From a young age, I knew I wanted to eventually be a college graduate, wife, and mother. As of right now, I am none of those things, but I am getting closer to reaching my goals every day. Also, I have added wanting to become an English teacher to that list as well. 

     You may think my dreams are too traditional, but I am convinced that I am called to be those things in the future. On the other hand, you may have dreams that are not as traditional, such as wanting to travel the world after graduating or opening a bizarre new business. Whatever your dreams are, I want you to know, they matter. They do not just matter in the future, but they matter in the present too.

Spring Break is such a teaser for the summer (even though I am taking summer classes for some of the semester). I mean really, as I sit here and write this story, Spring Break has been so nice and long and it has been a break, and now we are back to reality, working our butts off in classes and pushing through the end of March to get to May for exams. Even though I did not go to Myrtle Beach or Florida over the break, I did go to Washington, D.C., for a day trip. I have not been since I was a little girl. I got to experience the D.C. traffic, how busy it is with all of the people, and went sightseeing. D.C. is definitely much, much bigger than Richmond, and traffic is much worse. But, the stress to come for this week in classes is always a pain. During Spring Break, you either catch up with work and feel like you got a lot accomplished or you had a lot of fun and still have a lot of work to do for your classes.
