A moment in the park with Trinity, my girlfriend Sue and her daughter Anna where time stood still. The second image is of Trinity reaching out for mommy to give her a push. Although her shadow is small right now, it wouldn’t be too long before I will be seeing her off to college. That would be when we'll find out whether all the pushing and the encouragement throughout the years payoff, or it will be a push of the past.
Speaking of push and college. My girlfriend Sue in the picture was talking about how she would like do something meaningful for herself. She is very business savvy but always thought she needed a good foundation, or the credentials to back-up her experiences. She wanted to pursuit a degree in business and said she is considering the University of Redlands, as they have one of the top business schools. She has been researching about different universities and found that there are 40 plus majors and programs to choose from at Inland Empire college . She will be in good hands as the ratio of students to teachers is 17:1 that is considered pretty low. Plus, in the past two years the school has produced six Fulbright Scholars, now that is amazing output for any school.
The fear for many students when they graduate is not being able to find a job, or not being able to get the salary they desire. After all many of us that have gone to school have spent the money and time in hoping that our higher education will bring lucrative results. According to payscale.com, Redlands graduates' (15+ years) earning potential ranked in the top 30 nationally.
So with all the information Sue has gathered about the California business school what is stopping her from going after her mission? Nothing, she already has her plans laid out, and ready to present it to her husband, the president of the house.
In this last image I could almost see the expression of joy, smiles on Trinity's face while she swings.
