Last year around this time I started my internship as an editor at In With Skin, a national beauty and lifestyle magazine. It was my first job after I graduated from ASU on the 26-year plan (following two consecutive semesters interning on Superstition Review, ASU’s online literary magazine). Now I work at a local publishing company learning a different side of the business and I write in my “free” time.  Although it took me over half of my life to figure out what I wanted to do “when I grew up,” I would still do it all over again if given the choice because I ended up on a rewarding, albeit different path. And I have a sneaking suspicion that’s a snapshot of Someday — when I’m wrapped in the embrace of dreams fulfilled — surveying the sometimes crazy, oftentimes tumultuous and always the anything-but-straight-and-narrow route which brought me there … better late than never.

Is there something you’re glad took place better late than never?
