Figuring out how to take control of my life again. I think I've ended up in the wrong place with where I am now. I walked away from research and academia thinking that I didn't like it and was done with it. I don't regret it though, it took going on the wrong path for me to realize what I really want, and what I'm good at. I could have continued straight into research out of apathy while being burnt-out, and I would have lacked focus and drive. I could also just stay put where I am and take the path of least-resistance and hope that I learn to like it, but I'd probably never feel fulfilled there. I needed a kick in the nads to get me to assess what I actually want to do and commit to it.
