it's dark. cold. rainy. i'm contemplative and moody, but not in a bad way. work is taking up so little of my brainpower/energy that my brain is actively crying for more stimulation. i end up thinking (and overthinking) about the world and life in general, and of course my world and my life too, because i'm self-absorbed like that (or we can call it introspective, if we're being nice).

my main thankgsiving-appropriate-conclusion: i feel so lucky for the people and opportunities and things i have in my life. i get so caught up in thinking about little (and overly, out-of-my-control-big) issues that i forget this sometimes, but it's true. i think i'm also feeling a little lost right now because i feel like i'm not really participating in the real world yet, and i'm ready. but i have to be patient. the copious waiting-time i have right now is an opportunity just like work will be, and i am so spoiled to have it.

i'm headed north to visit family and meet my (BRAND NEW ONE-WEEK-OLD!) niece this week. these sorts of trips are filled with so many little mini-stressors (packing! making the flight! family craziness! being out of my routine!) but this year i am going to try to look past them and just enjoy the time with family, since it's not like we all get together all that often anymore.

i hope everyone who reads this has a peaceful and fun holiday. happy thanksgiving.
