I’ve got a lot on my mind at the moment pertaining to my future goals and aspirations. Currently, I am set to graduate in 3 months with my Bachelors of Science degree. My main plan was to move to Southern California- where I grew up the majority of my life- and where the majority of my good friends are. I would try and get an internship/job- while studying for the GRE to apply to Grad School for most likely Cal State LA.
But- things change and options pop up out of nowhere.
I got an email this morning from my Geology/Hydrology professor entitled, “Chanel’s Bright Future..” Of course this intrigued me.
Basically in a nutshell- he would be honored to have me as a graduate student. His wife whom I met this past weekend at the Coastal Clean Up told him that she was very impressed by me and that he should try every trick in the lab to get me in there. So- now that’s another option- to get a masters in Coastal and Watershed Science and Policy (and my major is Environmental Science Technology and Policy- with an emphasis in Marine and Coastal Ecology).
But there is so much to take into consideration… the overall success of my career, my happiness, friends, family, location…
To be honest I really want to start a-new somewhere else after I graduate. But there are things here in Monterey that seem to shine a bright light down my career pathway. Gosh I really need some psychic to read my palms or something and help me figure out which way to go…
In the meanwhile, here is a picture of the beautiful sunset at Carmel Beach this past weekend. I definitely know I cannot move some place that is too far from the ocean. How could anyone?! If you have advice on life- I’d love to hear it.
