I live life in a state of in-between. I am both a graduate student and a full-time employee, and at times I do not feel fully present with either part of my life. I am twenty-three years old, and I feel I have become an adult in most senses but that I have not quite arrived. My boyfriend partner and I have been together for almost four and a half years, and he is more than my boyfriend but less than my husband. I even live in the middle of the state of Florida, for goodness' sake. I am going through a period in my life of learning more about myself, my desires for the future, and life in general. It's an interesting time, and although I find myself longing to hit "fast forward", I am trying to stay present and live in this moment.
