This last school year has been remarkable, not only for all that has been accomplished and changed, but also for how blinded I’ve been by everything going on. I have continuously been focused on the next big milestone, just trying to get through to that time, at which hopefully I will be able to consider the future again. Oh, I’ve made a few plans; I’ve started saving for a vacation to Seattle (for some reason, I was originally thinking it was in Portland >_> Which might cause issues…) in August of 2009, and I got this website re-done… but by and large, I’ve been focused on the next hurdle to jump, the next brick wall to knock down.
And now… there are no more walls. My vision is stretching to the horizon (which, on a planet the size of earth when on land, is about 3 miles; not all that impressive, when you think about it), and I’m beginning to consider future possibilities. My internship at First & Calvary is over. As I sat down to begin writing this morning, I was trying to figure out how to proportion my time to try and get as much done as I’d like to, but the truth is that I don’t have to do that anymore. Not right now, anyways, because my time is massively freed up and more flexible. I’ll have time to write every day now, and it only takes an hour to write four blog entries, so I can work on whatever I want and remain confident that I can keep up with my writing committments.
The subject of my professional career and its potentials has come up a lot in the last week and a half. We have new people starting and others leaving, positions opening and being filled, and the subject of where I’m going from here is one I hadn’t previously considered a whole lot. Between getting through classes, getting through the next big project at work, getting through the semester with FnC, getting through the wedding and the honeymoon… I just haven’t looked to the future.
Now I’m looking. Bring me the horizon.
