The class assignment is to write about my biggest challenge at school to date. At the age of 33, it’s the reinvention of myself and the thirst for a new career is the challenge. I still have to earn a living, pay bills, maintain a mode of transportation, pay for all my insurance, learn new technology for school that didn’t exist 10 years ago when I earned my first degree, buy school books & supplies, and balance project deadlines at work and being constantly creative on homework assignments. I knew from day one, when I decided to execute this adventure, it was going to be demanding and it wouldn’t be easy. The reality is much more rigorous, even merciless, than I imagined. So, what is my biggest challenge? Surviving the stress of making my current life work while going after a my dream of a new life on my own.
