The past ten years for me have been filled with many successes, some failure, and a great deal of self discovery. While I am currently getting my career back on track, I cannot say I have completely failed at this aspect of my life. Yes, graduate school was not my cup of tea and I am currently looking for the "perfect" job. However, I do have successful years of experience and have a better understanding of where I want my career to go in the future. I knew I would remain active and healthy throughout my twenties, but if someone told me I would be going to my 10 year reunion as a marathon runner, I probably would have laughed at them. In high school, I was a cheerleader, long jumper, and pole vaulter who considered herself lucky to just barely pass the mile run in gym class.

Where will the next ten years take me? That question cannot be answered. I know where I hope it takes me but if I have learned anything in the last ten years, do not expect life to go as planned. As the words to our class song remind me

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right. I hope you had the time of your life."
