That it is never too late to do something you want to do. Go after your dreams and make what you want a reality. This summer saw me change jobs, while the circumstances were what I may have hoped for a misunderstanding sent me looking for a new job and I am thankful that it all happened. I was in the same position for 8 years an entry level position and I would have been there forever as I was never pushed to go after my dreams. Well my current job is probably not what I want to do for the rest of my life, I am enjoying it and enjoying very much the women I am working with they are all so kind and genuine. The environment is great and I don’t come to work stressed out I come to work get my work done and go home, any stress I have is usually money or schoolwork. I learned this summer that I can go after my dreams of being an elementary teacher, each day is a new day, you can’t convince everyone you are a good person all that matters is that you are, and that it will all work itself out. I will make it to the end of my life whenever that is just like everyone else will and it is all about the adventure I am on now.

Help raise awareness by wearing blue on November 15th and sharing this page with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter.
Together with the International Prader-Willi Syndrome Organization and the Dup15q Alliance, the Angelman Syndrome Foundation is raising awareness of the similarities between Angelman, Prader-Willi and Chromosome 15q Duplication syndromes. Join us on November 15th to help raise awareness and support for these three related disorders.
Why November 15th? The genetic complications within Angelman, Prader-Willi and Chromosome 15q Duplication syndromes all originate from the q11-q13 region of the 15th chromosome, which is written as: 15q11-q13, and directly correlates to November 15, 2013 written as a numerical date: 15.11.13—which only comes once every hundred years. Therefore, organizations that support individuals with these disorders have joined forces to create International 15q Day on November 15th.
Same Difference. Angelman, Prader-Willi and Chromosome 15q Duplication syndromes are different disorders and each is caused by different genetic variations within the q11-q13 region of the 15th chromosome. However, our three related disorders share overlapping symptoms, and each disorder is commonly misdiagnosed with another disorder due to lack of awareness.
The following graphics illustrate the genetic variations that cause Angelman, Prader-Willi and Chromosome 15q Duplication syndromes, and the symptoms that each disorder share.
How you can help. On November 15th, help raise awareness by sharing this page with your friends and family, colleagues and other connections—and wear blue!

My first adult pet, because we had so many dogs and cats growing up I don’t remember which one was first. Stubs was my first adult pet and he passed away a year ago it was really sad but he was awesome and you can read about him here. http://feistyfam.blogspot.com/2012/10/october-6th-im-thankful-for.html
