Blog Chain--My Best Accomplishment Ever

It's blog chain time!

This round's question is brought to me by Michelle H. She wants to know the following:

This is the month in creating writing goals and making big accomplishments. What is your greatest accomplishment--in writing, your life or perhaps something incidental that had a big effect on you?


I've been very lucky in my short life. Despite my many injuries (no, I am not an athlete, which makes said injuries even more embarrassing...), I'm happy with where I am right now. Of course, that hasn't always been the case. But I know why I'm finally okay with everything I've done in the past.

I've found who I really am.

Yes, I've graduated with honors my whole academic life. Yes, I fulfilled a fantasy and flipped peer pressure the middle finger when I went to Europe at sixteen, leaving behind a lot of confused friends.  Yes, I got accepted into Psych grad school and Law school at the same time. Yes, I've finished a novel. Four, to be exact.

But my greatest accomplishment is knowing myself. 

There's still a lot left to learn, to travel, to write,  to dream. 

The only difference is that now I know I can do it all, and how happy it'll make me to watch it happen.


Make sure you check out Abby's post, and stay tuned for Sandra's post tomorrow!

Now tell me: what's your greatest achievement?  


  1. Awesome accomplishments! You know exactly where you are in life and where you're going.

  2. That's a subtle, but great accomplishment! Not many people can claim that knowledge.

  3. Wow, I think this is the biggest accomplishment I've read yet!

  4. Four novels? HOLY FREAKIN' COW! No wonder I felt the need to give you a badge :)

  5. Thanks, everyone!! It took me a while, but I got there.

    *wipes sweat from brow*

    And Eric, !!!! You are TOO nice!

  6. So many great adventures and you still have a focus on the goals ahead. This post is inspirational. Thank you! :)

    And getting into psych and law school is a BIG deal. Woot for your mad academic skillz!
