I Must be Crazy!

I am not sure what I have gotten myself into. At 35, I have completely changed my life. I am currently in school at University of Texas at Dallas with a double major of Literary Studies and Art and Performance. I am a writer. It is what I do, what I know.

And yet, I feel as if I know nothing about it. Every time I walk into a class and see all of those bright-eyed twenty somethings, I want to turn around and walk back out. But, I don’t. I just walk in and fight the urge to smack all the prepubescent kids in the backs of their head.

You know what though? I have tried everything I can to do anything (and I mean anything) other than realize that my plan in life, my goal, what makes me happy is to write. And so, here I am at 35 fighting the urge to not smack around the kids that were smart enough to realize what it is that will make them happy early in life.

Oh well, at least I have a lot more life experience to pull from for my writing projects. Take that, you young gun. Oh, and by the way, pull your freakin’ pants up. Nobody wants to see that.


Happily married, aspiring writer that thinks sometimes the destination is worth the journey. Sometimes the journey is worth the destination. Then again, sometimes the journey is just HARD and the destination isn't worth the time it took to get there. Sometimes the journey is EASY and the destination STILL isn't worth it! The only constant is that there is always a journey and always a destination. I would LOVE for you to follow me on my journey and together we can find the destination. So, come on, we have to keep on keeping on!

One thought on “I Must be Crazy!

  1. I’m very interested in following your journey. Your thoughts on being 35 in a classroom with 20 somethings made me smile. I remember well having the same feeling when I was 32 in an acting for film class with mostly 20 year olds who seemed like children even then.

    I hope you’ll share more about yourself in the About You section.
