I’ve haven’t blogged much lately, as I’ve been busy with school and work. This semester I am taking a Geography and History class. It has definitely been an adjustment being back in school. I’ve had to figure out how to get stuff done in the time I have.
For the first time since I’ve been in college, I have an end-goal. I know what I want to study and I know what I want to do when I graduate; be an Art teacher. I’m not sure if clarity came with maturity or just knowing myself better, but I don’t feel like that aimless 18 year old that I once was. I’m certainly not saying that I have everything figured out, but I know where I’m headed and what I am working towards.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately; how we can change and grow so much in a few short years. I thought of this quote from one of my favorite shows, “How I Met Your Mother”. Ted says, “Look we’ve all been searching for the five doppelgangers, right? But eventually, over time, we all become our own doppelgangers, you know, these completely different people who just happen to look like us.”
That’s how I feel sometimes. I look back to a couple years ago and think, “Who was that girl”? I don’t really know where I’m going with this except to say that I am happy that life forces us to change and grow and evolve. I am happy to be where I am now. Very happy.
