… I was born.

My life can be divided in to so many different phases and journeys so that when I think about it, it makes me think of myself as a crazy person. And maybe I am… On the other hand I’ve learnt a lot from “travelling” through all these phases, so I think I’d rather be crazy if it means getting all these experiences.

 

My main journey at the moment has been going on for a while; I’d say I got the call about 12 years ago. I was about ten years old and became deaf on my right ear. The doctors told us there was nothing that they could do, and that no hearing aids would work for me since there was a problem with a nerve. I remember sitting in the examination room and as I looked around and listened to what he had to say I was amazed by all the knowledge he had. That’s when I thought for myself that I wanted to have that much knowledge, so that maybe I could help myself one day—I decided I was going to become a doctor one day.

 

I’m a very independent person, something of a lone wolf, and I don’t think I’ve ever thought that I need Allies for this journey. After I got the call it took me several years before I even told anyone about my goal. I was scared that they wouldn’t understand and get in the way of me doing what I wanted. And once I did tell them my mind was set and I ran my own race. Off course I’ve had friends and family there for me, but I’d rather say they’ve been Allies in my “sub-journeys”. I’ve had plenty of Ogres on my way so far, and these have divided my journey into “sub-journeys”. Thanks to my team mates during these small journeys I’ve been able to work through my problems and move on. It’s not like I forget about my Allies once one obstacle is taken care of, but I find that different Allies work best getting through different Ogres…

 

I would say I just got passed the Threshold Guardians, being the acceptance committee at the University I applied to, and I’m finally moving in to the Road of Trials. It feels as if I will finally be on my way as from August when I’ll start at my new school. Once I’ve started there, I will still have obstacles to overcome, but they will be minor, or at least it will feel that way since I’ve already gone so far and my motivation only gets greater as time passes. I can imagine being in this phase of my journey for several years while going through several more “sub-journeys”. Then when it’s time I have to get passed the Return Guardians, I imagine them being the last exams to test all the knowledge. Only when I’ve passed those exams and I’m standing there with my diploma I can say that I’ve completed my journey. I don’t know when it will be, but I know I’ve been on the road for a long time already and I know I’m ready to keep going for a long time in the future, because I know it’s all going to be worth it once I’m ready for the Homecoming.
