Cross Roads...

I am reaching a point where I really need to decide what I want out of my career. I spent 2005 - 2008 as a Technical Business Analyst, I worked as a liaison between software development and the Business. I loved that Job. I worked from home, traveled, and made great money. Then I did "marketing".. which was really getting paid to party for a few months, and flirt with prospective clients. Unfortunately, while that sounds like the perfect job, I needed mental stimulation. I missed putting in 15 hour days to implement a new software then seeing my clients productivity go up through the use of technology. I took the job at Apollo to finish my degree in Information Systems. Right now, I am managing a team of Sr. Systems Analysts. But, pretty much, I do statistical analysis and predictive modeling all day. Not my thing! As I am in the business world, I am learning what I want out of my dream job, and as I get discouraged here, I think I want to just stay home and be a mom. When I am happy and thriving in a position I am driven and unstoppable. Where I am today, I feel like I want to quit and never work again. My goal job for the past 5 years has been to be a CIO of a cutting edge technology company. While I think I am capable and it is attainable after half a decade in the industry,..
I am starting to wonder if I should be putting all my effort towards a goal that leaves me away from my future family and working for the "man" for the rest of my life. I think that getting my degree in technology is the smartest thing I can do because it is the most sustainable industry. Maybe I just need to focus my goal to more of a consultant type position rather that executive level. I am 24 years old, as I always say, I have one more year to be a mess, and then It's time to grow up. As I was driving home yesterday, I was thinking about the fact that my birthday is in 4 months and I think I started to freak out.

OH OH OH!! This is funny.... So as I'm having this "What shall I do with my life crisis" on my drive home, I decide that maybe a Burnett Misty would be more "mature" and "together". So, I drive to CVS buy hair dye and literally dye my hair brown. I am all excited thinking wow.. this is it! I solved all my problems with a $10.00 Box of hair dye. I get out of the shower, blow dry my hair.... ITS STILL PLATINUM BLONDE!!! HAHA. The universe likes me blonde with big boobs... maybe my true calling is a dancer. My name is Misty...?? ..NOOTTTTT
