The dreaded “F” word sneaks out of my mouth on occasion. I am really trying to stop those unfortunate outbursts. As a writer, I do love the versatility of that particular word because it can be used in a variety of ways: as a noun, a verb, an adjective, an adverb… the list goes on and on. I wrote a poem about that once because I took an online quiz and it said that “F” was my word.
Do you wish you could change something about your life?
There are times I’ve wished that I could change some things (big or small), but I don’t know that it would really change my “life”. I think that sometimes we would like to change things, but maybe those things happen for a reason. As an example, I was working in a job that I enjoyed, but then I was going to have to move to Bellevue to keep that job. I was in the process of finding a new apartment when my grandma got hit by a car and had to have major surgery. It ended up that I had to move in to take care of her once she was out of the hospital. I had to transfer out of the job, and it was difficult to have to make such a huge shift in life, to work, be a single mom, and take care of my grandma, but if I wouldn’t have transferred into the job that I ended up transferring into, I wouldn’t have met my husband. I wouldn’t have ended up in another horrible job that drained almost every last ounce of my humanity, and then I wouldn’t have been so motivated to go back to school.
