1 minute writer - TURNING POINT

Write about how you noticeably changed after a particular turning point in your life.

My brief time at the University of Chicago changed me forever. I was incredibly happy there. It's hard to explain exactly what happened, except that I learned that learning is an ongoing process for all of one's life. Later, after getting married and having children, I finished up my undergraduate work and eventually completed graduate school in Texas, but those experiences paled next to the indelible impressions I'd experienced at the U of C. I always say that although my degrees are from Texas, I was educated at the University of Chicago.

I've always noticed while reading your journal that Chicago has been such a pivotal place for you. Your love for it always comes through.
