I can't stop crying. It's been that way a few days. The last time I really remember crying this much was back at the end of the summer of 1999.
I was wrapping up my summer internship at The Journal, and they had offered me a full-time job. You'd think I would have been happy, but I couldn't stop crying.
It was the only real offer I had at the time, and I was flat broke. I knew I really had no other option, and that I was never going home to Kentucky again. I knew there was a very good chance it could mean the end for me and my boyfriend (now husband), who was still in Kentucky.
Most of all, I knew things were changing. They would never be the same again.
I feel like I'm at that moment again in my life, 11 years later. I'm standing at a crossroads.
Change is necessary. It's here.
I just don't know what to change or where to go.
