A Transitory Life

with 2 comments

Since completing college in the spring of 2008, both years have been completely different in regards to where I lived, who I lived with/around, and what I was doing. Now, with the news that I will be getting to go to Graduate School in the fall and that I will be a Graduate Teaching Assistant, my life is again about to change.

The year after my bachelor’s degree was awarded was spent in Nashville, Tn. Here I worked at a Kroger with some of the most interesting people that I can ever say I have worked with. It was a fun job, and life in general was pretty care-free. I lived with several of my roommates from college, and we were all pretty much degenerates for the majority of the time that we lived there.

The past year 2009-2010 (and given, I’m talking in terms of school years because that’s how my life has been tailored), I have been teaching and tutoring at my Alma Mater. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have gotten to reconnect with so many people, and they have become my close friends. We have had many fun and exciting times. From game nights to walks about the town or talks about the chores that their household will perform, we have created memories that I will chuckle about for years to come.

Now, however, I am about to embark on my third completely different journey in as many years, I am about to head off to graduate school. I don’t know what it holds for me. I know that if I can keep my wits about me that I will succeed because I know that it will not be entirely easy…is there anything in life that’s good that is easy? If all goes well, in a couple of years, I should have a Masters degree in some English field (still haven’t quite pegged down what I want yet).

So, yeah, that’s just a brief overview of what’s going on with me. My life seems in a constant state of flux, but as one really annoying person from my past said to me “Blessed are the Flexible for they shall not break.” I will continue to be flexible. Change is usually good. I mean after all isn’t variety the spice of life?
