I recently discovered my calling in life. This elusive mystery had haunted me for quite a while, beginning in my teen years and flooding full force into adulthood. Each step that I took on the path away from higher education weighed heavier on my soul, as if the encumbering loads of purposelessness unbalanced my mental stability. One day, however, I finally glimpsed the light at the end of the tunnel. As trivial as it may seem, one of my greatest passions is grammatical editing. Over the years, I have received small jobs editing for businesses, friends and family. Perhaps I should have recognized this before, but editing for a living is undeniably my dream job. Three years ago, my path steered me to the tiny European country of Croatia, where I currently reside. I do not believe in harboring regrets and I am thoroughly convinced that everything happens for a reason, so now is as good a time as ever to pursue my goals! I plan to become a certified freelance copy editor and use my skills to transform the writing of acquired clients. I will work online in order to assist anyone in the world who may discover my services. My dream is about to become a reality and I look forward to using this neglected aspiration to inspire and benefit others.
