My job as a museum curator is a big part of who I am. I know people say you should not let your job define you, but for me, I am doing for pay what I would be doing for fun anyway. I know it may not sound like fun to many, but for me, it’s exactly what I wanted for my life, though I didn’t know it for many years that this was what was meant to be.
I’m afraid of commitment. Not like I can’t hold down a relationship type of commitment. It’s more like I’m terrified of committing to an idea or belief system. And it’s starting to hold me back.

Even when there are awesome things around the corner, the process of moving is no fun. Moving sucks, and I’m not afraid to tell you that. On the plus side, I begin my adventure in two days and I’ve finally set some goals for myself.
I think the biggest contributing factor to my Quarter Life Crisis may be my inability to really latch on to one specific passion and expand it. Life has always been extremely interesting to me, and when I learn about new things and new adventures, I sometimes veer off the current path and follow this new, shiny thing.
While married, I never felt comfortable enough with myself outside of work to speak up for what I wanted or to do anything without worrying what people would think.
The universe is trying to tell me something. I’m convinced. After a summer of stressing over getting someone to rent to me, I applied to a random Craigslist housing ad. I found a nice two bedroom within my budget. It’s like the universe wrapped its arms around me and gave me a hug.
