A Normal Life
Part of it is just that everyone's having kids now. It's funny. You go through this period when everyone's getting married, then a few years later there's this period when everyone's having kids.
But NYC is a little different. Most of my friends are pursuing bigger career goals/dreams.
Watching this 60 Minutes segment, though... made me think about how there are a lot of people who don't live to chase after career goals. Most people are just looking for a good job that affords them a comfortable life and a means to raise a family. And there's a part of me that finds that idea oddly appealing. Just a simple life somewhere where the cost of living isn't so obscene. Raising a family, being a dad.
I've resigned myself to the idea that I'm going to be chasing my career goals for the foreseeable future. That doesn't necessarily have to exclude relationships, but it feels like it sometimes.
