Relationship with my parents

Back to where it all began… 

Describe your relationship with your parents

My relationship with my parents, I believe is probably very much stronger than most. My mother is like one of my best friends, who I talk to at least once a day if not more and I call home probably 6/7 days of the week. I know which parent to talk to about certain things, and I know who I can always count on to cheer me up(both of them in their own way).

My Dad is always there for my history lesson, my security system, my sports updates, and electronics update. We like to gang up on my mom when we can 🙂 (Love you mom!) We are a tag team me and my dad, we love a lot of the same things, we act the same and laugh at the same things, he makes the same faces as I do I swear and we just love to laugh with each other. I can go into deep discussions with him about a lot of things.  I can always count on him. I love him and wouldn’t want anyone else as my dad.

My mom is my rock, my shoulder to lean on and my best friend who knows pretty much all my secrets and knows me in and out. She is always looking out for me, its a mother thing and she has always got my back. She knows I’m a smart ass and yet she still sets me up to deliver a good comeback 🙂 She loves me and I love her in and out.

I love my parents. I tell them all the time, with them behind me I can never fail. They have always had my back and will drop everything to stand beside me (I know from first hand experience, hospital visit freshman year of college). My parents are my everything and I love them.

Made it through

….another weekend. But this wasn’t just any other weekend. This was my BFA Exhibit weekend. This was the Logan Film Festival Weekend. This was the “fringe” design weekend. This was the redesign of 100N Weekend. This was my parents coming in for the weekend.This was the last weekend of doing projects! By this time next week I will be done with college! I will be done with school projects and sitting in classes. I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe I am going to be graduating in 2 weeks. Thats a short amount of time when you think about it. A lot can happen in two weeks. 2 weeks of waiting. 4 days of getting through my last classes. 4 final projects due. I’m so excited!!!!!!

I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago. I’m wiser, I’m more open and outgoing, more creative, more natured, more traveled. 4 years ago I was graduating high school. Now I will be graduating college. A lot has happened in 4 years. A lot will happen in the next. I know I may not have a set path on what I am doing with my life in the next  couple of months, I know its up for grabs on the outcome of a job will be, I know I have no idea where I will be come August, but I do know its hard for my mother to let me go, I know my dad will guide me and support me through my decisions, I know my sister has got my back on whatever I do, I know my man will be there for me and keep on motivating me. I do know that I’m excited for whats to come and I can’t wait for what God has in store for me.

God has a path for me, he has plans for me, I know it may not be as fast as I would like it to be or as clear as I would, but I know its there and no matter what I have faith in him that what ever does happen will be for the benefit of me. What ever path he leads me on will be the one for me. I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago, I’m stronger than I was at the beginning of my senior year, I’m wiser, I’m focused. I’m stronger today than I was yesterday.

Bring it on world. Bring it on
