I graduated High School some 21 years ago. I had no real idea of where I was or where I wanted to go. The year following high school found me running in circles to nowhere fast.

These days my path is less uncertain but still far from figured out. There are things that are certain: I am mom to a HS senior, I work in a field that holds little interest to me for the last sixteen years and my major in college is something completely unrelated to the job that pays the bills.

There is uncertainty in what I will do with my degree that I am seven classes short of finishing. If nothing else I am persistent despite the obstacles I have encountered to meet my educational goals set some two decades ago.

One step at a time.
