A life not void of pure intent

AbsThis time of year means a lot of things to me. First of all, I work in higher education so I've been obsessively tracking enrollment data for the last four weeks because students = money = paycheck. Second of all, I'm supposed to be in school right now getting a degree in Business Cats but I once again have to take a leave of absence from school cause the rest of my life is... in disarray.

But what I observe most is that fall marks my anniversary of moving to California. I came here for school and I've never left. I was lost and now found. And I'm back again, running hard, one foot in front of the other, chin up, clear-eyed, straight into my tenth year.

I didn't realize the picture was such a big hit! Time for a fb profile pic update.

I'm so impressed! It has always been my secret (now not-so-secret) ambition to have a job wherein I drive an electric cart (and carry a walkie-talkie). *sigh*
