9. I went back to school after being a stay at home mom when I was 48 years old

I didn't have a clue about how to use computers, but I realized if I was ever going to get a good job I would have to learn (after my divorce). I went back to school nervously but found I loved using computers. I learned all the basic word and excel stuff for jobs, but as an artist I was curious about electronic art and I got pretty good in Photoshop and learned enough html code that I manage a website for a company that does classical concert music series. All self-taught just because I fell in love with computers.

My job now in UC Berkeley is almost all done on a computer and it's pretty secure for now at least.
