One month and one day from this post, I'll have walked in my graduation ceremony. And damn, its a long way away from this post.
To that end, the advice I followed has me headed to class to learn more about what cometary dust tells us about the formation of our solar system. After which, I'm heading to a workshop on how I can best review the GIS modeling techniques of previous airburst/bolide (meteor hit) events for my capstone project.
Suffice to say, shit's kinda lit. Knowing I actually have less than 4 weeks since graduation happens after classes end is a nice reminder to plan backwards.
Heading to Cuba for a stint mid-January, then I'm off to Birthright in February. I want to lock in the farm to extend my stay there over this weekend.
I think I need to find other mediums alongside do another overhaul on my current dating platforms. 'Cuz this shit ain't happening. I've reaffirmed my standards are high in terms of emotional intelligence I'm looking for, so that may be a part of the latter...
On that note, I have been connecting with someone who is not available in terms of dating and that's ok. Someone recently shared a couple key points:
1) There is (socializing) stuff anyone has to do before dating is on the table. When you get to that crossroad, then you can start talking about whether dating is something two parties are open to.
2) As such, there is no pressure with this person. Have fun, see it as practice for the former and enjoy what I cultivate with them.
3) Networking isn't just a business term. Perhaps this person can point me in the direction of what I'm looking for.
Early Year in Review
I met so many goals I set for myself.
___ Graduate (PENDING)
The only couple glaring ones were fitness goals (absurd amounts of pull ups), and relationships (WIP). I found I could define the past few semesters by [failed] relationships. Each one had be get a little bit closer to what I'm looking for, alongside coming to understand redflags for me. And yet, my biggest take away there is the community I have around me to catch me when I fall. What I've learned from them on dating, how they've enabled me to work through getting 'unstuck,' and moving on to find/attract a more wholesome partner.
God I fucking love sub-titles.
