Cover of The Shawshank Redemption

Took a tour of Ohio State Reformatory, which is where the title of this post came from, Shawshank Redemption was filmed here. Anyway my post is not about a prison or a movie but a new adventure I’m undertaking. At the convincing of a very dear friend I am going to be learning and writing Grants for non profits. There is a large need in our area, I’m a huge fan of non profits, and it pays well which is something I need to concentrate on…tired of struggling to make ends meet each day.

The problem I’m having is my little ole brain. It’s telling me I can’t do it, I’m not smart enough, although I’ve been assured I am. It’s such a stretch for me to do this. I love learning new things so there is that but it’s an important job, people are counting on me to get funding they need. oye!

Studying is a a problem for me, I’m taking a Grant Writing course online, I have a problem staying present with the lectures and note taking is my downfall! Must make brain work. Any advice for taking notes? Reading is even worse for me, I tend to skim and get distracted easily oh it’s 12:15 time for lunch 🙂

No seriously, send me good thoughts, and great advice I want to do well with this.
