When I started UT in 2007, I thought I had life all figured out. I had picked the right major, the right career choice, I was on the straight path to success. But as life would have it, instead of going down that straight path, I went around a few curves, up some mountains, down into some valleys, and more. But it was through this journey that I learned (and am learning) who I am. There's a blessing in having to take the scenic route: your purpose & destiny are somewhere along that winding path.
