Description from KarenDe-Challenge Chick: This pick isn't so much an introduction of myself, as it is a snapshot of my mood and current path in life. After 10 long years in graduate school, I am leaving behind the teaching and the writing - without a PhD, and no job waiting! Yikes! I do get the blues sometimes, especially when people tell me that they envy me the freedom to choose what I will do next. I'm about to move back in with my parents at age 35, and I don't know what I want to be when I grow up!!! I do know that the time is here to come out of my turtle shell and I hope to come out on the other side a more confident woman. My cats, and my jewelry - inspired and named for them - will help me get there. And all of you other chicks out there have already been so helpful to me as you have shared your own stories. So I am Challenge Chick not just because I love a pick challenge, but also because right now, my whole life is a challenge - to get out of bed each day, to make beautiful art/jewelry, and to find a new path after so long stubbornly sticking to the wrong one for the sake of a broken dream.
