When I bought my first car that wasn't bought 2nd hand from my parents!! biggrin

Oh, and when I first started teaching I paid for my mom's trip to join me as a chaperone - it was odd being in charge when my mom was there but she was so awesome and supportive!


Great question!

I have been called very successful in life: I've studied abroad a number of times, I got my college degree, I got a federal career, I bought a car with flat cash, I paid off my student loans, and I bought my own home- all before the age of 25.

But my most successful moments have been a few:
1) when I climbed up Mount Pinkuylluna in Ollantaytambo, Peru;
2) when I got to the top of Machu Picchu and looked not at the ruins, but far into the distance of the Andes, at the jagged rocks and misty jungle;
3) When I went hiking in the Dolly Sods Wilderness area for 20 miles, living out of my backpack, seeing bears and nearly falling down cliffs, and even finding live munitions from WWII (it was a testing site) it was very challenging;
4) When I went out of my comfort zone and flew to CA to be lifeguard at Disneyland. I had never thought of being in the medical field, I felt so insecure at the thought of being a LIFEGUARD ("aren't they supposed to be thin?") and I packed my bags and flew out to the other side of the country in only 1 week from deciding to accept the job, while I was still in college. That took some guts and I am so glad I did it :)))

These are all instances where I pushed myself past my limits, through my comfort zone, and into wild territory I never would have normally considered. That's my achievement.

One of them was raising two boys....and getting through their teenhood! Another which comes to mind was taking care of my Mom & Dad before they passed away 15 months apart. (this was tough)

I'm the opposite of you. I've started to get pretty mad when I'm asked for an ID because I don't feel like I'm being treated as an adult! boggled


My proudest "grown up" achievement is being an aunt and godmother. biggrin

Margaret believe it or not I was ID'd last spring when out with friends. I was quite flattered to be honest because of my age... The perspective on being ID'd changes from time to time....

My proudest momets were

1. when I got my master's degree - the ceremony and getting the diploma made me feel really proud
2. when I bought a car on my own last fall after my husband left and without him or my parents
3. this past April when I finally got Baptized and was confirmed in the Catholic Church


to come:

4. when my ninth grader and fourth grader take first communion in the spring
