I graduated high school in 2004. By many calculations, I should be a second year PhD student. By other calculations, I should have a career, a house, a...family. I should have a degree right now, and I should be an educated person joining the fight for gay rights or the team to re-elect President Obama; an adjunct professor of English, Education, Whatever; or a powerful published author.
Instead, I am me: a frequently confused individual who just accepted something about himself.
I am a w a n d e r e r.
I met with a professor, and mentor, yesterday. He worked with me for almost an hour to begin to figure out paths I can take after community college that will allow me to be what I want to be: an educator, a public speaker, a writer, an artist, ETC.
If actions speak louder than words, then those people in my life are right after all - I am doing some amazing things. As I build this blog back up, I will share with you some of those things, which will explain a bit about my sudden departure from the blogosphere in May.
Thank you for returning to Jon's Life, or as Anna put it, thank you for letting me waltz right back into your lives. :D
