I've been planning out the rest of 2016 lately (which is a crazy sentence, considering we're not even 3 months into the year) and I've realised that if all goes well, I will be out of the country for more of the year than in it. And even if things don't go well, I'm definitely going away for more of this summer than I initially thought I was. See, the program I posted about last week goes from the last day of May to the end of July... and for whatever reason I thought I was going to get out in mid-July. Nothing wrong with that, except it means a lot of flying and little time in the United States.
This is all very good and exciting, except for the bit where I realised that in one year from now, I'm going to be a little over two months away from graduating college. I'm going to need to get a job. I'm probably going to move again, and I can honestly say I have NO idea where that will be. I suspect I'll be in one of a few places, but it's far too early to say.
I love living a life of uncertainty at times, but at other times it's really tiring. It's awesome because I'm young and this is definitely one of the only times in my life where I'll have this much change happening all the time (I think). It's also not awesome because it's a bit frightening that there's so little consistency. There are things I thought I could count on and people who I thought would be here or there at a given moment, and it doesn't look that way any more. A lot of my friends are going to be abroad during my Senior spring, so things will be pretty different. It's really hitting me that I'm going to have to join the work force soon...
...Well, I have a paper proposal due tomorrow that I really should be working on, so hopefully more posts next week. I definitely have one or two things in mind for sure!
