I swear, there are certain moments of the day when I just look around and wonder to myself, "How the hell did I get myself here?"
Like today, for instance.
I've been stuck in meetings all week, staring at a 3D model of a chemical plant projected up on a screen for 8 hours a day - tedious, to say the least. Today I glanced around the room over my 10th cup of coffee and realized that, of course, I was the only female in the room.
The only female, and the youngest person by at least 10 years.
In a meeting of 30 people!!
And it took me 4 days to notice this because it's just so normal to me at this point.
If you had asked me in high school what I would be doing 10 years in the future, I just don't think I could have imagined this scenario with any stretch of my imagination... Sigh...
