Lately, I forget to breathe.

It has been an exceptionally fast-paced seven weeks and with the pieces finally falling into place – more so than they initially were – it seems that I will be the owner of a tutoring center sooner than anticipated.

The process is nowhere near the end, although at times I wish it were. Squaring away the major obstacles of the business has left me to focus on the minor details, which in turn have been the most complex.

I immediately envisioned the space filled with students learning and asking intriguing questions about their math problems or browsing through our bookshelves for their next mini-reading adventure, while other students focused on how to create a science project for their school fair.

The place was perfection – well, by my definition of perfection.
