I was born on a Monday, November 15th 1982 at 7:30 AM. I came into this world wondering whose bright idea it was to have me so early in the morning. 11 AM or better yet noon would have been a little more humane, let a girl sleep in on what will be her first day out of the protected cocoon of her mother’s womb.
But alas, at the ungodly hour that is 7:30 AM, there I was, looking a lot more like E.T. then a baby as I stretched my neck out to look around this strange new headache giving, complicated world. Hello alien plant, after a long journey I have landed at last, now for the love of God, let me go back to sleep.
I’m at a point in my life where I am trying to figure out who I am, how I got here and what in the world am I to do with my life?
Life is scary, hard and amazing.
How did I get to where I am right now? How did my life end up so off course that I am still working in a Cafe located in a grocery store? What sequence of events left me living in a tiny bedroom with my bipolar landlord and her emo daughter who has her hateful boyfriend over all the time? How did I end up in so much dept that I won’t be able to move on until some of it is somehow paid off? Where did I go wrong? Or maybe I am exactly where I am supposed to be… Maybe God has a plan for me and this is where I am supposed to be right now. These are lessons I have to learn in order for me to maybe deal with even harder things later in life. (I shudder at just the thought.)
In this series, I want to look back and track my life thus far to try and find out exactly how I got here. And maybe, just maybe I can find a hint as to where I am supposed to go from here. Who knows, maybe 20 years after this project is completed I’ll do this again starting here, and get to see if I managed to get it right.
Welcome to the Destination: Unknown Project, I hope you enjoy the ride.
