Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, photos, food, and the occasional life rant. Dine and travel with me through my blog!

Cloud 9

Cloud 9

Words cannot exemplify this feeling that I have. I thought that when I achieved my Bachelor's Degree that I had been on Cloud 9. And to a degree I was. But the feeling of accomplishing a MBA is something that will never be taken from me. No degree I've earned could ever be taken from me, but I'm referring to the feeling you get when you've completed it.

I just recovered from two all-nighter sessions of writing papers and developing annotated presentations about large corporations and their future financial strategies involving marketing campaigns and product development. I'm sure this jargon bores you right now; I understand. But the point is that I did it. I am damn proud of myself. I had days of great accomplishments, and I had hard days - hard days where I doubted myself and my capabilities to complete this rigorous program. The love and support from my family and friends has helped me get through this out on to the other side.

What's next on my plate? Well for most of you who know me in real life know very well that I don't sit still very easily. I may take another vacation and focus on myself. Take some much deserved R&R to recover from the year I just had. And let me tell you, that year was riddled with health scares, death, illness of loved ones, loss of relationships, etc. It's as if life gave me a little extra kick in the rear since graduating from UTSA. But I did it. I did it with courage and support from all of you as well as my faith. 

I'm sure my next vacation will come and go, and I'll look in the mirror and ask myself, "What next?" The answer to that question will throw me into another life-changing project that will require my whole being. I was put on this earth to work - why stop now?

Thanks for reading. Many more to come.
