Big Girls Don't Cry, They Work Hard

I have the same routine every week. It's like it never ends. I know I am just a graduate student right now but, I feel like I have been college for 20 years! It drains me sometimes! I also am working at Victoria's Secret and I love it! I absolutely love it! I am in school for Fashion Journalism at the Academy of Art University. It is a little different than an undergrad, which took me 7 long, lengthy years to finish but, I did it! with hard work and dedication you can do anything. Some people think complaining will get them somewhere but, you have got to learn that you have to work to get where you want, nothing in life is just handed to you.

Preparing myself for the viscous and competitive world of fashion is exciting! I am so ready to jump out there and make my way to the top! It's been amazing trying my hardest to get where I want to be in life! I have had so many ups and downs in my life and they have impacted me greatly. Just in the past five years I have been in a horrible relationship leaving me broke, financially unstable, a dropped GPA, no friends, a broken heart, no vehicle, living with my parents, low self esteem and fear of never being able to pick up the pieces. But I woke up. I faced reality. I put on my big girl pants and I made changes in my life. I dropped the low life boyfriend. I moved to another city, transferred to a better school, got a beautiful house, met an amazing man, who I am engaged to now, studied hard and got my GPA back up and graduated, got two jobs and became financially stable. With all this I raised my confidence and gained a whole lot of self esteem and understanding that I was and am an amazing woman!

 My standards have been raised above average! I don't settle for less! I may be a little self absorbed now, but I don't care. I don't need anybody to tell me how to run my life or how to make decisions. I never had help putting my life back together. Although, I had supporters, all the work was done because I made a commitment to myself. I had to do it alone then and I don't need anyone coming in to tell me how to do it now. Friends come and go, they really do. I know some people believe they are there for life, but face reality, their not. The closest friends I have had in the last five years have lied to me, stole from me, stabbed me in the back, tortured me, ruined my life and slept with my ex-boyfriends, one if which was currently my boyfriend when it happened. Those are not friends, just great examples of bad morals, low standards and hypocrites. I don't need anyone to hold my hand and walk me through life I'm a big girl now with big girl dreams and I am going to get to the top all by myself and make of the people who treated me wrong, feel stupid. Especially when they aren't going anywhere in life and they are shell shocked to see where I am and what I have become.

I have had many supporters like, my grandparents and my fiance. I have picked up some friends along the way but, also dropped some too. I work hard for what I have. I do for me and my little family and I don't take no for answer, I work harder to get that yes. My whole life has been obstacles and bumps but, I have been strong enough to use this negativity and turn it into a positive for my life.
