I’m a Rutgers grad, and majored in Psychology and English while there. I’m not doing much with the English side, but I love working in the psych field, and will eventually be applying to different Psy.D programs. I've still got a lot of work to do for that, but I’m really excited about beginning that stage of my life; it’s the only path where I don’t feel any doubts about what I’m doing. I’m still making preparations for that though, so I’m just trying to enjoy what I’m doing and grow as a person in the meantime.
Work takes up a lot of my time, and I really like my job, but apparently there’s a whole other section where I’m supposed talk about that, so I’ll get to it later. Other than that, I do a lot of exercise stuff (not in gyms when I can avoid it). I really love exploring new places whenever I can. I definitely gravitate more towards nature stuff I guess, but I’m open to other things too. I really just like a peaceful atmosphere and meeting with good people.
I like talking to people, but I’m pretty quiet a lot of the time too. I can be comfortable with either, and like to be around others who feel the same. I really like listening to other people’s stories, and being heard in return. I admire anyone who can be open and self-aware of themselves. I try my best to do that too, though it is a work in progress (I guess that’s kind of true for everyone though).
I took a break from this site (among other things), so that I could just refocus and gain some perspective on my own. Ironically, the main thing I re-learned from it all is just how inspired I get from being around others, and how much I miss making connections with them. I’m really open as to what that could mean, whether it be dating, friendship, or just conversation (particularly the last two). I’m balancing a lot right now and will have some big life changes sooner or later (i.e. grad school), but I don’t want to miss out on meeting people and experiencing things on the way.
TL;DR: it was basically either try OKC again and start meeting people, or just buy like 20 cats and quit leaving the house. I went with the first one.
