The Journey to an Educated Me > Posts > You're Closer Than You Think
I started reading a book from a well-known Pastor. In this book he tells a story about a hike that he took, and at the beginning of the hike there was a sign that said the hike would take 3 hours. After one hour, he was not convinced he could do 2 more. He happened upon a older gentleman that seen his agony and looked at him and said, "Your closer than you think!!" The Pastor thought that was a nice gesture, but could not get out of his mind the sign that said 3 hours. After about two more turns, and 10 more minutes, he reached his destination.
I shared that story with you because I am in the last 15 min (per say) of my journey as an undergraduate student. I want to encourage you that even after you add up all the credit hours you need, divide them into semesters and multiply them into years, YOU STILL ARE CLOSER THAN YOU THINK!! I have been on this journey for six years, and I am here to tell you, the best of times are in the last stretch... so stop with the mathematic mania, and enjoy because you are closer than you think!!
