So, the last few months, I've kind of been having my quarter-life crisis just a few years late (does that mean I'll live to 108?) I've been freaking out about stupid things, like my job and my savings and all kinds of stuff.

But today, I thought about it. If I'd done all the things I wanted for college, if I'd gone to William and Mary to pursue the marine biology degree, then where would I be now? I don't have any guarantees it would be a BETTER place. A different place, probably. I don't know if I'd have ended up back in Nebraska, but maybe I'd still be in an office job that I don't hate but don't really love, either.

I do know for certain that I never would have met my best friend. [livejournal.com profile] krillia and I only met because of UNL's anime club, so take that out of the picture, and we didn't exactly run in the same circles. Heck, I only started liking anime because of watching Adult Swim most nights on the phone with my brother. I don't know as that would have held up with a long distance call instead of a local one.

No Krill and no anime would probably mean no roleplaying, either. I only got into THAT because of my last college roommate. No UNL means different roommates with different interests, and who knows? I might have ended up doing steampunk instead or writing original fiction or any number of things that aren't the current me. [livejournal.com profile] krillia is also responsible for getting me into DBSK, so that would probably be right out, too. It's possible, I would have come around to the same things by a different route, but certainly not guarranteed.

And no roleplaying or DBSK would mean no [personal profile] thousandneedles.

That's where I realized that, no, life may not be perfect or exactly what I envisioned it being, but it's pretty fucking awesome exactly as it is. Not saying the quarter-life crisis is over or anything, but now whenever I start worrying about why didn't I go to a different college or have a different major or go to grad school, I can remember that because I DIDN'T do those things, my life led me here, to the happiest, most content, most wonderful place I could ever imagine being. That has nothing to do with my job or my savings or my house or anything at all. It's the people.



tl;dr = I love you guys. :)
