A New Journey

I recently started something I have wanted to do for many years – I enrolled in an MBA program. Way back after working a few years out of college, I wanted to be a lawyer. I was accepted into law school and was even awarded a small scholarship – but that was around the time my dad died, and as the oldest in my family, I felt I needed to stay employed in case Mom needed anything. A couple of years later, after entering the private sector, I figured an MBA was the logical next step. Since I was a Literature major, I started taking college math courses to prepare. Around that time, I got married, got pregnant, miscarried, got pregnant again, almost miscarried again – and then stopped all extra activities to focus on my pregnancy. A few months later, my beautiful son was born. Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t last and I became a single parent for the next 8 or so years. Fast forward to 2016: I am married to an amazing man and we have two boys in college. Now it is my turn.

The next 18 months will be challenging – the first two weeks of my residency made that clear – but I am so excited about this journey. It is never too late.

  1. Oh my gosh, how exciting! I know you are the kind of person who will really make the most of this, and you will be an asset to the program. I know you won’t have much time but I hope you can keep us posted!

    1. Thank you for your encouragement. It has been a long time since I’ve been a student so it is an adjustment. The days and nights were long – I even almost pulled an all-nighter the other day! Thank goodness I had the weekend to recuperate. BTW, I did manage to squeeze in a yarn store visit in Canada – there’s no stopping a yarnaholic!!!

  2. Awesome. Congratulations on your new journey, and all the best. 🙂
    Love your pictures and thank you for sharing with us. Keep us posted, we love taking all your journeys with you.

    1. Thanks for your support Joey! I started this program a day after my milestone birthday 😬, sort of a “happy birthday to me.” BTW, I managed to squeeze in a visit to a yarn store in Canada…post to follow.

  3. What an exciting adventure Veronica. Thank you for liking my blog post. I’ve enjoyed reading about your next step and it seems we meet people in our lives who always seem to have a dream they put away until the time is right, because at that time in life the now needs to take priority and the dream waits. Best wishes from a fellow yarnholic.
