A Look At: My Bag: Transitioning pt. I

I accepted my very first job offer.

This is real. I have a big people job and I have to do big people things, wearing big people clothes, taking big people notes, with my big people planner.
I emptied out my school bag and thought I'd share a visual soliloquy of sorts, a peak into who I was as an Undergraduate transitioning into the young professional I'll turn out to be. At this point in my life, I think it's appropriate to say that I'm an anxious mess of a person. Inconsistency still terrifies me. The capacity for tomorrow's fickleness still keeps me up at night. I took a Philosophy course in my Undergrad, and while I hated it, it opened up my mind to all kinds of existential-crisis-enabling thoughts. We assume the sun will rise tomorrow because that's what it's always done. The statement, The sun will rise tomorrow is not a true fact because it is inherently true; It's true because the sun has not risen remains to be false. Note to self: I should write a whole separate post about this.

What I'm trying to say is I'm probably always going to be an anxious person. That "everyday is the same" is not a statement that is true anymore, with what I've learned in life and in school.

And to be honest, that terrifies the ever-living crap out of me.
Emptying out my bag, I found these things:

// 2 types of mints (I only like spearmint, but the mint from the VIVA bus company is delicious) // A ridiculous amount of emergency ketchup packages // Emergen-C for when myself or my partner starts to feel ill // Halls, for the same reason // pack of tissues // markers // one of many Arduinos I own // hand lotion // lip balm // glass cleaner // medicine pouch (contains headache and motion sickness meds. I am very often afflicted with both.) // receipt for a piadene that costs 11 money-dollars // A newspaper page with an article I really like // Android charger // earphones // pencil pouch with notebook and notes written on a napkin

  3. I guess this clearly defines transitioning adulthood in such a way that's it still the same you, but different, bigger, and more challenging tasks. Hoping the best for your upcoming days and with your new job. Just know everything will work out just fine! :)
