I'm a few months into my first job out of college, and I'm really starting to feel like I can direct the course of my life. I've always had plans, but I've never had "a plan". It is a bit scary, and three bits exciting.
Eventually, I'm going to try starting a business. Hopefully with friends. I've always had a hundred little projects and ideas, but I've never put all my effort into really making one work.
After that, who knows. Wherever I end up, I hope I'm doing something interesting. And whatever I end up doing, I hope it makes the world a better place.
