Wow! Just finished reading your DON'T QUIT poem and the THREE THINGS lists. Very awesome! I really needed to read all that tonight. Thank you so much! :)
Also, I chose court reporting (I'm a court reporting student at 160 wpm) because I too want to be able to truly "be there" for all my God-willing kids in the future. I want to work from home doing closed captioning.
Thanks again, Dr. Michael, for the inspiring words on your page... and I hope you have a blessed, blessed birthday!!! :)
Hi Michael...It's me again...lol. YOu are correct, I have hit a plateau and I am running out of financial aid eligibility because I have been in the same SH level for a while. And like I say I need a push. And I really cannot afford to just give up...actually I am driven to get finished to so that I can start working in this field I am so anxious...but I need help.
Thanks for welcoming me on the site. I went to Sage College and I am super excited about passing my CSR and starting to get out into the working world. Sharla and I went to the same school and she's been super helpful with myriads of questions I've been asking...lol.
Hey, Michael... It has been a while since the last time we've spoken, huh? Yes, I've had another baby. He's seven months now. So much is happening with me right now, that I'm just trying to keep my head above water. I'm still working on 160 Q&A and Lit. and 180 J.C. I am so close, and I know my problem right now is nervousness, concentration, and not enough practice time. I'm trying to learn how to purposfully put myself in "the zone." I'm going to be attending my first seminar, which is this weekend. It's the GSRA seminar. I'm soooooo excited to have some grown-up time ALL weekend to gain knowledge from all of the Georgia reporters and business owners. How has everything been with you?
Hey there - I take it you've been busy...I haven't heard from you in a couple of weeks -- actually, when I was busy. I'm not now. Been kind of slow, but I am so sure things will change -- again. Well, you have a great rest of the weekend. Just wanted to stop by and leave u a little something-something!
No, didn't freak me out. I've had people stop me in the mall and say, "Are you Betty's daughter?" Now that freaks me out because I don't think there's very much resemblance!
For the record, Betty is my mom, I am actually rather short, and currently my hair color is brown :)
My second depo cancelled today, but the first one went all right. It was a video doctor depo and pretty dense, but at least the bully attorney I was expecting to show up as opposing counsel didn't come; it was a much nicer gentleman from his office. That alone made my day!
Ventura County, just north of Thousand Oaks/Westlake. I lived in LA until December. The kids, 6 and 8, needed more space. Or maybe it was me -- two kids, husband, dog, two cats, lizard, and bird -- yeah, I needed more space! They are both in school now; so no more excuses.
Yep, that's my mom! I was going to ask you if there was a connection there because I remember her giving me a name and number right after I passed the CSR exam and I was pretty sure it was somebody local named Michael. How weird is that? I don't remember how it was that she had your name and number. What's the story?
