Why I Will Miss Winter

Somehow it's March already. Winter is almost over (even though it snowed yesterday). This winter wasn't that snowy and even though last winter probably provided enough snow for a lifetime I still love snow. Can't really imagine a winter without snow.

Also somehow I'm already four years into college. In a little over a year I'll hopefully be graduating. This kind of makes me feel really old (even though I'm only 21). I hopefully have my entire life ahead of me but it's kind of crazy to think that I'm entering the "real world" soon. I've asked friends, friends have asked me, and I've thought about what I plan on doing after college. My answer usually includes living in California for two years. I really want to see what the west coast is like. But I do know I'll miss snow if I'm there during the winter. (I have no idea if it snows in California...)

There are other places I could consider going. I've always have had some fascination in politics and working in DC is something I could maybe consider. I haven't been overseas but I do want to visit London someday. Who knows, maybe I might want to live there for a couple of years. As I've said I do want to visit the west coast at some point. If I have the chance I really should experience more places, I definitely haven't done enough of that but even then change can be a hard pill to swallow and Boston has been great to me for the last four years. Don't really want to go back to Rhode Island at this point and I hate New York City.

I don't think I'm scared of the future, I just haven't really put deep thought into it yet. It's still a year away so I still have time to think about it but it's only a year away so I don't have much time to think about it. The easiest thing for me to do is to stay here for a couple years and figure things out. But if I do that I may never leave, accept what I've got and never leave my comfort zone. This coop cycle I wanted to work somewhere that would challenge me and I think so far it's fulfilled my expectations. I feel like for most of my life I've stayed in my comfort zone. Now I haven't decided how far I want to stray yet.
