That's the truth! At least in some ways for me.
My dad has been back to some of his old shenanigans. I'm learning that he has this weird idea that by trying to manipulate me out of culinary school, he can chart my future. The strings attached are just getting in my way. I'm learning to just laugh inside at this.
I'm only able to take two courses this semester as I slowly make my way to a bachelor's degree. I'm getting help from the school in finding grant money because I don't want his financial help. And I absolutely don't want to take out loans.
This is also allowing me to add extra hours to work, and I'm putting that money aside for school.
Anyway, I'm very happy with my plan. It's not making life any easier... but like it says above, I am most definitely getting stronger. And that is worth a lot to me!
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
