School

Hey!

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.

  1. Do what you love, do all that you love. I’m a programmer who wants to be writer. Do you see where I’m going with this ? Don’t give up on your dreams out of fear of judgement. That’s the biggest regret you’ll ever have. Good day to you 🙂 make wise choices.

    • Sorry it took me so long to reply, but I wanted to say thank you for your kind words. I really didn’t think I was the only one. I hope you pursue you’re writing dream. I also love that you told me to make wise choices, I always tell my family that, so that made my day. Thank you so much. Have a lovely day, make wise choices. 🙂

  2. Lol you sound just like me! I’m at the opposite end of the spectrum though. I did the degree and job first and now as an adult decided to come to cosmetology school! I will say though, you may not need to go to college for all your passions. You just find ways to crunch them all together. I am a photographer who loves art and beauty, so I started doing it all 🙂 I have thought the same way as yourself, but there is nothing wrong with chasing ALL of your dreams!!! Just chase one at a time in the forefront:)
