on my way...

My favorite thing is to go where I've never been. ~ Diane Arbus
I came back to clarify...some seem to think I'm going somewhere. And I am. But only metaphorically. There won't be any weekend getaways for a while. We have a business to focus on and finances to coddle.
No...I'm not going anywhere physically. But this quote made me think of my journey...and where I'm headed. And I'm still pumping myself up about school...trying to stay excited and positive. And not terrified and discouraged. If I think about it too much...the work load, the nights away from home, the papers, the senior project!...I tend to want to wimp out. So...instead I think of the goal. The end result. Keep my eye on the prize. And look forward to going somewhere I've never been...the college graduate club. I can't wait.
