Wait a minute, you might be thinking, I was on my way to There and (hopefully) back again-what’s this?
I realized that the name of this blog no longer truly reflected its evolving nature. You see, I started this project at a time when I was just beginning to feel doubts about my career and my new city. It was accompanied by a sense of longing for the way things were. There was an intense desire to return to the place and person I had been. Sure, I would endure “character building” experiences and some things would change, but there was a clear idea of who I had been and wanting to return there.
I realize now that the adventure isn’t about going back. It’s in moving forward. It’s about forging a path that carries me not to who I used to be, but to who I strive to be. That striving has been and, I suspect, will always be perpetual. I’ve never been one to be satisfied with where I am, and in some ways, I hope to never be. I keep moving down the road that goes ever on and on.
The URL remains the same. I will continue posting about my experience in the life of science. But it’s time for something new and different, as well.
