The Uncertainty Principle

January 31, 2011   Sorry about not updating for a while, guys. I've been pretty busy since break ended -- last week especially. I have a good excuse though: the deadlines for summer internship applications are approaching. I just sent in an application to intern at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, and I'm in the process of putting together a dozen others for different non-government organizations, think tanks, senators' offices, museums and basically anything else that sounds remotely interesting. There's no real method to my madness, though. I just want to find something I like, and I can’t even begin to guess what that might be.

I'm not someone who has my life scripted out for me; I don't know what I want to do when I graduate. Hell, I don't even know what exactly I want to do in until then to be honest! My goal for now is to just do what I like to do and stick with that. Sure, the time's going to come when I have to make a decision on, yanno, life, but I'll put that off as long as I can. I'm kind of into that whole "your career chooses you" type of thing anyway.

But don’t mistake uncertainty for laziness! I'm sure you could ask adults, and they'd have no idea what they want to be when they "grow up." College kids? Man, we're too worried about other stuff ... like hoping this wicked snow storm causes Hamilton to cancel classes for like the third time ever or whether the Diner has Reubens today. But don't think this means we're throwing our tuition out the window, Mom. We care about the "important" stuff too -- like making the Dean's List. (Congrats to the 40% of Hamilton students who pulled that off last semester! Insane!) It's just for now, I'd rather have my head in the (snow) clouds sometimes. I can’t keep it there forever now, can I?
