"I’m not only proving myself, but I’m proving to my kids that once your start something, even though it’s hard, you don’t quit."

Being a hockey mom of two kids and taking them to their practices three to four times a week, I bring my books and laptop to the rink and sit in a corner to either read my book or post on Blackboard. As soon as we get home, they need help on their homework, so I will help them first and as soon as they’re in bed, I’m in front of the computer.

Another thing I do is carry a little notebook with me to write down any ideas that pop into my head; it’s really aggravating when you can’t remember that great idea you had and wanted to add to your paper. The word is ‘commitment;’ you really need to commit the time and yourself to finish what you started. I’m not only proving myself, but I’m proving to my kids that once your start something, even though it’s hard, you don’t quit.
