The past two years, the past six months

May 5, 2010

My adult life (which I measure as my post-college life) has been moving at an alarming rate.  It has spanned more than two years now, which I find hard to believe and also frightening.  From the third grade through high school, I kept  good-old-fashioned, keep-out-don’t-read journals.  During college, this habit dropped off, but my progress and experiences were still documented, I think, through mid terms and final projects.  Sadly, these past 2+ years seem lost to me,  documented by hardly anything personal.  And so I’ve decided to leave my little mark– my little trail of bread crumbs– via blog.  To catch up, I’ve recounted a selection of my life’s encounters during the past six months.
