Life after college cannot be compared to life in college. A lot of things change, for one, I now have a lot more money, a new car, a new job, however, I'm not surrounded by hundreds of my best friends. And when I say HUNDREDS, that's what I mean.
The football team alone had 100 guys on the roster and those are my brothers for the rest of my life. I had no problems with anyone on campus so I considered everyone at ISU like my family. We were all together in one place, going through everything as one.
Life after college can get repetitive, you start getting into a routine and even though routines build success, after awhile you can feel like there's no way to escape it. You can become married a monotonous, mundane life. It can sometimes feel as if you're going to live THE EXACT SAME DAY forever.
That's part of the reason why I started this platform, Through2Eyes, so I wouldn't feel so trapped by the "rules" of the world. This would just allow me to showcase who I really was, what I really thought and why I'm really here. There's no niche here simply cause I'm not married to living life one particular way.
I look for the topics that interest me, and I write about them, I tell stories about them, I try to make other people just as excited as I am.
For a person that likes to be excited, likes to be loud, likes to show enthusiasm in all that he does.... The workplace can look to kill that at times. The attempted murder of my electricity is not intentional, but it's a byproduct of the not being surrounded by people with that same level of constant energy.
"The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind" - Albert Einstein
However, being at work has created a new wave of creativity for me. Once the creative mind is stimulated, you have two choices, act on it, or just let the time pass you by. Either way... the clock won't stop, and before you know it you could be engaged to a life that isn't engaging.
That's why I go on so many "adventures" to places that spark my interest, why I keep up on what's going on around me, why I stay engaged. Engaged to who I am and who I want to be. The more I see, the more I don't, and that just confirms that I'm not read to settle down yet.
