I know, I know. It’s been almost a month since I last posted. Sorry! I’ve been having a busy schedule lately. I’ll be posting a little more throughout the summer, I promise!
When I was little, people would ask me, «What do you want to be when you grow up?» I knew exactly what I wanted to be. I simply and sometimes eagerly replied, ‘I want to be a veterinarian!'» That lasted from the age of 6 to the age of 11. When I was 11 I found out I had to operate on animals in college, that idea quickly died. I also wanted to be a zoologist because I loved tigers to an extreme amount. But after 5th grade, that fizzled out.
Now being 18, almost 19, I have no idea what I want to be. I have many ideas running through my head but nothing stuck to me yet. I want to be in the fashion industry and try to change the face of marketing. I personally dealt with the affected of the industry and I know how the pressures of it can damage young adults.
I also want to be a choreographer because I know I don’t have the technique level to become a professional dancer. Whenever I listen to music, I can’t help but to start think of choreography. It comes naturally to me.
Another thing I am interested in pursuing, which is a little bit more academic, is a major in Women’s’ Studies. I took a semester long course during my first semester senior year. Every since that class, I have had an interest to continue with it. I would definitely be down doing a double major with Women’s Studies as one of them.
Whatever comes to me when I finally decide, I just want to be happy about it. I want to be passionate for whatever I do in life. I don’t want to be miserable and hate the work I do.
For all the people reading this, what do you want to be? What did the 6 year old version wanted to be? Are you having a struggle deciding between happiness and passion or having economic security?
