I realized three days after applying to TCC that I had not received an acceptance e-mail because they are waiting for my transcripts. All four of them - High School, 2 Undergrad colleges and 1 Grad college.

Hopefully, they will receive these soon so I can enroll in classes!

I just got back from a weekend in Arkansas with the cuz, her son and my sister. We had a pretty good time. There's never really anything exciting, just spending time with each other. It means a lot to her, otherwise I just wouldn't go. Haley was very glad that she was treated well -- I told her there was no reason to worry. So, all in all it was a successfully splendid weekend away. Good for both of us. We're all really tired for some reason though.

I still need to contact people to shadow...I look at Colton and Liam and Zander, and it seems as though you can tell now what they will succeed in at some point in the future. Zander is very intellectual and great at english. Liam is much more physical in nature and does not like to sit still. I think he'll do something with his hands. And Colton likes putting things away and playing with cords so I'm imagining him becoming an engineer, electrician or pro golfer :) I just wish my mom had made a mental note of me at that age and could tell me now what she was thinking for me.

I realize how stupid it sounds that I am wanting to, again, change my path. But, people do it all the time. And, so many people do not have the same opportunities that I am blessed with...so why not take advantage of my situation and place in life and go for more. I do not want to settle. And, I never saw myself as something other than a person with a PhD, MD or other doctorate of some sort. I know that no matter what I choose I'll do it well -- it's just finding something that I would like to do for a long time.

Dr. Habashi said, "I have no doubt that whatever you choose you will do good". I replied, "yes, I know I'll give my best into whatever I choose and I'll be good at it." She said, "No, not do well in the job, but do good for others." That really stuck with me. I hope it does for a long time.

When I was in high school, they predicted most people would have a minimum of 4 careers in their lifetime. Not jobs, careers. That was not typical back then because companies were very loyal to employees back then, and vice versa. I have lived this first hand in the years since. So I can tell you that you need to follow the paths that you can while you can. You have an opportunity to pursue options, and I'm glad to hear you are taking them! you won't regret it!

Thank you!

Yeah, now I guess they're saying 6-7 careers in the lifetime of someone in my generation. That's a lot!

So, maybe I'm just getting a jump on it early.

This blog is going inactive everyone.

I guess Agora cancelled their Agora Google account...so I can no longer log into this account.

I guess it's time to say goodbye to blogger :) It was really just a diary for me anyway.

I look forward to reading everyone's posts that can still access their's however. Like you Kristi!
