All that I’ve done today is read blogs. Well, that, bake some cookies, and drop off a check at the bank. Granted, they were blogs that pertain to my future life and what I want to do with it, so in that sense it was kind of research.
I’m just not very good at being a sedentary person. Yes, sometimes it’s nice to take a day off and not move from your space on your parents’ comfy couch, but how many of those does it take before that’s your regular day? Thankfully, neither myself nor my parents would ever allow that to happen. It is very easy to see the future in a negative light, especially with everything negative you hear about everyone else’s future. All I hear is that the economy is in the pooper. People my age are simply out of luck. A college degree is next to useless (even if it’s not a BFA), get ready to work at McDonald’s if you’re lucky enough to get a job (hey, food service, already prepared to head at ya!).
The good thing about what I want to do is I’m expecting a certain rate of what others would consider failure for a while. I’m actually pretty excited about it, because it means working to do what I love, and I really enjoy doing what I love strangely enough. Before that happens though, I have about four weeks left of classes and six months after that of working to have a nice little safety net of cash before I head out to the daunting city that is Los Angeles.
