Believe in yourself

Hey readers, I apologize for not blogging for a bit. Most of my blogs have been my Sims stories. Thank you to everyone who has been following along with the story of The Reese generation. Right now I am currently preparing to return to college and pursue a Master’s degree. I have some of the application finished . All that I need is to write a personal statement and submit my prose. This is something that I have been brainstorming since January. Honestly, I believe that I can do this but, you know that there is always that fear. Can I do this?
Will I get in?

Yet, I spent the past five years wavering back and forth about returning to school. Right now for me, this is a goal that I will achieve. No matter what happens, I am proud of myself that I took a chance. I haven’t told anyone about this because I feel as though I will receive the same feedback that I did in ’08. Those who I discussed this with back then did their best to deter me.

‘You will never get a job with a Masters.”

” Why are you going back to accumulate more debt”.

The fact of the matter is I have to live my own life. Everyone has an opinion but ultimately I make the decision. I believe that I can do this. I do anything that I put my mind to. I believe that if you want something bad enough you have to go out and get it. You have to fight the demons and the negativity. Never give up on your dreams or yourself just because there is no one else who believes in you. My time is coming soon. I am ready for all the blessings that will come.

Take care everyone.

 

Generation Reese episode 18: The Wedding

Hey everyone, Mike Reese here.

I bought a dragon egg for the family since we don’t have any pets.

Mom spent some time talking to it.

But, Lindsey immediately bonded with the little monster.

Meanwhile, Merle went to Wednesday’s room to truly introduce himself to her now that she is older.

Lindsey finally learned after a half dozen times how to conjure up an apple.

Little did she realize that while practice magic her egg was hatching.

Suddenly, out popped a little green dragon named Daenerys, after Daernerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.

Everyone sat down for an early morning breakfast before the wedding.

Sadly none of the kids could attend the wedding on account of school.

Mikaela was a blushing bride, not even a tiny bit nervous.

I was the first person dressed for the ceremony but, the last to leave the house.

Everyone arrived on time which was awesome.

Screenshot-763

Merle and Mikaela are so in love and I am very happy for them.

My dad showed up ( as always) in his best suit.

Mom was happy that he came.

Leighton had to go to work which was a bummer.

You may now kiss the bride.

Everyone stood up and clapped accept for the dude with the red wings.

Grandma arrived late but, at least she arrived which was all good.

Mikaela cut the cake and took a slice for herself.

Screenshot-782

She ate it alone at the table.

Merle sat down with grandma whose table manners are less than desirable.

Screenshot-784

Lori showed up for her slice of cake.

Screenshot-785

The dude with the red wings is so late with his applause. Poor guy.

Mom sat down to eat with Parker and Lori.

Dear Recent College Grads..

Dear Recent College Graduates,

When I was eighteen years old, I had a plan.

I would graduate college, get a job, finish my novel, move out, pay down my loans and attend graduate school by the time I was 25.

There was even a clause for marriage by 29 and a bundle of joy by 31.

My 29th birthday is less than two months away and I did not complete a single goal.

The reason is because it took me a decade to figure out that life does not always go as planned.

Sometimes a monkey wrench flies straight through your plans when you least expect it.

I am two months from my 29th birthday,

right now I do not have any children,

nor am I planning on tying the knot any time soon.

I am working with a career counselor to find employment.

My student loans are in deferment.

I live at home with my mother and four cats.

I will attend graduate school in the fall of 2014.

My novel is 85 percent finished.

Things happen for a reason.

I was once a recent college grad, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

The gifts and congratulations poured in nonstop once I graduated.

A year later when I was unable to find employment at first, then came the negative nellies.

Looking back, I wonder why I allowed them to get under my skin.

I achieved something awesome yet, I did not feel good enough.

Trust me when I say, that there is nothing wrong with cutting negative people out of your life.

It is okay to dream.

Not every college grad falls right into their careers.

Not everyone succeeds at the same time.

You will succeed and become something fantastic.

Things will not always be bad in your life.

A college education is not a waste of time in any way.

You are never too old for anything in life.

Your time will come.

You have your whole life ahead of you.
