So about 2 months ago I graduated from college. I never thought I would see the day. Not because I didn't think that I was capable but more so that it is a day that everyone waits forever for. It starts in elementary school people asking what you want to be when you grow up, but you never actually feel the weight in that question until now. When you are post-grad interviewing or working for a corporation, where you have to figure out how to style business professional and which handbag of yours looks the most professional. Some of my friends have it easy and they decided to be teachers or accountants, and it seems as though their career path fell into their lap. I, on the other hand, have no idea. As a Communications major, I learned about everything from the Mass Media to Interpersonal Relationships, so the number of jobs I consider myself qualified for is endless. However, I still seem to have the same issue as so many of my peers that I am still not hired and still not entirely sure who I would like to hire me. Maybe that’s the issue, maybe the companies can read it on my face that I don’t really want to work for them or I don’t buy into what the company is all about. I approach most jobs with the mentality, “well of course I can do it, but do I want to do it?” How sad! People should aspire to careers they are passionate about, not the highest paying entry-level job! It’s easy to get caught up in the numbers when you are seeing them on every job posting or learning about them in every second or third round interview, and its also easy to lose sight of whether or not the work will make you happy. Most recently, I have realized that I am guilty of chasing the money and not necessarily what I am passionate about or what excites me. I think that if you follow your dreams and pursue your passions, your success in life in uncapped.
Enter this new blog. For sometime I have always imagined what it would be like to be a blogger and share everything from the places I travel, the things I do, the products I love, the outfits I wear, all in one place for other people to enjoy and be inspired. I’m not necessarily that best writer of my time, but I do have a lot to say and a lot of knowledge (I think) to be shared! So for now, at least until I find out what my next move is (for the first time in my life it hasn’t been decided for me), I’m going to share what I love here with you and I hope you enjoy!
