I found my old college I.D.'s tonight & it just brought up a lot of old memories. When I got right out of High School, I wanted to be a Fashion Designer more than ANYTHING!! Unfortunately I didn't get to go to a school for that. I went my first year of college at Central Baptist College in Conway, Arkansas & then I started going to University of Central Arkansas. I pledged a sorority that semester & I guess you could say I became "unfocused" on school & more on socializing. I never could decide what I wanted to do with my life, so I quit college & went out to get a "real" job. I started working at a Christian psychiatric clinic & I loved that job. It was good for a few years until my co-worker became my boss & we didn't see eye to eye.

Anyways, I won't go through all of my jobs & their ups & downs. But, do you ever wonder what your life would've been like if you actually did what you wanted when you were 18? (Probably a lot of you have done what you planned to do) Sometimes I do, but I've sorta lost the passion for Fashion. I have a sewing machine & would love to start sewing again, but honestly...I've forgotten how. I also sometimes wonder if I will ever go back to school to finish college & get a degree. I still don't know what I would major in. I have such bad anxiety & thinking about going back to school makes it even more intense. I always had a hard time focusing in school & I took medicine for ADD. Would I have to go back on that? I don't want to, because I didn't really like taking it. I like my job now (working in property management with low-income housing). Who knows where this life will take you. What plans God has for you. I guess as long as your happy with your life thats all that matters :)



  1. This just made me remember looking at all the gowns you designed during yearbook. I'd forgotten all about that!

  2. How fun - I love seeing old pictures! I'm gonna have to work on getting my IDs scanned again...

  3. College was hard for me, but I made it through....the hardest part was trying to pick my major...I finally just picked my major based on the classes that I liked the best!

  4. I think about that ALL the time. I wish I'd pursued my passion earlier in life. But then again, I might not have met the hubs or had the dude!

  5. I was just talking about this the other day--I wish I had went away for college. While I have known what I wanted to do since elementary school (and went to a specific college for that major), I still wish I would have gone somewhere out of state.

    I'm with you, it's God's plan and everything happns for a reason, but I do wonder about the what ifs...
