    Something you never thought you would/could do?

    Something you never thought you would/could do?

    Is there anything in your life that you would have never dreamed you would or could do?

    As this semester is coming to an end I'm beginning to feel extremely proud of myself because by the end of next week I will have completed my first degree. (associates). I never thought I would go to college. When I was in high school it was never even a consideration. I didn't even take the ACT. It seemed like this unrealistic and expensive venture that I wouldn't be able to accomplish. I graduated in 2005 and went to a vocational school a couple years after. It wasn't until 2014 that I found out about financial aid and suddenly the impossible finally seemed obtainable. I had zero support when I decided to go back to school but it felt right so I did it anyway. Now I have tons of support and the same ones that were discouraging me are now telling me how proud they are.

    Another thing is going vegan 6 months ago. I went from loving all kinds of meat, dairy, and eggs to literally being repulsed by it all. I'm really shocked at how much my taste buds have changed and the positivity I feel inside my body by not ingesting animal bi products and their flesh.


    Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing your stories,

    Forgive people who have hurt me or at least forget them.

    Have you ever gone to the pool?

    My favorite hobby is swimming. When I go to the pool I feel happy. When I go down to the water I feel that all the fatigue leave me, and I feel a psychological comfort. So when I feel narrow I go to the pool.

    Hey Jessika!

    Honestly, I think going to college in general is something I would have never dreamed of doing. I was going to go to culinary school (I guess you could say it's college? I see it more as professional school), but I ended up pursuing a Bachelor's instead.

    I never thought I would be studying what I am right now, I thought I knew what I wanted so many times but never put a finger on architecture until last year!

    Hey Jessika!

    I don't even know you but I'm so proud of you! And this is such a great question. I also never dreamed I'd go to any kind of school after high school, and I am enrolled in a tech school now, but I haven't started yet. It's a daunting task.
    But my answer is really far away from that - I never thought I'd ever be a climber. I've always wanted to rock climb, but never really got the chance to until a couple years ago when I was part of an adventure gap-year program. Since then I've actually lead sport climbs and climbed indoors and outdoors barefoot. I've had so many accomplishments since starting and I am much more confident and assured.
    Doing things you thought you couldn't really does wonders!
