I have made friends. Friends that share my interests and goals. I have learned lessons that will not be found in any books. This is the culmination of two years of finding out what my strengths and weaknesses are. It is a new beginning for a girl who never knew what she wanted or where she would go.
The truth is, I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up, but at least I have skills that will lead me in the right direction. Of course I am nervous about what comes next. What school will I attend to earn my next degree? Will I be able to find employment in this less than promising job market?
I don't know. What I do know, is the people and experiences that I have gained during these years, I would not trade for any job. So even if I end up right back where I started, I know that I tried, and I enriched my life in the process.
So the only question left is where will I go from here?
