I’m pretty opinionated, but not always educated about those opinions. Or rather, my education was limited. I imagine that’s normal for someone as they’re growing up, and I was hellbent on making change. I think that’s normal, and maybe even a little bit good to have so much energy to work for something. (Sidebar: My energy has been waning for a while, though, after eight years in my current job, and I afraid I’m so burned out that I’ll need another eight years to recover.)
Several of my social views have not changed, but have actually gotten stronger.
