I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself. But now that part of my life is over. It is time to say goodbye to the person we’ve become, we’ve worked so hard to perfect. And to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we’re going to be.

[Robert Frost] described life after graduating as pieces to go on with. What he meant is that life is always unfinished business. Like the bits of knitting women used to carry around with them to be picked up at different intervals. And for those of you who have never knit, think of it as akin to your Tumblr, something you can pick up from time to time and change … So today, you gorgeous brilliant people, get on with your knitting.
