Another start

Time to start at the bottom again!

Well, “bottom”. It’s not quite as linear out here in “the real world”. Many more factors play a role than just the year of study you’re currently in. Doesn’t change the fact that I’m an absolute newcomer to the whole Actual Serious Business scene though. It’s the beginning of yet another phase, and once again it doesn’t feel like that big a deal or that rough a transition. Gee, maybe there are no clear-cut “levels” to this after all.

But then, I get the feeling everything tells us it should be a big deal, that we should feel strong impact from such changes. Is that just because stories with non-blurry borders are easy to tell? Because these things get compressed to “a year later” rather than a description of all the days in between?

Regardless of how I feel about it, it’ll probably be interesting at the very least.

    I’m sure it will be interesting. It also probably feels like a big deal to the younger-you. You’ve just gone through this stuff so much it doesn’t really faze you much anymore. You’re just going with the motions. I’m sure if you took a few steps back and looked how far you’d come, you’d see the gap.

      Of course there’s a gap between now and, say, five years ago, but that gap has been built gradually. There isn’t one single point where I said “oh wow what is that chasm doing behind me all of a sudden?”
