It was such a beautiful surprise to have my life to have had successes in my 30s but I don’t think it’s easy to accept failure either.

I received an email in my gmail inbox from the best school in the country Harvard University the school of Extension studies but it’s a secret school. It is the easy way into Harvard one of the thirteen schools that make up Harvard University in my best decade yet my 30s and me celebrating my 39th birthday earlier this year of 2020 present certain challenges. I had my first nomination when I was 37 year old for a blogger award. I turned 39 years old in January 2020. I know even my extension I got from my course I’m trying to finish my course with The Institute of Children’s Literature is rather generous they actually gave me until next January 2021 which will be around my 40th birthday I am going to work on my course in the library but because of the Corona virus I know the library may be closed for a while. I have to see if they reopen next weekend.
