I began writing as a young teenager to relieve myself of the many woes that had gone on in my life since birth, some of them unbeknownst to me at the time. My need to purge myself in written words turned into poetry and a love of writing in general. While writing is very cathartic, I have the gift of keen insight into others lives which I'm sure is due to volume of "life" I have lived and witnessed. It is my hope that my voice finds its audience while sharing my journey.

Dinosaur in College: online drive

I'm half way through my first online course and its better ...and worse, than I expected.

Advising mishaps, fast track courses, a lay off, a move, a transfer and a stalker.

A two year drought followed by a flood of snow. It's time to plan my second semester in college.

The Dinosaur in College

After years of successfully contracting, the market dropped out and so did my employability. I returned to college to get my degree so I would never have to hear "no degree, no job" again.
