It is easy to lose focus of an end goal, be it a future spouse or a full-time job. Stories and deadlines pile up, and sure, it will get easier soon, but what about "her?"
I have taken the patience approach over the last couple months on the topic. The last time I addressed "The One" was back in May. Of course, I would be lying if I said I do not think about a future spouse often, whether it's praying for a chance encounter or whatever pre-conceived notion comes out of the romantic Hollywood movies I have watched over the years.
And, I think she is close. I can just sense it. Last year at this time, I worried about a summer internship before having to turn down offers later on.
I think I will meet her soon. And I think I will have multiple job offers (I already have one) when I graduate, despite what the industry perception might be.
But how do I know? I don't, but I have faith.
As I continue to work hard in both respects, in what I call 'Dog Days,' I think a breakthrough is coming. Just wait.
