Here’s to the people who want to know what I’m doing with my life – just as much, or possibly more, than I even want to know.
Here’s to all the people asking me if I have SET what I am going to major in.
Here’s to all the people that want to know when the heck I will actually be graduating.
This is for all of those that stick their nose in my business, only to ignore me after I tell ya whats up.
Shout out to all the people who make assumptions, then spread rumors about whats going on in MY LIFE.
This ones for all the people who think THEY know whats best for MY life.
Shout out to all the people stressing about my future.
Here’s to all the people telling me “this is just a phase”, “you’re lost”, and my all time favorite, “you’re going to regret this”.
My life is my life. Where and when did I ask you your thoughts on my life? And if I actually did, that was like 3 months ago and the time limit on that question was there in that moment. Not now, not tomorrow, or whenever else you decide I am “wrong” when it comes to my own life.
Yeah maybe I am lost? Or maybe I am just finding my way. My life is not your life, and my life will never look like your life. If you think I am crazy for changing my major 6 times, or wanting to minor in something, or transferring schools after 2 years then we, my friend, are not cut from the same loaf of bread.
Many people in our society put pressure on getting in and out of college as fast as we can. Put pressure on choosing the major that best works with your strengths and is actually realistic. And by “realistic” they mean; are you actually going to make a good enough income to have the biggest house, or the coolest car? Will your job allow you to make enough money to “be happy”. Yeah, thats not me. Thats not how I see it.
How I see it is that college truly is our time to “find ourselves”, just like all those cheesy movies and blogs say. This is where I put my strengths and weaknesses to the test. College is the time I get to move around, and change my major over and over again. This is the place that will impact some portion of my future, I mean this is where I decide what I will get a degree in, what subject my career will possibly be related to. This is where I create a starting point for my future.
And I will not settle.
I will not settle for safe.
I will not settle for a major that is “realistic”.
I will not settle for a major that doesn’t set my heart and mind on fire.
I will not settle and just shrug my shoulders about being in debt just so I can stay at the original University I started at.
I will not settle for any guy that doesn’t see my true worth just because I am supposed to be settling down soon, or some crap like that.
I will not settle for anything that I don’t feel is right for my life.
I will not settle for anything that is not true to me.
I will not settle just to make everyone around me feel comfortable, and worry free about my future.
I will not settle
And this is me asking ya’ll to STOP.
Stop trying to place seeds of doubt into my mind just because you don’t see eye to eye with what I am envisioning. Stop discouraging me to follow my passions and what makes me TRULY happy just because you think I will regret it in the future. Stop telling me to settle so that I will have a safe, realistic future.
Just stop telling me how to live my life and accept that I am entirely happy with where I am and the journey of getting there. To be honest, I am exactly where I want to be and I am in no hurry for this journey to end. I will arrive at my destination when it is my time to get there. So for now, chillax and enjoy this crazy ride with me my lovelies.
