Two years ago-ish I got engaged, moved to Oregon and started grad school. All in one swoop. All those changes marked a pretty clean transition into a new life chapter.
Unlike the chapter before it, this one was way less linear. I always expected myself to eventually move to a different state and to get a Masters, but I didn’t think too much of what life would look like once that got started. Life had been pretty linear up to that point. Why should it change?
Except life the past couple of years has been anything but linear. Projects that seemed exciting at the start fell apart and there were a lot of false starts and changes in plan. And that’s a great thing.
Life would be kinda boring if it was so linear… if we didn’t need to experiment and fail to learn things. The process itself is a pretty good thing.
