REPLY TO MY CLASSMATE’S POST. EXPLAINING WHY YOU AGREE WITH HIS POST TO THE ABOVE DISCUSSION (A MINIMUM OF 125 WORDS EACH)
I will start with a negative time to end on a positive. A friend of mine decided to get a second job and the money looked good from a distance so I asked her to get me a job there as well. In the beginning working with her was fun and the extra money was greatly needed. I started working more and more hours after I got off my full-time job until I was always working. My friend’s husband got a job, so they did not need her working 2 jobs: so, she quit and left me there continuing to work. I work and enjoy it until my coworker sat around while I work harder and harder until I ended up having a stroke. The group of workers continued, and I was home for weeks trying to recover. I learned to surround myself with like-minded people.
A positive experience was a couple of ladies that I knew from work, school and church were always nice to me and we all begin to talk and became friends. These ladies poured into me the support and assurance of the importance of continuing my education. After suffering a stroke and a brain tumor I have completed my undergraduate and graduate degrees and now working on my second masters. Be good, do good and Good will come to you. I surrounded myself with like-minded people.
