It’s a new year. Obviously. But with that comes…..well, I don’t know. This year could go in any direction for me, which is both exhilarating and nerve wracking. Now that I’ve graduated from college I don’t have the typical goals throughout the year, such as doing well in class and improving my chances at getting a good job following graduation. Still working on the latter.
I feel like I am in some sort of limbo now that I’m out of school but with no clear career path. I hope that by the end of the year things will become a bit clearer for me; whether that means I get a legitimate job with a good career outlook, or finally focus on graduate school. For real. Until now I’ve talked about going to grad school as sort of a last resort if there is nothing else out there for me. Now, however, I know I need to make a decision one way or another. Either I scrap that idea and focus everything I have into getting one of these “real” jobs I hear about, or I put everything (and probably more) into getting my Masters.
One way or another 2011 should be a very different year from any other I’ve had. It may be subtle, and for a few months it all may seem too much like ever other year, but by the end of the year things better have changed. Or I’ll just write this again next year and change the dates.
