I have always been the type of person who never wanted to work. Yes, I said it! I did not have any eagerness to go to work. I still don’t. I’ve always wanted to get paid for the thing(s) that I loved to do. That way, what others would call “work” I would call fun. (Thought I was lazy, huh? Nope) I went through college hoping and praying that my major would not end up being a MAJOR disappointment once I graduated. Meaning that what I thought would be fun and prosperous would turn into work and burn out. I still have the passion for that field (psychology), but along the way I fell in love with a camera and a runway. I have been pursuing modeling ever since.
Now some would say that I am wasting my education, intelligence, years of writing papers, late nights, and hours of study and class time. They would say that I am not operating at my full potential. But what am I to do when I know that I am very talented in both? Pursue one and never the other? Go through life wondering IF? I have been blessed to have this abundance of potential. Who is to say that I cannot pursue both but in their rightful time and order? I am at a point in my life’s path where I am on the verge of a variety of experiences that can change the course of what I once thought was my future. Even in my wish-upon-a-star dreams these ideas did not cross my mind. But the fact remains…I am here. What choices and sacrifices will have to be made? What challenges will I face? Will I be able to avoid the “work” of it and simply embrace it as lifestyle? Simply put: Can it just run smoothly…PRETTY PLEASE with sugar on top?! Only time will tell.
Until next week…Andrea
