I was at Costco once, and when the guy was checking my membership card, I said, “Hey, how’s it going?”  His reply?  “A.D.I.P.”  I’m like, huh????  Another day in paradise!  I loved it!!

So here I am:  another day in paradise!  Grades were posted in my class, and I got a B+.  If I could make a capital letter a capital, this “B” would be a foot tall.  I don’t get Bs.  My whole ENTIRE day was ruined.  Seriously.

But it got better.  I checked my calendar and our corporate tax filing is due next week.  Terrific.  I have nothing else to do anyway!!!

And better … my boss texted me, livid, because our work e-mail was down.  Again.  Never mind that he is out of the state, and I cannot try to fix it for him.  Never mind that support calls to our e-mail provider mean I’m gonna be on hold for an hour.  Never mind when I finally got to speak to someone that their solution was for me to tell the hotel where my boss was staying to reset their router and unblock the firewall …

And better still … my bathtub ran over (while I was trying to uninstall and reinstall Adobe on my computer), with water pouring out of the ceiling downstairs!!!!

But, hey!!  The night (I mean morning) is young!!!  And I’ve still got 15 days left to finish my Capstone.  Good grief!!!!

To thine own self be true

Hi, everyone!  Well, I’ve decided to start writing about the crazy life I live!  My first posting is called “To Thine Own Self Be True” because a) I am working on my Capstone, and it is part of one of my sections; and b) it is fundamental to what has brought me to this place.

Over the last year, I have tried to figure out “what I’m going to be when I grow up” as I approach graduation from college in May.  May 5th, to be exact.  At 1:00 p.m.  But who’s counting?  It’s only been 37 years in the making!!  (Yep, that makes me 55 years old when I graduate.)

Unfortunately, I have no more real (workable) idea of what I want to be than I did 37 years ago!  However, I do have a much better idea of who I want to be.  Although I have spent years gathering credits here and there, completing my paralegal certificate at UCI, finally finishing at Saddleback College in December (did I TELL you I got 98% on my Algebra final????), and now, earning a BA in Business Administration and Leadership at Concordia University Irvine in two months, what I have REALLY learned is who I want to be.
