Changing Seasons17 Apr 2019
The first day of spring came almost 3 weeks ago now, but today really seemed like the day winter left for good. I just had my wisdom teeth removed, and I’ve had some time alone with my thoughts to really think about all that’s happened in the last few years.
I started this blog almost 4 years ago now as a sophomore (seriously, why don’t Canadians use this terminology?) studying medical sciences. Back then, I wanted to go to medical school and be a doctor, but it wasn’t really the burning passion that my peers had. It was really just the most obvious path, in my head.
4 years later, I still don’t know what I want to do. I applied to medical school several times now, and whether that will work out in the future is still a mystery. I’m almost done my Master’s in Engineering (!?), and I don’t know if I want to go back to school or not. I mean, I’m basically graduating from grade 17 – 17 years of going to class, having my life completely structured around education.
It’s not all that bad though, because I love learning. There are still so many things I want to learn that I haven’t gotten around to, but I think I’m okay with not returning to school next year. I’m excited to potentially find a job and start making a living. Yeah, your life is still centred around this social construct where you have to go and work 8 hours a day or something. But it’ll be nice to have the rest of the time to really enjoy my life and not worry about the next exam or application.
What is certain is that I will be blogging more (holding myself accountable here). The next few months will be me finishing an internship for my Master’s, and I guess I’ll figure out everything after that as I go. I’m still going to primarily keep this space education/tech based, but I’m going to try and share more personal things too. I have changed in the last 4 years, and I have grown, and I feel that a lot of that personal growth deserves to be described, if only for my sake.
