I envy people who just know what they were born to do and therefore put their whole being into that thing. Whether it’s being a doctor, singer, entertainer, lawyer, librarian. Whatever. They can say they’ve always known. They started organizing books by the dewey decimal system when they were three. That has to be such a great feeling, just knowing what you’re called to do.
I wish I was Simba, before he went to the elephant graveyard. I think that’s when his worldview changed. I wanna be ignorant Simba, the one that was promised everything that the light touches.
Post college questions I wasn’t prepared to answer:
- Are you going back to school? What will you study if you do?
- Why aren’t you married yet? Don’t you wanna be married? Just get married already!
- Are your current financial decisions positively or negatively affecting your future?
- Is it worth it to get your cat neutered? Why did you get a cat?
- Should you be actively pursuing other professional things during your time off work? If you don’t, are you wasting away your potential?
- Do you need a car? Or can you survive without one? What’s too high of a car payment? Should you take on a car payment when you have other debts to worry about?
- Why is your sister calling at 1 am? Oh god, has something happened? You’re independent, but you still need family!
- Why did you take a job so far away from family? What were you thinking?
- How does one build a support/social system out of scratch? Should one even bother?
- Will everything quiet down eventually? Will all my thoughts join together into one, cohesive plan? Am I thinking too much?!
Have a great day guys!
