Gratitude

3/365

I started at my local community college today. I’m taking a mathematics and a symbolic logic course. I am so grateful to be at a point in my life where I have the support I need–both mentally and financially–to try something like this.


It has been really cold here the last few days. I mean, Seattle cold, not like midwest cold. But still, these temperatures make me realize how lucky I am to have the right clothes and a cozy apartment. I’m about to go running in 29-degree weather and that’s only possible because I know I have someplace safe and warm to return to.


When I was driving from school to work this morning I looked in my rearview mirror and saw our beautiful mountains. I’ll never think of anywhere else but the Pacific Northwest as home and if I’m going to live like that I’m sure glad she’s so pretty.

  1. Cold really is relative to the available clothing and housing, and 29 does sound unusual for Seattle (which is a beautiful place). School and the support to pursue it sound like an adventure.

  2. Taking classes is a big step forward and a great way to meet people. I met many friends in my math classes because I needed more support. Good luck on your journey in education!
