Guest Post: Happy College Days from LJ, Computer Geek

We have a very special treat for our readers this week in the form of our first ever guest blogger!

LJ is a hard working MIS Technician by day and super student by night; a devoted father and geek, more commonly known as my husband.

“How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice.” Hello avid HLM readers. Since Christmas and college finals are fast approaching, I wanted to take a few minutes to share with you all what I am grateful for this holiday season. First and foremost, I'm grateful to God for giving me a supportive family and for the means to continue my education. I have been out of school for 10 years so getting back into the groove, my first semester, has been quite an adventure. I'm actually surprised at how well I've taken to being a student again. I earned my Associates fresh out of high school so this time around, instead of being a green 18 year old, I feel somewhat seasoned and my attitude is more professional; my grades and study habits are also vastly superior to what they once were. I can remember first starting out, when I was younger, and seeing how determined the older students were; they wanted it more and now I understand why. Like them, I now have the chance to help my family and to be a role model for our little mister. I’m also discovering just how socially inclined I really am; I’ve enjoyed meeting new people and interacting with other students. I do miss the extra time with my wife and son, but Kate helps to remind me that the end justifies the means. And that is just one of the many reasons I would like to thank God for my wife. She helps me remember to keep my head up and keep moving forward when things get tough or when I feel that I have failed. She has picked up the slack at home with our son. She also helps to lift my spirit with our cheerful holiday decorations so that when I pull in the drive from a long night of classes and see our Christmas tree shining in the window, I know that I am home. I'm also grateful for our smart little boy. It may just be me, but it seems like every morning that I get to spend with him he says a new word or teaches me something and completely blows my mind. I am so proud of him and I hope that by my going back to school, one day he will be just as proud of me. Not having a strong father figure myself growing up, has taught me to appreciate the trials and hard work needed to lead my son and to help him become a strong man of God.

Thank you, to all of Kate's awesome readers for having me. Faliz Navidad, Mo'adim Lesimkha, Chena tova, Joyeux Noel, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our house to yours.
