I also know the fact that I am still talking about what is expected of me at this age just shows I cannot be almost 40, I must still be 24. Even though my babysitters keep insisting on comparing me to their own mothers, which makes me want to slap them square in the face. Not really. Yes, really.
Either way, I apparently took a road, less traveled or not, I do not know, but it has certainly made all the difference.
