The Hobbit and Other Adventures

What does your heart tell you?

~J.R.R. Tolkien

I pulled this quotation from my Inspiration Jar today, and it feels particularly apt for several reasons. First, I just finished watching the two recent Hobbit movies with my boyfriend, and was inspired to get the book on tape from the library for my upcoming solo road trip. More existentially, perhaps, I feel like Tolkien is asking a question here that I’ve been dancing around for months. I am between serious, Big Kid jobs, and about to start applying to graduate school programs, and I’m feeling absolutely adrift in the world. I wish I could say that I know what I want to do when I “grow up” (she says at age 25), but I feel clueless.
