The summer is almost over and I haven't posted a thing. A lot has happened though. I had to put a few things on hold for a while so I could focus on my new apartment and current job. Now I'm back and ready for action! Stay tuned; I might even add another post tonight!

I find that my reading preferences change every summer. This year, I am reading self improvement books peppered with chick lit. The book I am most interested in is "The C Student's Guide to Success" written by Ron Bilwas. I am going to use the next few blog posts to feature my responses to a few of the chapters in his book. I welcome any discussions on the topics I pick.
See you online,

Today is my birthday!!! It's been one crazy year since my last one, I don't really know what is in store for me for the next. This year, I will complete my undergraduate degree, search for a new full time job and plan to move out on my own.
It seems that, unlike some or many my age, I see these things as huge obstacles ready to trip me up and pull me down as soon as I approach them. I am faced with mountains of uncertainty: What if I don't find a good job? or even a crappy one? Where am I going to live? What if I haven't done enough these last few years of college to mean something to an employer, or even my parents?
One thing is for certain, though. My generation, for all its flaws and self deserving attitudes, is flexible. And, as a member of this generation, I can take those risks and venture out into the unknown. So, as I get older and gain more responsibility, what is there to be afraid of? Opportunity? My pop culture professor said yesterday, "The hardest thing about writing is the beginning. You have to call the whole world into existence on your page." I have nothing but beginnings ahead of me and the hardest part is only to keep moving forward. I have done my best in school and work. I am creative. And I am ready for the future!
Happy Birthday, indeed!
