Random Posting

1. I woke up to see my baby and wife.
2. I was able to wake up and know that I have love in my life and caring people in my life.
3. I have three weeks of school left!

So, I am sitting in my Race and Minority relations class and I just feel the need to write down what I am feeling/what I am thinking. I feel a bit bored with school right now. It is getting close to the end of the semester, things are coming to a due date and I just feel no motivation to do any of it. I want to just take care of my baby girl and my wife. The more I think about school the more I stress. I know I need to get things done, but I just have no motivation to get it done.
I think I need a bit of relaxation time, but have no time to do such. Maybe I should just put my shoulder to the wheel and push along to get through this storm. Internal motivation is needs to push me. Although, it is hard to push yourself when you feel that you are out of gas. If I didn't have to work I think it would help me get things done for school, but then again, if I had more time to do nothing, I probably would be doing nothing anyway.
What I am going to do is just put my head down, bear this storm and get through it. I think I just stress too much about school and just need to relax from it, get it done and move on. Dwelling on the stress of school wont do anything for me. I can only do as well as I can, which can be very good. I need to surround myself with good influences of motivation and strength. My mother has great strength and determination. Jim has great motivation. My wife is a strong woman. Paul is a strong man and a motivation in my life to slow down and take things as they come at you. These people are great to me and I need to pay a closer eye to them.

Much love and smoochies.

1. I had breakfast this morning and it has made my day seem to fly by.
2. My sister is happy and I am happy because she is happy.
3. My wife is going to have our baby soon!

I am writing about a quote from Shakespeare today. The quote is quite famous, but oh well.

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?
So, the way that I view this quote is saying that we can either shrug off what people say to us or we can fight against what they say. It also asks which is better to do. I think that depending on what you are hearing from others or being told by the person straight to your face, that it requires a different approach. In our society if you tell someone that you don't like the way that they do something or if they do something that offends you, you do not tell the person that they offended you or what have you, you go to someone else and have that person go to the person that offended. Although, I think that we should have the testicular fortitude to go up to the person that did something to us and say something about it.
Where it says 'suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or take arms against a sea of troubles', the way I think of this is it is saying should I deal with all the painful/hurtful things coming at me or attack back at them with a full frontal assault? Is being able to shrug off all the bad things in your life the more noble and virtuous way of living or is turning to someone who has upset you and ripping their heads off and possibly installing a new asshole a good way to approach somethings? You tell me in a comment.

I am gonna be a father!

First Three:

1. I got a good amount of sleep last night and I feel good today.
2. My wife informed me that she could feel our babies head in her birthing path.
3. I am excited to be a father.

As the title states. I am gonna be a father. So, what quote about being a father do I have?

A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman
he turns her back again. ~Enid Bagnold

This quote could not be more true. We see if every day in our lives. Fathers are wanting their little girls to grow up and be able to continue to grow and become women. But as soon as they are women and are saying things like, "Daddy, I want to marry this man. He is so wonderful." The father wants to take her back to being a baby again. I think that as the daughter grows, the father feels that she is moving too fast and it scares him. It seems as though when a child starts to grow up the parents want to control how they grow, even though they know that the child will grow up regardless.
What I plan to do with my child is watch their growth and keep things fairly open. I was raised this way and I think I have a fairly decent concept of life and am able to function properly enough. Although I think that children need to know what they are allowed to do and what they are not allowed to do, but also need to realize that I do not feel they must follow exactly what I have told them to do. I do not want a drone child, but I want a child to grow and flourish under my guidance.
The question I ask of my viewers, how do you raise or plan to raise your children? Or if your children are already grown, what did you do or what did you not do to help your children grow?
