Since this part of year is all about “changing” things, and in with the new out with the old, it’s got me thinking. A lot actually.
I’m thinking about changing my major, and if that’s not scary enough, switching schools, and if that’s not scary enough, going to school in a completely different state. With a completely different occupation in mind.
I’ve always been more of the free spirit, do as I please, go with the flow type of girl. It’s just who I am. If I don’t like school as much as I do right now, how in the world am I supposed to be there every day and teach it as a career? Those little kids aren’t gonna wanna be at school just as much as I don’t wanna be at school right now.
Ever since 9th grade, the first year I took Cosmetology, I’ve been hooked. I absolutely love it. I took classes for three years at my old high school- until I moved. They didn’t have it at my new school as an elective so I just stopped. That passion was still there, though. But all I had left to do with it was my friends’ hair/makeup or to practice on my own self. I’ve been thinking a lot about it (again) and so have my parents. What if I go to Cosmetology school? In Tallahassee? And become a hair dresser? At some cool salon? That sounds like my kinda future right there.
I’ve also been thinking about becoming a baker and owning my own bakery. A little cupcake bakery. I’d want it to be simple- but delicious as all get out. I bake almost every day, even if I don’t always eat it, someone does and they always eat every last bite. I’ve been told so many times lately they can see me being a baker.
Is this what God wants outta me? To be a Cosmetologist? I’ve always thought so, even in the back of my mind behind my “kindergarten teacher” dream. Or does God want me to become a professional Cupcake-er? Haha. With all of these ideas flying through my head, and my parents being so supportive of all of them, I just don’t know what God wants me to do. I’m starting to pray, and I know He has SUCH big things for me for the future. I just need to proceed with following His plan for my life, and continuing my (what could be) last semester at Valdosta State. I can’t wait to see where God takes me in 2012- how about you? :) Happy New Year, yall!
