A Visit Home and Continuing My Education

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I have been busy lately with a visit going home and of course as you can tell from the title of this post, I am now enrolled in school. More on school later.

It was wonderful being able to go back home to Pennsylvania after 8 long months. I loved being able to see my family and friends. The best part was being able to spend quality time with my 2 wonderful nephews, Bradley and Dylan. The longer I am up here in Alaska, the more I miss them. I got to spend some time with my parents and sister. My sister recently gave birth to twins. A boy and a girl. I will post more on the twins in a future post. I never thought I would say this however...My family is precious. You should cherish them while they are here. I guess I am saying this because I do not get to see them on a day to day basis like other people do. When I lived at home I was never one to tell my family how much I loved them. For some reason, we never did that. Maybe it was just the way we were all raised. Since I have moved up here to Alaska, I have told my family that I love them and I miss them tremendously. However, I know that where I am right now...in Alaska...Is where I am supposed to be. I thank the Lord I am here, with my wonderful fiance Beverli. I know I take her for granted sometimes, but I am glad she is in my life. Not a day goes by that I do not thank the Lord for putting her in my life.

While I was home I got to catch up with my best friends Ellen and Brian. Brian and I chatted alot about various subjects. My favorite discussion with him was about faith. How each of us are growing stronger in our different religions. I value both of my best friends. I miss them dearly.
Hopefully, maybe someday, they can both come up here for a visit. I would love to show them the beauty that is Alaska.

As you can tell I am now contuing my education. I am now taking online classes through the University of Phoenix. I love being enrolled in this awesome school. Working 40 hours a week and planning for my upcoming wedding, this provides me with the perfect way to continue my education. I am able to move at my own pace, my own speed. I prefer it to being in a tradtiional classroom setting. For instance, If I am working on my assignments and get frustrated I can very easily take a break and do whatever I need to do to get my mind focused again. I can come hom from work, hop onto the computer and work on my school work. It is an awesome feeling knowing that thanks to the University of Phoenix, in a few short years I will have my degree and able to live out my dreams.
