FC: My Dream Life
2: THIS IS THE JOURNEY I EXPLORED IN LIVING MY DREAM LIFE !
4: My Dream Job
5: IN BECOMING A SOCIAL WORKER I HAD TO OVERCOME A LOT OF OBSTACLES IN MY LIF IN ORDER TO BE WHERE I AM TODAY. FIRST, I HAD TO BEGIN MY CAREER WITH COLLEGE. I HAD TO OBTAIN A BACHELORS IN PSYCHOLOGY IN ORDER TO BE A CHILD AND FAMILY SOCIAL WORKER. I WENT TO COLLEGE FOR FOUR YEARS IN ORDER TO RECIEVE MY DEGREE AND DID NOT PAY FOR MY EUDCATION OUT OF MY POCKET. I MYSELF HAD TO TAKE OUT STUDENT LOANS, SIGN UP FOR SCHOLARSHIPS, AND APPLY FOR GRANTS THEN, I HAD TO PAY THAT MONEY BACK. ONCE MORE, I DID NOT HAVE THAT MONEY IN MY POCKET SO I THEN WORKED TOWARD A JOB.....
6: Paying back loans were no JOKE ! I had to work extra hard, overtime and all in order to keep the "collectors" off my back.
7: In order to get to work, I had to have transportation. Bus and train fees were not he answer. So.... I had to buy a ride. =)
8: purchasing a car was a tough move as well. But, eventually, I made it work. When I began to look for a car, I realized that I could not afford the ones brand new on the lot. I went through all newspapers and adds that sold USED cars. I ran across a lot that would work with a college student who had little to no credit. I had a job, and that was the only way I was able to get the car because he saw that I was able to make payments. When I received the car, it was like a child to take care of.
9: monthly payment | gas | insurance
11: HOME ! | 1. HOW CAN SOMEONE SURVIVE WITHOUT A PLACE TO LIVE. WHEN I GRADUATED COLLEGE, THERE WAS NO MORE CAMPUS LIVING. SO I NEEDED SHELTER. | 2. I ONCE AGAIN WERE PAYING LOANS BACK LEFT AND RIGHT. WORK WAS OKAY BUT THAT WASNT ENOUGH. I LOOKED FOR APARTMENTS ON MYNEWPLACE.COM | 3. KNOWING THAT BILLS CAME WITH RENT INCLUDING WATER, ELETRICITY, CABLE, FOOD, WATER AND LAUNDRY ALONG WITH OTHER EXPENSES I PUT ADDS OUT IN THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER LISTINGS FOR A ROOMATE | 4. I BEGAN TO BE A REAL ADULT......
12: VACATION ! =)
13: It was a long long time before I could actually go on a vacation and enjoy myself. After four years of working hard, paying off loans, and bills within the house, paying car payments AFTER college, I was able to take my dream vacation to Miami Florida. <3 | You soon learn that being an adult and taking on your own responsibilities is not a easy task to complete. | Working hard first and playing later always pays off in a long run, You cannot go wrong with positive actions and productive ways.
