So, lately I have been coming to realize how tenuous and fleeting it really is.

I think I'm having a midlife crisis. I'm in my mid thirties. Aren't I too young for that? Maybe this isn't that anyway. I mean, I love my husband and our house and the dogs and all. But, the whole career thing. Yeah. I think the problem is that American's so identify ourselves by our careers. It's one of the first things we ask strangers, right? What do you do? That's so rude in most of the world. But here, that's the norm. And now... what do I do?

Uh... nothing at the moment. And what that then means about me? Yeah, let's not go there.


Enough. Must find something meaningful to do with my life.

Any suggestions?

You know, I actually feel the same way a lot of the time. I'm back in school, but I wonder how much of that is because I really want to be and how much of it is because I just don't know what the fuck I'm supposed to do.

Maybe you should try your hand at being a writer. If they will print Twilight and sell it, then that proves that they will print anything. Which isn't to say that you aren't a talented writer, I think you are.
I have no clue either and I'm in a job I can't stand. I don't have any answers as to what you should do but I definitely know DON'T SETTLE. You'll regret it. Even if it's considered a "menial" job, if you like it and you like the people, that's all that matters.

But don't go back to school. :P
