Busy Busy Busy

Classes have started up again and so of course the knitting seems to be making only minute progress. A row here and there but hardly worth blogging about.

So far I am excited by my classes, a big change from some of the classes I was doing last year, and am really looking forward to learning new things. Things that were problems before seem to be slowly resolving or turning out not to be as much of a problem as I had anticipated. Having said that this is still the first week, ask me about it all at the end of the term.

This week seems to be a time of catching up with people I haven't seen much of lately, one person in particular I hadn't seen for 11 years, and there have been lots of discussions of the 'you have changesd so much variety'. I have to say it's rather weird chatting to someone who knew me before I had Miss B and who I didn't see as much of once Miss B was born. Someone who is able to remind me of the teenage person I was and who I apparently no longer resemble. ( I am hoping that is a good thing). I have decided that some teenage things are just not meant to be remebered. ( The haircuts, the clothes, the boyfriend, etc.)

My life has changed so much in the last few months and yet the past has snuck up on me and part of me feels like I am right back there. Almost a circle, but when I think about it, it's not really a circle as everything else has changed.
It has been good to look at where I was and realise how far I have come. It's nice to look back on the people who helped along the way and to now be able to really see how much their input actually impacted on different levels. It would seem I still have a few people to catch up with and thank.

It still amazes me that it is sometimes the person you had the briefest contact with can be the person who made the biggest difference.

Who made the biggest difference in your life?

It is difficult to nail down one person for me because there are so many. Interestingly, besides my family, I find that my teachers had a great affect on my outlook of life.

I became pregnant my junior year of high school with my daughter. She was born in June and I returned to school to finish my senior year (I then went on to finish college too..)
I had a teacher who pulled me and my mother into her office when she found out I was pregnant and told me "I really hope you seriously consider an abortion because if you have this baby you will not make anything of your life."
Because she said that, I was out to prove her wrong. Now my daughter is 8 and I know that I made the right choice for me.
