Skidder-mer-ink ee dink ee dink

skidder-mer-inky doo! Well, well, well. Where to begin?! Last you heard, I was working for the Puyallup Fair and waiting for classes to start again. Classes have been going for the past four weeks, and I'm on my last week of work for the fair.

How's that for an update? :)

I feel like I have direction for my life again. Current 5 year plan is as follows:
>Finish my AAS-T at CPTC this coming Spring. Woot!
>Continue Sign Language classes at Piece for Winter, Spring, & Summer quarters.
>Start the Interpreter Training Program at Seattle Central Community College in the Fall of 2010.
>Graduate from SCCC in 2012 (just shy of my 30th birthday, alright).
>Get Certified as a Registered Interpreter.
>Go on to study Christian Apologetics (possible getting a BA as one will be required of me to keep my Interpreter status).
>Begin to teach Apologetics to the Deaf Christian community to equip them to spread the Truth amongst themselves.
I really have no idea how all that is going to happen and it looks like quite a feat for someone who had no plans whatsoever of going on to 'higher' education, but none of that matters. I've been told that it's better to take action and maybe get it wrong than to take no action at all. So I'm taking action, because I think it's important.

If you dream of something worth doing and then simply go to work on it and don't think anything of personalities, or emotional conflicts, or of money, or of family distractions; it is amazing how quickly you get through those 5,000 steps.

PS. If you hear of anybody else who wants to bring Christian Apologetics to the Deaf, be sure to introduce me!


  1. Your plan sounds awesome and fits you really well!

    I, too, have been learning the important lesson of "God can fix your mistake if you step out and do what you think He's calling you to, but He can't do much if you're so afraid of being 'wrong' that you never take the first step." For someone who likes to be right, it's a hard lesson to learn. :)

  2. I think your plan sounds wonderful! God will direct you and if you continue to submit to Him each day, He will redirect you if need be. I'm excited to see how the Lord uses all of your talents: photography, sign language, love for Him, love for others, creativity, and the list goes on.
