So I have this habit of conducting a self-evaluation. Before it used to be at the end and beginning of the school year or at my birthday and of course New Years.
I haven’t set a new “self-evaluation” schedule for my “adult” life but I seem to be going through the process.
A few quick updates and I’ll continue.
Trip to Israel was great! I had a great time and Roee and his family took awesome care of me. I’m surprised how calm I was considering the lack of planning. I’m so used to going some where and having each day planned out before even landing. I could see how that works in my favor, but taking it a day at time is so much fun and non-stressful.
I will also be heading my own project at work. The client has worked with us before and has decided to continue doing work with us. I will be in charge of communicating with them and generating a plan, etc. Of course Joey will help guide me to keep it in-line with the Design Symphony image/tone.
My Social Circle in DC (and in life generally) is always a stage in life ahead of me (at least). If I was entering college, my friends were graduating college or getting engaged/married. I love this, because it gives me a chance to live through them a bit, and learn from their mistakes as I journey my way through the present “stage.” However, at times I forget that I am a stage behind, that I am only 22. That there are still other things I need to do and experience before I am thinking about the same things as them.
For the past few days I’ve been feeling completely overwhelmed. I feel that I am lacking in crucial areas of my life. Perhaps it is the lack of clarity that has me disgruntled. But isn’t the lack of clarity I am supposed to be enjoying. The process of solving the puzzle, of putting the pieces together, or better yet – having them fall into place.
Patience has been my biggest lesson this year. But I still find it difficult to wait and see what life and time will bring me.
For now, I’ll continue to cross things off my “to do” list and self-progress. But time is a tricky thing.
