The change of circumstances. My aim in life was to work and have all my goals fulfilled. It took me three years to graduate from the college I was at being at the top of my class. During the Friday nights, I did not go out partying like most of the college students do but rather, I would stay in my room reading so that I would have the best grade in the next weeks exams. I found out that I could write while still young and ever since I used to write and by the time I completed my elementary I had filled up a cardboard box.
When I had completed my college studies I got a job that involved technical writing at a firm in my hometown. It was fulfilling, and the pay was good, but it was still not my dream job. It was exhaustive doing the job, and at times I even had the carpal tunnel syndrome. When I was done with my dinner, I could not resist from doing the writing as I wanted to become of the authors of a top-selling American novel. I have always wanted to win a Pulitzer and an Oscar through my creative writings.
Before I was done with working on my novel, our daughter was born when I was 28 years old and later we had our son. The hard work that I directed towards my career was now shifted to bringing up my kids in the best way. I, therefore, quit my job after I had my firstborn so that I could stay at home with her. I contacted my bosses and told them I could not continue with the job. The projects that I was looking forward to completing after I was through with my maternal leave were now handed over to someone else.
Sometimes when I had the kids asleep, I would pick up my computer to try and add up some content to my novel. I would have some time at the coffee shop while my parents, siblings, friends or my husband watched over the kids. It was not easy and I used to call now and then to know about the progress of my kids.
Through this site, I have been able to tell my story, and whatever decision I made makes me feel happy. If a chance presents itself where I will be required to get my computer, then I will not be hesitant to do so. A day will come I will be in a position to have my dreams come true.
