About Me

What is a PRG?? PRG is something someone started calling me long ago - almost in another lifetime. It stands for "Puerto Rican Goddess." Most days lately, I just feel like a Pretty Regular Girl. So this blog will journal my days as a PRG. Some days that will mean my adventures as a Puerto Rican Goddess; other days I'll just be a Pretty Regular Girl. I hope you can find entertainment in both.

Something Nobody Knows About Me

So the blog challenge this week at 2 Peas is "Something nobody knows about me is..."

I like to think I'm a pretty mysterious gal, so coming up with just one thing nobody knows was kind of difficult. Not only that, but I had to think of one thing that was not widely known that I am still comfortable revealing here.

So the big secret is... I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I went back to school a year ago, ten years after I first entered college. The first time around, I studied video production and, while I was good at it, I got burned out quickly. It's a very competitive industry, and it's hard for a woman to make a name for herself. (Believe me, this is not an excuse. I hate to pull the "gender" card. It's simply the truth.)

This time around, I am majoring in Financial Services, and upon completion, will be ready to sit for the Certified Financial Planner (R) exam, which is a very big deal in the finance world. Truth is, while I love the work that I do now, working as an investment consultant for a privately held financial firm, I am terrified that I might be right back here in another ten years.

I guess it's a good thing I'm usually up for change! I would love to have a successful career in this field; I can only hope the industry embraces me, too!

Good for you going back to school. Even though I don't know you - I'm proud of you. I think it's wonderful. Oh - and your haircut is adorable.

I go through the same thoughts/worries in my mind. I went straight from high school to college to grad school. Although I don't regret it and believe education is never wasted...sometims I really want a change. But student loans hold me back....
Good luck on your exam! And in 10 years...maybe you'll find your next dream!
