Reality check!

At 39 years old, I expect so much more from my life. What I mean is: I look at what I've accomplished and I feel a little depressed. Today, I was filling out an application for a part-time job and it, of course, asked for salary information. I had to dig in my files to find it all because I don't remember.

When I finally finished filling out all the numbers my face sank with disappointment. I'm too ashamed to tell you, but the amount of money I've made per year even when I was working full time is shameful. I have a college degree (a quite expensive one, I might add, that I'm still paying for) and I have nothing to show for it! I've served my country in the Air Force and I have nothing to show for it!

I guess it's unfortunate that I've measured a good portion of my success and accomplishments on the amount of money I've made, but I think a lot of people do that.

How sad.
