Where do you work?
As many of you might know or maybe you don't, it's okay. I haven't had a job in over a year. I'm basically just cruising around and making the most of our time on this island. For a while, I use to work retail and during each move, it gradually became a task. Just another thing to get through during my day. In the end, it just became miserable with very little pay and just wasn't worth it. After that I had an internship, but after 6 months that fell through.
What's your degree in?
I majored in Sociology/Culture Anthropology, which you already know that this doesn't scream a whole lot job opportunities, unless you get your masters. And that wasn't something that I was strongly thinking about pursuing.
What do YOU want to do?
If you've been following my blog then you know that I want to start my graphic design business and work from home. I've never been the career-oriented person, my interests change so much and I'm just constantly moving with the tide. And you can guess, that that makes me an indecisive person. My original plan upon moving here was to enroll in school for graphic design; I had this thought that the community colleges around here would offer an associates program for it, but I sure was wrong. They have classes, but no program, unless I wanted to get another degree. And financially, that was not an option. I looked into uncredited classes to no avail.
It's still the plan to pursue what I really want, but it's just been on the back burner. For now, I just mess around and do little graphic design for personal use. Most of the time, I'm constantly learning from fellow bloggers, grabbing inspiration from anywhere and everywhere; basically gaining more knowledge.
In a sense, it's been great to have an open schedule. I've had the opportunity to truly explore this island and create so many memories with some great people. I've been able to continue to play volleyball, which has been my passion for most of my life. And I've been able to spend time with my family; near and far. With our time on the island becoming less and less as each day passes, there's this infinite list of things to do before we (maybe) eventually leave this island.
To the critics, it just seems that I need to get my life together and figure out what I want to do, but if you knew who I really was, I'm quite happy with the life that I have. I have my dreams and ambitions, and you can bet your lovely self that I will achieve them all. For now, it's just taking time, but everything in life shouldn't have a timestamp on it.
Live in the moment and do what makes you happy.
