I Feel Bereft...


I know I should be happy. It is the end of a long and ardous journey to be able to get to this point when I can look back with satisfaction and say that "Yes, I finished my studies". This means more to me than anyone could ever know. And yet, there is a strange feeling of emptiness inside of me where once there would be an ever present thought in the back of my mind. Now it's just... empty space.

Perhaps the correct way to describe it would be to say that my primary goal in life just got accomplished, and another one has not arisen to take its place. Because of this, I feel bereft... aimless... and I don't know where to go next. What do I do? Where do I go?

This picture of crossroads best sums up all the jumbled feelings I have inside. Look at the wide empty open spaces. Feel the desolation of the desert wind on your face. Know how the man must feel, having roads before him that he must choose to go to his next destination. But does he know where he's headed? Does he? Do I?

I can barely recall what is it. I remember it was quite a good show....

Boon Soong: Hi, thanks for visiting my blog.

Sorry I don't know which movie this picture is from as I nicked it off the Net from somewhere else (I forget where!). :o)
