My Life On Cruise Control - Part Deux

I made another discovery. For the past couple of years my life has been stuck somewhere between neutral and first gear. Despite the fact that there may have been external contributing factors, I realize that the only way to become unstuck was to take responsibility for myself. So I did. I'm back at school part time, working on a post-graduate writing certificate. I'm working my way up to second or maybe even third gear. My ultimate goal is to reach a gear that is high enough to allow me to engage the cruise control (believe me, it will make me happy).
Milestones have to be met I know; stumbling may occur - but ultimately, I need to do it.

P.S. I will mos def keep a record of my progress and post the results...

My Life On Cruise Control - Part One

I made an incredible discovery this past Friday. On my drive down to Michigan, I finally used the cruise control for my car. What a revelation! I felt like I was playing a video game. A four - hour drive seemed to take so much less time and when I reached my destination and exited the car, I could actually walk! No leg stiffness at all. I believe this incredible invention and my subsequent use will allow me to enjoy road trips for a long, long time.
I felt a little like Vince Vaughn's character in "The Watch" and my favourite scene with the Russian dolls: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x6_94sZYOc .
