Best Career Blunder
In high school I was a nanny for 5 kids all under the age of 13. While most days were fun, it made me realize how challenging being a parent is -- especially when you need to take 5 people to 5 different places, all at the same time!
Leaving Texas to go to school in Indiana. Even though I'm an extrovert, starting school in a state 900 miles away from home where I didn't know a single person was harder than I first thought. Despite the many challenges, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
Don't be afraid to try new things! You will learn a lot about yourself if you step out of your comfort zone.
