One down...And it was the one I was the most worried about.
This week, is the dreaded finals week. And I am shaking in my boots. Quite literally. It's cold up here. Snowy, windy (apparently) normal Wyoming weather. At least one of the worst is over. Now I just have two projects and two finals left to finish...by Thursday.
Yet, here I am, procrastinating the whole terrible ordeal. I decided I passed my math exam with flying colors, so I deserve to have sometime on the internet. Until I begin again writing my research paper for English. Being in college is hard.
Today I was catching up on some blogs that I follow and I read this post by Ashley @i believe in unicorns. Then, I read a post about that post here by Bree @scribbles and snapshots. Guess what? BOTH were answers to my prayers. I was so happy to read about women in similar situations as I, struggling with the same concept/problem as I am.
What makes you happy? I've never been a logical thinker. I'm quite a creative mind. I've never been content with doing things logically or having a "normal" job. I've always wanted to make art, play with children, sing, write, read, play instruments, etc. for my career. Currently, I love my career. Being a paralegal is wonderful. I enjoy helping people through difficult times. Still, my creative mind often feels cramped and contained having to stay within the lines of legal protocol.
However, I'm currently a college student. I'm figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Currently, it's a teacher. I love children. I think I'd be just darling at it (to quote Ms. Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's). Still, I want to be a mother. I want to be a private voice teacher. I want to be an elementary school teacher. I want to be a writer. I want to be an artist. I really enjoy law, perhaps I'll even get my Juris Doctor one day. It is completely difficult to decide what to be when I grow up. Can't I just be a ballerina princess like I wanted to when I was four years old?
Life is beautiful. Art is everywhere. Spoken word, novels, music, even the sounds of children laughing. Art is a wonderful thing and my main goal in life is to help everyone see that art lives all around us. I want to make the world more beautiful. That is my goal in life. Now just to find my way getting there...
