At everything I have tried to do professionally. I just can't stop my mind from examining everything that I see out of balance around me. I have made myself unemployable because I can't keep my mouth shut to corporate about stupid policies. After graduating cum laude w/a degree in Criminal Justice, I couldn't stomach my field after discovering that it wasn't about reform like we were told, it was a business model based on exploitation...have money and a good lawyer, do whatever you want...don't, well than sign this piece of paper and we'll limit your sentence.

It isn't that I'm incompetent, I just can't be part of something I don't believe in. FF to present day, my wife in all her wisdom has asked me to stop chasing shadows and rope the unicorn, i.e. pursue the one career that seems like a natural fit for me...writing. However, I wasn't really sure where to start and then I came across the Absolute Write Water Cooler.

I hope I haven't bored or alienated to many of you fellow journeyman/women on this board, but this is who I am and it has taken me 32 years to discover what I just summarized in two paragraphs. The power of the pen (or key board) is truly amazing. TY all for taking a minute to read my story and I hope to learn as much as I can from each of you.
