How did I get here?

March 21, 2011

Some people always have an awesomely-amazing story about their lives and how they got where they are. I can’t even say I have gotten anywhere…actually, I’m certain I haven’t gotten anywhere, and yet I’m here. Where ever this is. In Columbus Ohio. Studying Creative Writing. Almost done with my military contract. With no direction what-so-ever on what I want to do with my life.

There’s another question. How do you know what you want to do for the rest of your life? I can hardly pick out what I want to eat for lunch let alone what I want to do for LIFE. I have changed my major seven times in the last three years. I should almost be graduated, yet I cannot decide on what I want to do for life. I know some people who knew since Junior High School, and here I am 21 years old, still lost.

So I stuck with creative writing.. even though my Father still thinks I’m studying Computer Forensics, “a job where [I] can make decent money.” I just know that I love to write. I love to read. I have never gotten bored with it and I know I never will. Is it so bad to end up actually liking your job when “you grow up?”

On a more awesome note… I am painting my new office purple, and have already found tons of antiques to fill it with! I’ll update with more pictures as I start to fill the room!!
