New Opportunities

Over the past few months I have come across some wonderful new writing opportunities, and at this point I am jumping on every one of them. I am excited to really be able to see my career shaping into something I can be proud of ( and can actually call a carer). Soon I will be back in school and going for my degree. I have had a lot of people tell me that I do not necessarily need a degree for what I want to do, but there is something about gaining more knowledge that is currently alluring to me. Besides, I want to set a good example for future people in my place. Just because you can slide by without a degree doesn't meant you should. And under no means should you go to school just because someone says that is what you should be doing. (Trust me, I made that mistake as well.) Figure out what you want for yourself and then go for it. Full throttle. I am so glad I did, and even though it took me a few years longer than my friends, I am already feeling like a success and looking forward to the great possibilities of tomorrow.
