I’ve been absent from writing for quite a while now and each one of my posts seems to read more like an accuse or apology…. though I’m not sure exactly to whom, maybe myself, maybe you.
I’ve finally finished with my undergraduate degree, I never actually thought it would take me this long. When I was younger life to me was just linear and (I imagined) if I ever came to a roadblock life would just halt… there would be no option to tread a different path.
It still scares me that we only have one life. There’s too much to do, too many things to see, and too many types of people to be and meet. It’s always been frightening to me to just “pick one” of anything, maybe that’s why I am so utterly eclectic…. I’ve been so many different things (job-wise) , lived so many different places, and had so many different influences in this little life of mine. Now I’m looking for jobs in my area of study and it seems so surreal to take on but one point of view. Sometimes I think that people make the mistake of defining themselves by the type of work that they do… but what does that say? Is that the greatest translation of your soul, who you are in your bones and in your mind? Definitely not, unless you are one of the few who live & love what they do….
But this has become a rambling post once again.
I don’t know about resolutions or goals come 2017 but I have been writing things down all year long. Mostly I want to grow more of my own veggies, be more active in my community, and be a stronger voice as far as cooking for health goes. Oh, and look into graduate schools, I guess. I have a trip planned in June for Northern California and I cannot wait to put my arms around the redwoods that I’ve been missing so.
How are you? What are your dreams or goals for this new year that we’ll be walking into?
I’m all ears.
