Well, I'm feeling pretty damn optimistic today. My dad has been fueling(Or at least trying) the fire inside of me. He's been trying to get me to get out and do something positive in my life. To get started on the rest of my life. After all it's been around 3 since highschool and in those 3 years I havn't done a whole hell of a lot. Except I did work this past summer I was buying/selling used video games, consoles, hockey cards, and Pokemon cards (Remember them?). I was selling at a couple of flea markets a week. I made a good amount of money(compared to the 0 dollars I was making before) and I enjoyed it but it's an unreliable job(Money-making wise) and it's self-employment.
My parent's have been patient with me and by no means are they pushing me to go do anything I don't want to do. My dad's just telling me about these opportunities I have in front of me now. I mentioned in another journal entry a week or so ago about this this workshop that I was going to do. Well, I thought I was gonna do it right away but I actually gotta talk to this woman who works there first. I met her today and she seemed really nice. I made an appointment to see her next week and then we'll talk about my options. Whether I want to do this job workshop that will help me figure out what I should be doing. Or if I want to go to college or take some other courses/workshops.
The thing is I know she's gonna ask me what I want to do for a career and I'm really not sure. I've said it a million times that I want to work with animals but I don't know even really know what specific job. All I know is that I'm quite confident I don't want to go to a traditional college. Like taking english courses and such. Uggg...NOT for me. I can't do that. I can't sit in a classroom learning about things I have limited interest in. And staying up all night studying and crap. I couldn't do it. Now, if I was to take a course on taking care of animals or grooming or something I could stand it. But I could not go through years and years of school to become a Vet. I just couldn't stand it. I have all the respect for someone who could do that to become a Vet, teacher, doctor, ect. But I just couldn't. But who knows what I'll end up doing when all is said and done. I guess I'll have to wait and see till next week and beyond:)
Also, just before I press submit. I'm most likely going to be taking the bus all alone downtown to go to said appointment. Which is kind of scary considering we just moved here and I have NO knowledge of this area. So it should be fun. Anyways, I'm sorta hoping I do have to go it alone because I'd like to make a stop at a major bookstore and hopefully get Keeping You A Secret. I'd LOVE to finally be able to read it after everyone has praised it so much. I guess we'll see. Here's hoping that I get it:D
