by each other. Which I should have been fine right, I mean I am not working...just watching a baby full time...HA! I think it would be easier to work full time and go to school than be a mom full time. When you are working you can come home and have uninterupted study time. When you are a mommy, the only uninterupted time you get is when you are lucky enough to lure your child into taking a nap (and then you are lucky if you get a full hour to yourself).

     Well on Saturday I had my last test of the week and I was completely burnt out. I had stayed up until 2am and gotten up at 6am for two or three days and I was just blitzed! I called my husband in tears saying that my professor was a joke and expected us to memorize things that were completely unapplicable to my life. My husband offered some encouraging words but most importantly told me that he believed that I could do it.

     Well I just got the results back from my last test and I feel I fared rather well. I got a 88%, 97% and an 99%!! Whahoo! I'll take it. I am so lucky to have such a supportive man that motivates me to exceed my expectations.

Thank you Ryan!
