Funny how stuff happens

Less than two weeks ago I was tearing down pallets, ringing up customers and working until 1:00 a.m. as a “crew member” at Trader Joe’s

Tomorrow I’m going to buy a car, so I can get to my new job as a copywriter at QVC. I never would’ve thought I’d be working for a home shopping network, but it’s actually a lot more than that, and a pretty cool company. I never thought I’d be buying a car or working anywhere outside of bike-distance, but here I am driving sixty miles a day.

When you’re smaller/in school, the future seems so mappable, and the lives of everyone around you seem pre-ordained. Even though I’ve been following the non-path of an adult for a bunch of years now, I’m still fascinated by the way it actually happens.
