What's Next?

Tony's been posting a lot more that I have lately! While his last posting was about a story from his past, I'm going to go with the future on this one. I have been thinking about how I feel like I'm at the age where everyone I know is at a different point in their lives. One of my best friends, Sarah, has been married for almost 2 years, has a house, a dog, and is pregnant with her first baby. Some people, like Alyssa, are still in school (granted it's med school). Some people managed to find a job that they love already. Others, like me, still trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives! I think I'm getting there though or at least in the process.

It's kind of strange to have friends, like Sarah, who are in a totally different stage in their lives. Luckily, she is a great friend and I'm not worried that she's going to abandon me or any of us other non-married chicks! But I know that when she has her baby, things are going to change a lot. I guess that's life though! I always wonder how long before I and my other close friends will begin going through the things Sarah's done in the past 2 years...5 years, 10 years, never? Who knows!

I remind myself that there's no one way to live your life and not to get ahead of myself trying to plan what's next. Because I tend to want to know what's next and I'm not very good at waiting! I guess I'll have to wait and see, but for now I have an exciting new job in 2 months which keeps me going and a great roomie (Tony :)) that I have tons of fun with...great family & friends too (but I've always had that). I'd like to write more, but I'm at work and have to go to a meeting. I'm so productive. :)

Out of all of my close high-school friends, I am the only one with kids- and two of them! It was weird at first, but now it seems fine, especially because it hasn't changed a thing with our friendships.

And, be thankful that you aren't having kids the same time as your friends because, trust me, that is the more trying time in friendships. All of my friends here have babies and it seems like each one of us has our own idea about what's best for our kids, and things can get sticky sometimes when we talk about certain subjects.

Changing jobs is a wonderful opportunity and almost as big of a step as getting married or having a baby because, besides home, that's where you will spend most of your time, so it's important to find something you like. And, if you are lucky enough to find that right now, then it will just be in place for when other lifechanging things come along.
