Last post about my new lifestyle as a minimalist, this week’s lesson about personal branding, and a conversation I had with my boyfriend recently really got me think about who the heck am I?! This being my fourth course in school, having a resume longer than anyone wants to read, and many hobbies that I have tried to turn into something more than a hobby. I can’t ever seem to settle on something.
As a 23 year old, people say there is lots of time to figure out “what you want to be when you grow up.” And sure I agree, but I can never see myself settling into just one thing. I currently have 3 jobs, and have recently been to a few interviews and applied to 3 more. I am a strong believer of working at a job you love. And for me a 9-5 job where you do the same thing every day really doesn’t satisfy me. But am I really going to be working 5 jobs at once my whole life…? I don’t think so, especially one day when I decide it is time to pop out some kids. My current lifestyle would never fit into a schedule with kids. But how do you know what you really want to do?
It’s true what ‘they’ say about your life changing drastically in a year. A year ago I just started school again for the third time, convinced I would never go back after I finished. I had no clue where I would be once that program ended.
Even from a week ago when I started writing this post, to right now life has changed. I had an interview today for a regular Monday to Friday job!
The main point of this post is.. it’s tough being in your 20’s trying to figure out what you are going to do for the rest of your life. It’s hard enough to please yourself, but if you’re like me you have family and friends on your back about it too. By this time next year who knows what kind of job I’ll have, or what I’ll be doing (Let alone next week!) Seriously. It’s tough growing up, but as long as you are satisfying that little fire inside of you, and being able to support your basic needs. I guess you’re not doing too bad. Just sit back and enjoy the adventure!?
When you aren’t too sure about where your life is headed, don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Here’s a window into my crazy ever changing life. http://bit.ly/2kHbkUe
