My 41st Birthday and My Quest

I am not the hero of my own story. At least that is the way it feels.

I am turning 41 today and don't know what to do with my life. I graduated 1.5 years ago with a graduate degree in English Literature. Unfortunately, you might have heard that the economy is rather bad; I can tell you that the job market certainly reflects that fact.

I looked for work for seven months and finally found a job. It is not in my field. It is not a particularly good job. However, it does earn me an income, for which I am grateful (especially since my husband has lost his job). I will have worked there for one year next week. I have been looking for something better this whole year and haven't had one interview.

I feel like I don't know what to do with my life. I have so much I want to do. I am using this blog as a way to kick start a change.

Each month I will choose a theme and try to improve myself. I will seek to accomplish my goals and make something of my life before my 42nd birthday.

My first month's theme: "Get it done by getting it started"

I will commit to writing in this blog every Tues and Thurs.
I will make progress on three projects that have been sitting on my to do list.
I will make a plan of attack for figuring out my life.

My birthday present to myself? An attempt to figure out my life before my next birthday.
