I admit I am a bit of a Facebook junky. I like to blame that on my lifestyle - I have met a lot of people in my travels/life/jobs, and I definitely enjoy keeping up with everyone and their adventures. The last month or so I have tried to get back in touch with friends from back in elementary and middle school.

One thing that keeps kicking around in the back of my head, though, is the fact that most of my friends from that time period are now mid-career and are fairly successful. I wonder where I would be if my life had taken a more conventional route. I definitely enjoy moving around, seeing new things, meeting new people, but there is something to be said for slowly working up the food chain at the same employer.

even though im only 25, i feel like most of my hs/college friends are significantly more 'successful' than i am, at least by conventional standards. im really torn right now trying to decide what exactly i want to do after finishing grad school next year - try to work for a company i can be at for a while (that will allow me to travel), or say fuck it and take short-term jobs and keep moving and finding new employment every few years.

semi-unrelated, but now that ive finally joined linked in im half obsessed with it. its quickly replacing facebook for me, i think.
