This is a bit rawer than I usually write, but it explores what I’m feeling and where I am now.
I am finally beginning to get back to the way I was before I ever entered that school. I’m working around what used to be my home office and I am finally able to pick things up and am trying to figure out where they go. I have listed books for sale that represent my academic and professional life. I have thrown a lot of things away, and for a pack rat it’s very difficult to throw things away because I might need them in the future. I think now that I see that my life will definitely be very different. I realize I no longer need to hold on to the clutter.
