Sorry for the lack of dedication to the blog lately; I've been pondering a job change and what job fulfillment means--some very mid-20s questions that trouble so many of us. I've started looking for new positions that might be more financially beneficial at this point, but do not necessarily contribute to my career path. We'll see how things turn out.
With the many changes over the past weekend (the death of Cory Monteith, the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's killer...) I've also reflected on the ephemeral nature of life. Having lost a close friend a few years ago, this idea often comes to the forefront of my mind and makes me live a little distantly from the world for sometimes days at a time. I recognize this dulled sensation and hate feeling it, but also have a challenging time escaping it. In these moments, keeping in touch with the little things (cuddling my dog, the perfection of cold ice cream on a hot day) help bring me back to a sense of normalcy. I hope these things keep you in touch with some semblance of "normal" for you as well.
