I am going through a sort of metamorphosis. A quarter life crisis, as some people refer to it as.
I have now been in the workforce for a bit, been on my own, seen how things, to an extent, actaully work.
And I gotta say, it's not that great. We go through college with high hopes and expectations that once we hit that graduation date
all things will be better. We will get a great job, make a difference, rise quickly, and be able to afford things beyond our wildest dreams.
Only part of assessment is true. I Remember that my brother once jokingly told me as I was close to graduation
'you should go for a masters, stay in school as long as you can. The working world sucks' and when I look back on my formative days,
I recall the Rodney Dangerfield quote at the end of 'Back To School'
"...To all you graduates, as you go out into the world, my advice to you is...Don't Go! It's rough out there. Move back with your parents! let them worry about it!"
While I do not want to move back home, I understand the sentiment. I have somehow found myself fallen into a career rut straight out the gate,
and while I do ruminate and become depressed by it from time to time, I can not let myself fall into complacentcy or stop pushing myself because the benefits are nice.
Necessity is the mother of invetion, and it's time I reinvent myself.
So that is what I am going to work towards, and as part of the process, I am going to be writing more long form posts like this. As way for me to both analyze
my progress and share the journey with my friends and family. I have numerous plans working currently, that should hopefully bear fruit in the next few months.
And trust that I will be more specific in furture posts than this, admittedly cryptic one.
But it's never a good idea to announce something without the product at least half-baked, and I'd say the ingredients are still coming together for this pie.
