After thirty years in Law Enforcement, I retired two years ago. I’ve taken advantage of my free time to pursue a desire I’ve had for a long time–getting a college degree. I received my Associates of Arts Degree in Applied Science, Multimedia/Web Design in December 2013. I had an instructor ask me the other day what field I planned on going into when I graduated and I told him “nothing!, I’m retired.” He laughed and said “So you are just doing this for fun?” And yes, it was fun, but the last semester especially with carrying fifteen credit hours, made it a lot of work.
Now I spend my time mostly doing what I enjoy. I have had to take a part time job due to the high cost of medical insurance, but I’ve limited myself to working less than twenty hours a week. I enjoy beading and photography and Photoshop and blogging. Couple these pursuits with my love of the great outdoors, my family and my grandkids, I’m a pretty busy lady and loving every minute of it!
