You know when you were young your parents made you feel as though you can do anything!
I loved that feeling, the feeling that is nothing that can stop you that no matter what you were you going to so great things.
But as years go one and teachers come to teach us stuff of life and careers, that understanding of anything is possible begins to die away and now you begin to understand that…..maybe I can’t do everything or anything, so that idea does slowly as the years progress (now before anything I’m not saying school is bad) you begin to think like an adult, I need to go to school, I need to have a career, that’s all good but then something is now crawling into our minds.
What career do I take?
See this where a lot are at a cross roads such as myself, originally was wanted to go into fashion, I drew styles of what I wanted wear when I would get older, but that was shortly destroyed when I had people telling me that there’s no life there, after that I wanted to be an archeologist like Indiana Jones, some them told me “grow up” so I did I went to night school and feel In love with art painting and doodle,who didn’t that when people told me I should be an art teacher because I would my summers off and the world still need teachers.
So all through out high school I said maybe a teacher would be great. Then I discovered something that really got my attention and to my followers who been with me since a started you would know I was on love with the history of cartoons and animation in the cinema world. I though I could be an archivist for Disney that would be amazing!
But when I got to university something changed again…. I was told that because of my dislixsia and add my mind can’t comprehend as much as a “regular” student would so writing skils were still bad really bad (as you can see).
So my advisor told me that the Disney archive position is a dad off dream that would never be reached…. I left UNI and is taking writing course but I have all those people asking what are am I gonna do now?
The famous question is now;
“Your 22 years old now, what are you gonna do now?”
And to tell you truth I don’t know, but I know that now I have the chance to go back to something I love. I this time I’m not gonna listen to the rest of the world.
So with terrible writing skills and and a broken dream I writ this little story to tell people who are still at that cross road wondering what career should you take?
Turn back and look at what made you happy and go from there. Because no matter what age you are you can still be anything and everything you set you mind for and work hard for!
Don’t forget like I did.
