I never had it all figured out. After high school I enlisted in the U.S. Army as a 13B (field artillery). Being afraid of heights, I thought it was a good idea to also sign up for airborne school. After a few years in the Army and over 30 jumps I went to college and got my degree. I found a job in pharmaceutical development and enjoy the work but always thought there was something missing. Maybe it was a lack of an advanced degree when working along side people with medical and doctoral credentials. So, I decided to try pharmacy school
A Significant Moment
After a failed attempt at pharmacy school, I have no idea what to do. All the work, preparation, opportunity costs, and sacrifices I made, as an older student, to get to that point felt like a waste of time. Failing at this level put me in a dark place, I thought about it for a long time and it haunted me.
After wallowing in self-pity, I felt adrift and needed to do a serious and honest self-evaluation. I have all these new opportunities but I don’t know what to do with my life or where my life new life path will lead.
So I decided to do this is an outlet for self-improvement and growth. A tabula rasa moment in a search of what I can learn from failure and use it as a path to self-improvement.
I’m hoping this site will be an example to others who failed out of professional school and feel like they have no hope. I’ll post topics around how I’m getting my life together plus other interesting things I come across.
So here I am, on a pale blue dot, trying to figure things out.
