I have a cork board with a world map on it

I dreamed of travel

I would put red pins on places I wanted to visit

Life went on

Thoughts of my long-awaited career flooded my mind

I smiled and grew

Thoughts of my current academic career flooded my mind

My long-awaited career looked unpromising in terms of hiring me

My future financial stability looked bleak

I stopped smiling

I got more realistic

It breaks my heart to know that as the years passed, I slowly removed each “visit here” pin until there were none left
