November Schmovember

An ongoing list of my November musings
  1. The future
    The future is something which has been a big part of the conversations I've had this month. Maybe it's a precursor for the end of my university days- who knows? It has been a consistent topic at hand, and I've put a fair amount of thought into it- just not enough. (Hopefully) this May would be the first time that I wouldn't be looking forward to a school year in the fall! I'm still not ready to come to terms with it, and I I don't think I'm even close to being ready. It's awfully scary.
  2. Love and Companionship
    With talks of the future, comes the dreaded topic of *love* and finding a partner. This has also been a recurring topic this month. I've begun to think about what I want in say- 5 years. All I can tell you is that I definitely want a dog! Jokes aside, I think I've reached a point where I'm ready to pinpoint what I want and not waste my time on lacklustre efforts. Our time is finite and so are our efforts- I'm old enough to make it count.
  3. The future pt. 2: Ambition
    I think the more we learn, the more our world expands and the harder it becomes to know what we are truly passionate about. I've grown so much both personally and intellectually; I've expanded my horizons in the creative realm, sure. But I've come to realise that I'm extremely passionate about policy administration, technology, and ethics. It's a little bittersweet, but I don't see myself as someone who writes for a living- which is strange because that's what I thought I'd always do.
