I am sure there are many many of you guys out there who are or have currently felt the way I am feeling right now. I have spent my whole life so far in education, following the path laid out for me, not really ever thinking about deviating from it. Now I have 3 months left, 3 months before I graduate (still we hope), the parents are happy, the nans happy but then that leaves me. What do I actually want to do? I have been thinking about this ALOT, I can go down the what will be most practical to secure me a good future path, OR I can actually go and do something which may not necessarily make me a millionaire but will without doubt make me happy.
This is something that has only recently just hit me. Although turning 21 and feeling like a grandma, I am still so incredibly young and by gosh if i want to spend a year painting on the beach or dancing in America whilst having to work overtime in a bar to afford it – then I gunna. I have just had the sudden realization that although my life is great – it really is – I don’t feel as though I have been truly living (deep). I spend each day at uni listening to my music choreographing dances, and when it comes to writing my assignments i will spend the whole day painting and then cram an assignment into the last two hours. Being rich and successful is no longer my priority right now, I want to go and really enjoy what I do and enjoy my life – So if you see any of my art for sale or If i end up dancing as street performer in Covent Garden – Help a girl out.
Follow your dreams guys because life is too short, like me, HA HA HA
