A Good Shake

Well, today I said goodbye to my second career of my adult life.  It was short lived.  Here's a picture of my empty desk.


Now, I am looking forward to my next adventure.  Many of you have asked what that means.  Well, I am not sure.  There are so many great opportunities out there.  New places to see.  New people to meet.

As most of you know I am currently in grad school...so, I have something to keep me plenty busy.  
Change is good.  Sure I am close to being over "the hill."  But for goodness sakes I have a lot of living to do.  

Surprisingly, I am very calm as I take the book of life and give it a good shake.

Bump in the Road

I have hit a bump in the road called life.  For the last few weeks, I have been busy looking for a new job.

Unfortunately, my position at the college will not be renewed.  It's been a great experience; no regrets.  I have used the time away from news to study for the GRE, and actually achieving a milestone in my life.  Grad school.  

So, I need a little inspiration.

Grad School Problems

Get excited.

Not a sad mess. I promise.


Hello!  I have spent the last 6 months, on and off, studying for the GRE.  Well, I took my test last weekend, and I did ok. Now, my score could have been a lot higher--I just have to hope it will get me into the program, which tops my list.  Actually, I should rephrase that; the only school on my list.  It is kind of scary to only have one basket.  Get it eggs, basket...




There is a good chance I won't get into the program this go-around.  But I am going to take a chance.  Can you believe it? Me.   

I have worked hard to achieve the label ‘Sure Shot Kat.’ Okay, okay.  You really need to get your mind out of the gutter.  I am talking about my achievements.  I won’t say my condition has limited my life experiences; it just takes me a little longer to get where I want to be at the end of my days. It's been a great ride so far.  

Sure I don’t own my own house, or have a traditional family.  But I am okay.  Yes, I am an unmarried women and I am not a sad, sobbing mess.  We do exist.  According to a study, unwed ladies are unhappy because society doesn’t approve of their singleness. (http://goo.gl/8VioP)  

Hold on.  Let me check my calendar.  Yup.  It's 2012.

Hey, society get over it.   I want to get my master’s degree.  It doesn’t mean I don’t love kids...or want to find an Adam Levine of my own.  You can throw the hitting the peak of the hill argument in my face. Here's what I have to say to you.  It's my journey--not yours.  Booyah.
