But I just figured it out!!!

Long after the time has come where you are supposed to choose what you can do with your life after graduation: military, workforce, or college-I found myself in that bleak spot where I didn't think I would be. I'm relocated in the southern state of Georgia and now have a ten month child. Go figure.

I figured after high school and graduation away from the lames, I would further my life into doing what I dreamed of: a writing career that took me beyond international borders where magazines would be throwing themselves at me. I pictured lots of travel where I could scream to the mountains after a stint in the Peace Corps, being solo and independent with the breeze blowing through my hair. I just knew I had it all figured out, and whatever happened would be the best thing for me...but I would be independent, by myself and happy wit…
