For my career class we were supposed to draw up a timeline of significant events and our plan for the future. I wrote mine up in about 10 minutes…so I haven’t completely honed it yet. It’s a work in progress. But here’s what I have (or rather, what I turned in).


2003 – Began third year of SPU. Pursued writing more and improved. Met new people and made more connections for possible job opportunities.

2004 – Finishing third year of SPU. Applied for editor position at Falcon again…fingers crossed. Met some people from Seattle Times and made more friends.

2005 – Work as intern at ANG Newspapers in California during summer. Go back to SPU and work as news editor for The Falcon.

2006 – Graduate from SPU and take three year internship with Seattle Times.

2007 – Meet man of my dreams (Godly man and world’s finest neurosurgeon of course) and get married. Continue job as writer and reporter for Seattle Times.

2008 – Adopt golden retriever puppy and settle in a nice house in Seattle, close to office. Continue to pursue big stories and apply for editor position.

2009 – Switch sections from news to travel. Travel and write a few freelance articles on the side, exploring other news offices around the country. See the world.

2010 – Have kids! Work as news editor with new experiences of travel under belt.

2015 – Start working on authoring my first book. Continue as news editor and start advice column under pseudo name: Lucinda Casual or Iris (a flower meaning woman of integrity and wisdom, good friend.)

2020 – Famous with advise column and captivating news stories. Win Pulitzer prize. Thank Lord unceasingly.

2025 – Write more books on many subjects.

2030 – Settle down and teach what I’ve learned to coming generations of writers.

So, like I said…it’s in the works. I’m thinking that Seattle can be interchangeable with Bay Area. I could always settle down somewhere in Northern California and work for a good paper there…like The Times or something. I’m still torn about where I want to settle because I’ve come to love Seattle, but my heart remains in the Bay Area.
