This break was nice and as relaxing as my breaks seem to be anymore. Some definitely positive things gained from this break in the mentality department which, as I pointed out above, is a good thing. If I would have known I was going to have to be 23 before somethings started to make sense I would have holed up and waited. That would have saved a great deal of emotional turmoil on many fronts. But, alas! That is not what happened and now I am in a position to learn from my mistakes and make new, better informed decisions about what I want in life and from life in return.
Looking into doctoral programs is scary as shit. That is all I have to say on that at the moment.
All in all, I need to figure out what I want. Once I can do that, and explain it in a nice concise sentence, I think I will be able to put a great deal of my troubles behind me. Lets hope, shall we?
