Dream comes true…I’m speechless!

Posted on: October 22, 2008

To achieve great things we must live as though we were never going to die.
Marquis de Vauvenargues

God is good and His love endureth forever!! I just got into my fourth year specialisation New Media y’all… ah my day could not end on a more happier note…I’m spilling over with joy and tears are streaming down my face because there were times were though maybe I won’t make it… but here I am saying… I actually made it…. and it was not by my strength nor might but by the man upstairs.

I have been dreaming about this day to come and it’s finally here- it feels like I’m in living in a dream-someone pinch me please! My gosh this feeling is incredible. The feeling of… thinking I got in. I got through three years of varsity and finally got into new media… ahh I feel like screamimg from the top of my lungs because my majors Drama 3 and Journ 3 are not subjects that a weak character must take on, you must know your eish, be focused and plan well in advance! At times crying and shying away from work doesn’t work, everyday I’d tell myself to pull it together.

Of course, mommy dearest is THE PERSON I should thank for helping me push this far. If it wasn’t for my moms encouragement then I probably would’ve dropped out-thanks mommy, really I know it’s been hard paying fees every year and making sure my dreams of getting a university education come true. This woman has sacrificed so much. I remember  when I would go back home for vacs and there would be no grocery in the fridge because my mom made sure I come back home safe and sound via plane. She’s been selfless and one day I pray that I turn out like her. I pray that I can repay all that she’s invested in me. When I graduate in 2010 I’ll be doing it for her, no one else. I want to be the first grandchild to get a university degree and make my mother proud!

Another person whom I should mention, has made me dream bigger than big. He is the love of my life, my man. He makes me stretch my faith to the furtherest ends. He inspires me to be the best I can be and he has been there for the past three years encouraging and edifying me through and through. He asked me out two months before coming to Rhodes and I can’t believe that we’ve made it this far. This December we celebrate our third year anniversary…ahh I’m wiping tears from my cheeks because has supported me even though at times things seemed impossible, he stood in the gap for me and believed in my dreams. There are very few guys out there like my man and I appreciate him so much!

“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable”. Christopher Reeve

My dream has become inevitable. Now I feel like I can just start and be thrown into the deep end…. ah the sleepless nights, no social life, working weekends, adrenaline rush… ah music to my ears! I can’t wait. I wish my exams and vac could fast forward so I can get into it….Now, since I’ve made it into my specialisation, I need to start thinking where I’ll be working and for which company…hmmm luckily I’ve got my internship with the Times Multimedia team secured for Dec so I’ll see from there. But ag let me live in the moment, I’ll think about the ‘life after new media’ next week…* sigh* It’s done now… all done! Thank you Lord!!!!!!
