Summer has come and passed...
No, no no, I'm not really opening with a Green Day lyric. But I think I got my point across.
Summer really is over. Which means back to school for a lot of people. However, for the first time in my life, September has come and I'm not going back. I don't have to do any readings, I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on textbooks I'm going to use only twice and I don't have to plan my schedule around the countless hours of homework I'm going to get. For the first time in my life, I feel like a true adult going out into the real world.
Which by the way, exciting as it is, is also kinda scary.
In a sense, I feel as though the safety net is gone. I always had school to fall back on to make me feel like I was bettering myself. I hate to say it, but I feel a little stagnant. That's not to say I don't feel like I'm getting better at what I do and furthering my career, I have gotten a couple of paid contracts and a decent amount of work experience since I graduated, but I suppose I just don't feel like I'm doing it quick enough. I see a few of my classmates already finding steady work. Work that they like doing, work in the film industry.
I know I shouldn't feel this way because people work at different paces. I know that if I keep working hard and staying patient but persistent that my dream job will come my way.
Anyways, thanks for listening to me think out loud. See you next time on this blog of mine.
