Take The Wheel And Go

Eversince I can remember, I wrote. When I was in gradeschool I wrote short stories, middle school I added in scripts and poetry into the mix then by highschool I started blogging.

So for college it was a no-brainer I picked Journalism. I was one of the few people who never changed my major. I was published by my sophomore year.

Now, I’m getting paid to do what I love. When I look back on that, it’s inspiring. I stuck to my passion and now I get paid to do it.

There are a lot of people who settle for a career. Life happens and people just do what gets them by. I don’t think they have to. No goal is unachievable if it’s what you really want. Is it easy? No, of course not. College was one of the toughest experiences. But it was also the most rewarding experience too.

What was even more inspiring were the older people in my classes. I went to a public university downtown, so it was very much of a commuter campus.  In many of my classes there were people in their 40s, 50s and even 60s.

So it’s never too late. If you have something you’re passionate about, just do it. It’s rewarding and makes life better. There were a few things along the way that would have been easy and got me working quicker. But I’m glad I stuck it out. So if you’re stuck in a job you don’t like, or a major you don’t like, only you can change it. Doesn’t matter what’s going on, you are the only one in control. So take the wheel and go.

  1. I loved my B.A. major, I love my MSW concentration, and I love what I do! It was so worth the agony mentally, financially, and emotionally. Best decision ever was to invest in myself and my future. Now I have an open road ahead of me (once I finish my masters)!
