krowface: xenomorph in full lotus position (Default)
Yesterday was my first orientation for enrolling. I'm about to head out for my first private one-on-one meeting with my advocate/counselor/representati... you know, I don't know what to call her*.

I am practically weeping for joy in regards to my future. This woman was once a congressman, she has worked in the Mayor's Office, and she was also once the Secretary of Education for PHL.

Knowing that I have a woman like that in my corner, I am under the honest belief that from here on in that nothing will be able to stand in my way.

Any failings from here on in are mine. And that's incredibly freeing. I am now THE person responsible for my life and my future. I am the only one responsible, and I'm the only one that gets to be the failure as well. Now I can say "nobody's fault but my own," and it feels glorious.

Anyways, here's the quote for today:

"Never confuse movement with action." - Ernest Hemingway

* I should probably find that out. I need to make sure I entitle everyone correctly in my memoirs.

Being as I'm kind of a momma's boy, I did my usual good thing and called her today.

She had absolutely no idea what I'd been up to for the past few weeks in regards to my college stuff.

She said I gave her one of the best mother's day gifts she's ever gotten, knowing that I'm making a real future for myself.
