“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.” – Zora Neale Hurston
I love this quote. I read the book Their Eyes Were Watching God a few years ago for a college English class. To be honest, I didn’t love the book, but I have a feeling if I read it again I might feel differently. That’s what’s great about literature and life. As I grow up I find that I might not like the same things as before because I’m not entirely the same me as before.
I feel as if I’ve figured out what I want in life just a little bit more since the last time I wrote about growing up. My internships are helping with that.
Writing about this just reminded me of how this great professor I had in fall would talk about how the idea of finding out who you are and forming an identity is strange to her. After all, identity is not a static thing. There are aspects of it that can change over time. I wish I could express what she said as well as she did. Hopefully you get what I mean.
A while ago I put together this playlist centered around the idea of “in-between time.” Take it for whatever it means to you. For me, it means being in my 20s, trying to find out what kind of career I want, where I want to live, when to get married and other big things like that.
You can listen to the playlist above, or listen on your Spotify player by clicking here.
I’m going to leave you with one more quote because I love quotes.
“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” E. E. Cumings
