This past weekend, mom and I went down to Florida to attend my big sister’s graduation. She finished her undergraduate degree in family, youth and community studies with a concentration in some kind of education. We clearly have a pattern of wordy majors in this family. lol I wanted to post pictures but I seem to have lost my camera cord. 😦 That sucks.
Anyway, congrats to all the grads – high school, college and grad school – and best wishes! I’ll be right back in Florida in a few weeks for my cousin’s graduation. I’m hoping gas prices go down in the meantime. My goodness…
So, I caught an episode of Oprah with the cast from Sex and the City (one of my favorite shows ever!) and they said something really profound: your twenties are a time to figure stuff out. There was a brief discussion after that about how people tend to think that folks have to ‘get it together’ during their twenties. If you think about it, only a few years before your twenties you were a teenager. No one expects teens to have everything figured out. Why, then, should twenty-somethings?
I think it was Charlotte who said her twenties were sad, her thirties were ok and her forties are a time to figure it all out. I like that…except the sad part! So I’m spending the next 5 years learning and doing and I’ll figure out the important stuff when I’m in my thirties. So to hell with the stress and worrying about what’s next. I’m just doing.
