Now that I am a grown-up, I wish I knew what happened to that very determined little girl who didn't want to get left behind. It's not so much that I feel left behind, I just have no idea what I want. I don't know what I want to do with my life. I'm getting in shape and taking care of myself which is all good, but now what? I don't know what job I want and I don't know what career I want. I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology with a concentration in women's studies, I've been a supply specialist in the Army, an events coordinator and a stock broker. I have no clue what's going to be next and I kind of wish I could figure it out.

In first grade, I was in a lower reading group than all my friends. So, I went to the local library and checked out the higher level reading book and spent all weekend learning the whole book. The following Monday, I went to school and told my teacher that I could read the whole book and should be in the higher reading group. She had me read for her and put me in the reading group with my friends.
