Getting a Degree Online

Education is something that can never be taken away from you.

Since I came here in the United State I realized that education is very important. Getting a good paying job is very hard to get if you don't have a degree that's why I am planning to go back to school next Spring.

Getting a degree is pretty expensive and it's very hard to be in school while you are working. Good thing there are many online universities available today. Taking your degree online saves a lot of time and you can do it in the comfort of your home.. So it means you can still work a fulltime job and study online when you get home. Awesome, isn't it?

If ever i'd continue my education I would probably get an online degree program in accounting. I love to work with numbers and I think this course is just right for me.

It was also very helpful that I found a lot of info on how to apply for federal student aid at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/

I think I am few steps away from getting a degree online ;)

Value the People Around Us



Today, I realized how important it is to value the people around us. He/she may be a stranger we met down the street, a random guy who added us on facebook, a family, a close friend or a neighbor-- he/she should be valued as an individual who also has his/her own hopes, dreams, joys, pains, problems, abilities, interests, things to do and opinions.

When was the last time we respected the opinion of other people? When was the last time we listened attentively to our friend's problem?

We should always keep in mind to treat other people the way we want to be treated. We should accomodate and appreciate not only the people who are close to our hearts but also the people who have crossed our path everyday.

The Bible says:

“Do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants of one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself’. But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you are not consumed by one another.”
[Galatians 5:13-15]

Have You Realized How Blessed You Are?

There are a lot of great things in life that I think we have to enjoy. Some of them are seem very little to notice but I think it's great to realize that "hey, this thing make me happy today" or "I feel so secured because of this little thing".

There are just so many blessings to count everyday if we pay attention. Like today, it's been great. My whole family went to church and ate breakfast together afterwards. When we got home, we enjoyed some great movies on Direct TV. Things like these were not very enjoyable to me before I had no work .. worse, I didn't even notice it but nowadays that I only get to have one day off a week, a day with my family is just so enjoyable.

How about those days when there was no security service available yet? Those days were scary. Today we should be thankful because even we leave our house unattended, we have security service available that would protect our houses. I've read this site about  home security north little rock and realized "wow, it's amazing what the technology can give to us now, we sure are blessed to be living in this time."

There are just so many things that I can think of that make me think "I'm just so blessed". How about you?
