So, I haven’t even logged in in a few months. I actually just checked and my last post was September 25, 2013. A lot has happened since then.
It’s weird to think about all of it. I have a job now. I’m a real adult now with real responsibilities. I apply what I’ve learned in my college education to my real job, and the real world is my classroom every day. I’m responsible for making decisions that affect a business.
It’s been hard. Man, has it been hard. I feel like life happens at warped speed. I’ll be in a meeting on a Friday and they’ll ask me about something that happened that past Monday and I can’t even remember. Unless I write it down, I don’t remember because my brain is infiltrated with information, constantly.
I’ve actually been at my job for 6 months. Well, 6 months in one week to be precise. It’s been comparable to the 5 stages of grief.
I’ve experienced a roller coaster of happiness, sadness, anger, frustration. I’ve almost quit several times, for numerous reasons. Honestly, there are a lot of reasons why I should just quit and find a new job. But, the right thing to do is stay.
That’s what I meant when I said it’s been hard. There’s this weird part about growing up where you’re the one who has to make decisions. There are consequences to every action and risks to be taken. There are mistakes to be made and rewards to be had.
But if there’s one thing that everyone mustn’t forget to do, it’s to remember that you’re human. Remember that everyone makes mistakes… and never compare your mistakes to other people’s, by the way. Remember that we’re all on this earth for a brief period of time, so don’t lose sight of the things that really matter the most. And remember to trust your gut. Never compromise that voice inside your heart for anything, ever.
