I am a 16 year old senior in high school. People ask me all the time what my plans are and what I want to do. I often hesitate because my dreams are very different than the dreams of the people around me. I don’t want people to judge me or think I am stupid for going into an art field rather than something more traditional. For example, my sister is a nurse and one of my brothers is at Harvard. You read it right, he is at Harvard. Therefore, I just feel like I will never live up to my siblings’ accomplishments.
Four people in my family are nurses. I don’t want to be a nurse. I used to want to go into the medical field but then I realized I am a HUGE germaphobe and that could never happen. I want to do something different. I always have. I wanted to go to culinary school and then that changed. I always have different interests: I like cooking, music, fashion, art, etc. The one that has stuck with me is fashion.
I wish I had enough talent to design clothing but sadly I don’t. I would love to do anything fashion. I have thought about fashion journalism which would be absolutely amazing. That is the main reason I started this blog, just to get started somewhere. I would also go into fashion marketing or merchandising if I could. I just want to be somewhere I love. I want to come home from work and not be sick of my job. I want to wear the clothing I want. I want to be happy. I think that is the most important thing about a job. But what do I know?
So with all of this said, I want to go into the fashion industry. I have started to care less about what people think about it because it’s not their future, it’s mine.
This is what I want to do.
