Last year I was starting my first term at Marylhurst as a music therapy major. This year I am returning to school as an English major. Last year I knew that I wanted to become a music therapist someday, but this year I don't know what I want to be "when I grow up."
ALSO, last year when I started fall term I was just barely recovering from a bout with the swine flu. That was not fun. This year my first day of school is tomorrow, and I'm quite healthy. That's definitely a positive difference.
Have you thought about "then vs. now" recently? What does your "then vs. now" sound like?
