No way has it been over a month.

Sometimes when you're learning, you get stuck in this rut of self-doubt, sure that if you don't understand this simple thing there are millions of other things you don't understand either; in fact you don't understand anything at all, and there's nothing you can do about it. And sometimes when you've grasped something completely, you become so certain of your own intelligence that you don't feel as if you'll ever need to learn anything ever again, and you miss the obvious (and necessary) lessons that come in the meantime.

And sometimes you strike just the right balance between the two, where you can feel yourself growing every day, building on what you already have with things that are new and exciting and wonderful. I've been hitting that stride for a couple of weeks now, working on a couple of projects I've been thinking about for a long time and generally figuring out a lot of things about myself. It's an introspective kind of place, and one that's hard to articulate, which is one of the reasons I haven't been posting. (The other one being sheer lack of time to type up posts...) This is what spring is all about, what it does for me. I was afraid it wouldn't do it anymore now that I'm out of school, but I'm thrilled to see I'm wrong.
