11. Would you rather live on the beach or in the mountains?
I’d live in the mountains, but I’d rather visit the beach.
My name is Heather. I spend most of my time cleaning (I’m almost certain a psychologist would say I have obsessive compulsive disorder, but I’ve decided to pretend that I’m normal.), cooking, and attempting to write/illustrate/publish a children’s book. I would love to tell you all that I am a former missionary to orphans in Ethiopia, that I’ve donated $50,000 to some worthy cause, that I am an accomplished writer, or that I’m particularly talented in some other area of my life; however, I’d be lying.
I hoped to obtain a bachelor’s degree in social work as my first step in the direction towards helping others; however, after multiple extreme circumstances, I decided to settle for an associate degree. By the way, there is nothing wrong with a two-year degree. In fact, I think a two-year degree or even a certificate is a better investment than a four-year degree, unless you have hopes of going to medical school, law school, etc. My problem is that I wish I would have known that I was wasting my time before I became so in debt with college.
My overall goal in life is serving God by helping as many people as I can in any way that I can. Of course, that isn’t going the way I hoped. Funny enough, helping others is not always as easy as it sounds. Still, I do what I can. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to sell my book and donate half of my earnings to a charity and pay my student loans with the other half. Until then, I’m here in my little apartment with my husband and we’re living a happy life.
