Toward or Towards?

I am a Lover of Language, a Word Wrangler a Storyteller. A Grammar-tician I am not. I am always confused if it’s Toward or Towards? I’ve been told I “comma splice” but I don’t really know what that means. I want to know.
I have decided that I’m going to live a long time. I have many goals I’ve set for myself and I’m discovering that they are coming to pass whether I plan for it or not. It’s curious really. I made a set of goals for myself when I was around twelve, I revamped them around age 20 and they go like this:
Get married in the temple (check)
Go on a mission (check)
Go to BYU (check)
Become a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant (check—yes, that’s really there!)
Now here are the ones that will make me an old lady…
Graduate from BYU
Become a teacher (now it’s a college teaching job I’m going after, at the time I was thinking High School—bleck!)
So, you see, I have time to move toward my goals, or is it towards? Because I’m going to grow very old and be that 90-year-old great grandma walking across the stage the BYU graduation in 2050! Oh wait, 2055! Ha ha!
You envy me, I know it.
