What I REALLY want to do...
I was thinking about this post and then thinking about the fact that work people read it. But that's ok because I'm sure that they also have dreams beyond their work. I don't think there are many people that look around and say 'yes, I have gone as far as I'd like to go'. And if you say that and you're under, say, 50. Shame on you. Plenty of life left to live.

Anyways, last summer I got it in my head that maybe I should just look to see what is out there in terms of school. I have never gone to post secondary, and I'm almost thirty. I worry about going through the rest of my life with the sign "uneducated" hanging over my head.

So I sent an email or two to the local college to inquire about their writing programs.

Yeah, the next day my boss calls me in and asks me if I want to go back to school. Hmmmm, I think, this is too much of a coincidence. So I let him know that I was looking for some part time courses to learn more about writing.

His wife is the head of the writing department and I'd basically sent her the email.

Ooops.

But there was no fallout, I hadn't done anything wrong other than examine my options. Plus, I was (and still am) looking at a Technical Writing Certificate, something that would fit well with my job already. Just for the heck of it, I've already started a training manual for the new hires at work. That is technical writing. Taking something and explaining it to others. Plus, there are other manuals that could be re-written because things change all the time in any business...

I would like to write for a living. There, I admit it. I can't help it. The thought of being able to get paid all the time for writing... wow... I think that would be IT for me.

If it's any consolation, I was just looking at interior design programs at the local college ... I'm such a geek.

I hope that you never censor your writting based on who might read it. Having dreams is essential to progressing in life. To have a passion for writting such as you do...well,to say the least, many should envy it and do.
