So 6 months ago I quit a job I hated, took a little bit of money and whole lot of guts to the DMV where I knew nobody and had no family. Didn't have a job lined up either.

What happened ?

6 months later I'm working at the Red Cross downtown and living my dream and seeing and experiencing things I'd only seen in books.

I'm glad I made the leap.

It did so happen. Everybody told me I'd fail and be homeless.......man, what do people know? You never know what you can accomplish til you TRY!!!!

Hope this encourages somebody to just say screw it and GO for your dreams.....

The DC area is probably the best area to do this. Congrats to you.
