A Little Motivation

My dad has put out a little incentive for both my sister and I to get our degree. However, I think the incentive is aimed a little more toward me considering at this point, I could have about 3 degrees by now. Meanwhile, my sister will have her bachelors by age 19. I have 13 classes left (39 credits).

The original plan was for us to go on a cruise this fall as my sister and I originally thought we'd both graduate this summer. I obviously am not and the last couple of classes she needs are not offered when she needs them.

So the trip has been pushed back some. And has changed a bit.

My sister is scared to go on a cruise thanks to the brainwashing of my mother. In addition to that, she is scared to travel by plane for the same reason. My dad paid $1000 for a ticket for my sister to fly from SC to KY and my sister didn't go. Okay, off topic...

Sis #2 is dying to go to Ireland. She goes to sleep each night listening to Celtic Woman CDs. My dad and stepmom were stationed there on Embassy Duty before Sis #2 was born and I was never able to get out there to visit.

Sis #1, the one scared to fly, is cool with the all expenses paid trip to Ireland. I, of course, am thrilled.

Sis #2 is researching places and things she wants to see while over there. At dinner the other night, she was already had a list.

So if I can hurry up and get this damn thing year I'll be spending a week or two in Ireleand with my family.
