i have a timeline for my life. or should i say i did. i mean, it's not like i wrote it down or anything (graduate highschool at seventeen, finish my undergrad in proper time, enter grad school at twenty-one years of age, get married by twenty-six...)
and yet i might as well have wrote it down because that's how clear the timeline was in my head. my life has always been very "on track." i finished all my schooling in the appropriate amount of time, at the average age and even got married before i was a certain age - which is what i always imagined.
except i never thought past now. i had this idea that after i was done my education i would...find the perfect career and...be married.
what is that?? that's nothing - it's not a life, or a plan or anything really. and in many ways it's a myth. i didn't find the perfect job and i did get married but after the "getting" married part the verb is over and now i have to figure out - what's next?
because it's not babies. not yet anyways!
for now i'm aiming to make my life into something that makes me happy. i want to be doing things i love and not feeling like i'm rushing to meet the next deadline.
do you have a timeline? even subconsciously?
