If you are 25 or turning 25: It's OK that you have not gone to grad school. It's also OK if you're thinking of going. And many may not agree with me, but I think it's OK to apply to grad school because you still haven't found a job in this economy.
Recently, I realized that a bunch of people close to me all have birthdays at the same time and I started thinking about the similarities in our personalities. That's when it hit me: We're all Geminis!
So what if my life isn't exactly what my 20-something self thought it would be by now? I still have plenty of time to accomplish everything I want in life, and I'm not afraid to climb the mountains it takes to enjoy the view.
As I approach my one-year birthday and I reflect on what it means to be tied up and untied, I am reminded the importance of holding on to hope, of dreaming big, and believing that miracles can and do happen.
