First, I came home, after an easy midterm. The single-life doesn't have much to offer a 22-year-old female during Spring Break. When I should be working on my beach-bod, instead I am filling out application after application, trying to figure out what I am going to be doing within the couple months. Everything I really want to be doing seems so out of my reach. Poeple say they see big things for my future, well, stuck in this small town isn't going to get me much of anywhere. I always thought I would be doing PR for some celebrity or professional athlete.
This year, I got tired of being pushed around and cut some people out of my life, I made some changes, and I have never been better. However, there is a point that you look back on the past and you wonder, "Could I have done something differently to get me to where I want to be now? Was there a short cut?" Truth be told, I don't believe in short cuts. I believe you have to work for what you want. You have to be willing to place yourself on the line for those things, as risky as it may seem. All 5'2'' of me is ready to move on and get to where I need to be. Graduation is quickly approaching, and what am I doing over my Spring Break? Research, research, and did I mention research? I am looking for career opportunities, were I feel my abilities will be most needed and cherished. I want to make a difference and be on a team that I believe in.
So, while others are lying on the beach, I am jumping in my tannig bed for ten minute increments and figuring out my life. So, if you have any adivce, it's welcomed, but until my life is on track toward success, I won't be completely happy.
