My Graduation!

I finally did it! I graduated from college yesterday! Over 22 years ago, I graduated from high school and went directly to college. At that time I wanted to be a journalist. I was editor-in-chief of my high school newspaper for a few years and was convinced this was the field for me. I loved to be on the radio and interned at a local radio station.
At that time, I had room mates and that's where my love of cooking blossomed. I was always making some dish or other. Long story short, I lost my scholarship, and had to drop out of school. I thought my dream of finishing college was over.

I worked a variety of retail management positions until I got married and had a family. Finally my kids were old enough for me to go back to school and find a field I wanted. I became a stem cell donor in 2009 and came to the realization I wanted to become a Phlebotomist. (blood sucker) I also would like to be a Nurse. (if I can make it through Chem this summer)
my youngest still has pneumonia and couldn't come

It's not been easy over the last year and a half but we made it! Our 15th wedding anniversary was on May 23rd and my graduation was yesterday and I had my first job interview this past week. I am excited about my career for the first time in a long time. I still hope to blog on my free time and try new things. The sky is the limit! It will be so nice to be able to have money lol
