I hope you all are well and had a great Thanksgiving. I’ve missed you dearly, but school is exhausting lately and most days I miss my bed more, (don’t we all?)
I came on here to ask you guys a question. Am I the only one who has a million different passions in life? I don’t even understand it, I have so many different interests, and I want to do them all! But, do you know how expensive it would be to have a degree in every single thing that I want to be a professional at? Roughly the about of money the Kardashians make in a month, so, like, $10,000,000.
Why can’t I be that kid that has one passion in life and only wants to focus on that? Why couldn’t I just like computers, or just want to be a nurse?
Instead I get to be interested in; cosmetology, teaching, anatomy, science, paleontology, religion, politics, history, taking care of the elderly, genetics, philosophy, and writing. Just to name a few…
I really love school, and I am really excited to become a cosmetologist.
Its just, I don’t know if that’s the only thing I want to be.
A few months ago I decided that once I’m done with cosmetology school, I’m going to get a job and go back to college.
Woohoo! I’m actually really excited that I want to go back, and sort of proud, considering what a catastrophe it was the first time around.
So, of course once you decided to go to school/ back to school, you start thinking; what am I going to go to school for? I had thought about business, I thought it would make sense. Get a cosmetology license, get a business degree, own a salon, the end.
Sounds like a perfect plan.
Except for one tiny, small, rather important detail. I have no desire to go to business school, or own a salon. I know that when I am out of school I would love to work at a resort or spa, however; I would not love to have to run a resort or spa.
So once I finally came to terms with the fact that I will not be going to business school, I started thinking; well, I will get a degree in something, but what are my passions.
I have a fairly good idea of what I want to go to school for, I just don’t want to have to tell my family that I’m going back. It took them a while to get over the fact that I left college, now going back, I’m afraid they’ll see it as a joke.
I really don’t feel like my family takes me seriously, so I don’t really want to share my excitement about going back, because they’ll ruin it for me.
What do I do? Do I go back to school? Do I just stay a cosmetologist?
I really love cosmetology, I do, but it’s not the only thing I love, and I hate that.
