Quest for Success at UCF

Almost a year ago David and I started this blog to share our adventures as we Hike Central FL and Beyond.  To some of you (especially Dave) I have been noticeably absent for the last couple months.  So I feel compelled to give you an explanation.

In addition to starting the blog in January, 2014, I also embarked upon a personal adventure of my own.  In an effort to cross off a bucket list item, I registered at the University of Central Florida (UCF). I became a ‘Knight’ and I am attempting to finish my bachelor’s degree in accounting.  (I know…a far stretch from nature.)  At this point I’m three semesters in and I can consistently find my car (that was a concern for me on day one). My grades have been fairly good.

My latest semester ended last month and it was the worst of my entire academic career.  So as I struggled and struggled, I became less and less available to work with David.  Being the trooper that he is, he carried on without me.  Thank you for understanding Dave!

Now being the photographer that I am, I would like to share with you a little gallery of my last 12 months at the second largest university in the nation.

UCF has been one of the most challenging and rewarding adventures of my life.  So from time to time I will update you on my progress.  Our next post will be back to hiking and showing off the beauty of Central Florida and Beyond.

Until then…Charge on!
