I guess that I'd have to say that I'm in a transition mode now and may be for a while. After more than 20 years in the restaurant business and numerous attempts to get out of it I may have found what I'm looking for. I'm at the beginning of the path towards a nursing degree/career (more about that in the next section).
I've moved around a good bit. Lived in Vail, Colorado for a winter 20 years ago (ugh, I swear it doesn't seem that long ago) and Austin, Texas from 1995 to 2000. Not to mention a few different places here in Maryland. I wasn't born here in Baltimore but we moved her literally on my first birthday and for all its rough edges I really do like the city...hmmm, maybe it's because of its rough edges that I like it.
I used to be really into running and triathlons and have some accomplishments that I am very pround of, I was never a speed demon but I got to run in some exciting events. I still run casually (read: when I feel like it and the weather is nice) and ride my bike a lot.
So on Match.com (yep, I'm on there too) they allow you to search with in a 5 mile radius and that's sort of my comfort range. Here on OKC the minimum is 25 miles. For a number of reasons I'd like to date someone close to me. Basically what I'm saying is that if you don't live within the city limits I'm not sure that there would be much potential for a relationship. I'm not sure how I feel about that as I very well could be ignoring a potentially good match but for now that seems like how I'm going to have to play it.
I think of myself as pretty high on the self-awareness scale and also as a constant work in progress. I'd say I'm pretty happy with my life but that doesn't mean that I shouldn't keep looking at it and keep trying to improve it.
