As 2018 began, I entered a new season. Now that I am a college graduate, I have started a new chapter of my life, one that involves being a full-time employee. For a lot of people in my position, this time can be incredibly stressful due to the oncoming responsibilities that the future brings, like starting to pay back student loans, finding a place to live, and stocking up on a new work wardrobe.
A few weeks ago, I took my first plane ride. Most people seem to have taken their first trip through the clouds when they were children, and regarded me with disbelief when I, a twenty-four-year-old, told them I had never done it. I flew from Atlanta to Raleigh, North Carolina and back, a trip that took a little over an hour each way.
It’s a new year and that always means the same thing – time to make those resolutions. I, like many, make New Year’s resolutions that center around my health and my family. I need to eat better, exercise more, spend more time with my kids, work a little smarter, and lose a few pounds.
