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.  

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.
