OK, truth time. I wrote that first post well over a month ago and I just now posted it. Man, am I victim of my own inner critic or what?! I literally said to myself WEEKS ago that my procrastinating was bullshit, and I kept procrastinating! So, here I am writing to say that as of this week, I’m done.
I thought about editing that last post to exclude the comments about graduation being a month-ish away, but that felt wrong. It felt like a cover up of my own lame continued procrastination and I didn’t want to do that. I want to be honest and say, yep, I talked a good talk there for a while and I still had nothing to show for it. But NOW that ends. I’m putting this together and I’m putting this out there despite the fact that I still feel remarkably unsure of myself. I have such dreams of grandeur for this site, and one day it will look like and be all that I’ve imagined, but for now it’s a work in progress that I’m OWNING right NOW.
This week has been hard. With the official completion of my Master's degree, I'm having one of those classic "...and now what?!" moments.
So, next step?
Ummm….keep applying to jobs? Save up some money? Get my ass on a plane?
That last one needs to happen. But exactly how? Should I get a "real" job and save up money for a bit and then hit the road (or air)? Or should I go ahead and jump on a plane to a low cost of living country and figure out a source of income on the fly? How about Peacecorps? Joining the Peacecorp has been an idea of mine for many many years, and I'm thinking that it may be an excellent way to see the world, be of service, and gain priceless life education. But it is a 27 month commitment. Is that what I want?
Time to do some soul searching and see what comes up.
