Before completing my degree in Sociology from the University of Arizona, I floundered around in film colorization, animation, photographic processing, computer training sales, property leasing, mental healthcare and tutoring. After completing my degree, Summa Cum Laude, I floundered around in graduate school, computer programming, visual art, and ceramics. I am currently floundering around in writing. Though I envy people who have had a well-defined and focused career arc, I really prefer to flounder.
