We wrap up chapter four of my blog-to-book project: Life After High School: Secrets To A Successful Life By Those Who Have Had Twenty Years To Think About It (or) What They Didn’t Teach Us Gen Xers In High School with one more interview. Today we hear from Miranda Weller. If you missed the last post, click here, otherwise, you can start at the beginning here.

My Life In High School
Who were you in High School and how did you feel about it?
I was just me. I was extremely shy in high school but found a way to make friends in choir.
What did you think your life would become when you graduated?
I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was very overwhelmed by what came next.
My Life After High School
What happened in your life to you, for you, and by you in the last twenty years (how have you used your time and who have you become)?
I found myself by traveling the world. Then figured out how to turn that into a career. I know run a reservation center for European Travel with a staff of more than 20+. I’m happily married to my best friend. We are happy being the cool aunt and uncle to spoil all of the nieces and nephews.
My Life Lessons
What were the major life lessons and wisdom that you gained during your journey over the last 20 years?
Not to let fear stop me from trying.
Letter To My High School Self
If you could write your 18-year-old self (or however old you were when you graduated) a letter, and send it back in time, what would you say? What lessons, wisdom, encouragement, or warnings would you give yourself?
It gets better! Hang in there and keep pushing forward. You will end up in the place you are supposed to.
Next time, we start Chapter 5: Family Fun Day.
