9. Any good stories about it or advice for others following?
Melinda, you know I hate typing all this shit :) Edit whatever you want from what I wrote. I can't think of a story. I guess, when you're at a place that's right for you, you feel right, no matter how difficult it is. I don't recommend it, unless you're 100% convinced that's what you gonna do. There are a lot of disappointments along the way, so anyway, I hope to see you soon.
