I get mistaken for seeming older than I am.
Today, I was the youngest in a room of 25. I gain some sense of satisfaction when that happens.
I was asked today what I focused on in my grad program and I said evaluation and he said do you get to do evaluation here? and I got say actually that’s my JOB here. That was incredibly satisfying to say.
I must say, despite my many flaws and insecurities, I can say that I’ve actually, for once,done something I set out to do: get degrees in something I actually find interesting AND I’m pretty decent at then find a job that I really like and that is in the field I want to be in quickly after graduation.
I’m starting my (first) dream career at 24 and that is absolutely surreal to me.
I love it 🙂
