Happy New Year everyone! I hope the holidays were good to you.
I know its not exactly December 31 or January 1 anymore, but I think there is still time to ruminate on last year and this year. I spent this past weekend with three of my favorite people, good friends from college who have scattered to different places along the east coast. Saturday night I was out with these college friends and ran into a couple pals from high school. The two groups combined to make one table, to share drinks and conversation. I felt some duty to introduce everyone to everyone else, and proceeded to do just that- "Jen lives in Boston and works at a design firm, Katie owns a store downtown, etc." When I had covered everyone, one of my more insightful friends looked at me, and said, 'What about you?"
I didn't have an answer- all I could say was, "but...everyone already knows me..." The super-simple question caught me almost entirely off-guard. I've been thinking about it ever since, and I still don't have a really great answer. I graduated in June and am looking for a job. I'm a waitress. I spend a lot of time on the internet. Still, none of those things really define who I am. How would you define yourself?
I'll keep you posted on my progress; I wish you luck on all your ventures in this new year.
