Life update: I've started uni. I'm studying commerce and am going to major in PR and marketing. But you know what? I have this niggling voice in the back of my head. It repeats "what are you working towards?" "what do you WANT to do?". And I'm constantly answering: I DON'T KNOW!
But that's not true. I do know. I know that the ultimate goal is to open my own business. Whether it be a photography business, a coffee shop or whatever, that is my ultimate life goal. But I'm not in a rush. First, I want to experience working as a photographer for a company, or a social media manager for a company, or as a writer. and I KNOW, getting my bachelors degree will help me get there.
I'm writing this post to remind myself WHY I'm here, and WHY I'm studying and WHAT my goals are. My goals are to pursue my passions is a professional way, and the best way (for me) to get there is with the help of a degree.
I understand that for some people degrees are unnecessary, and I believe this more so if you're studying art subjects. You can teach yourself so much over the internet. But for me, personally, I want to have this commerce degree.
And I know that having a degree doesn't mean I'll be handed a job as soon as I'm done, I know it still going to take work and dedication. But I'm already working towards it. I'm volunteering with social media clubs and companies, I'm applying at jobs that are more in my field of interest. It all starts NOW! I'm already making steps to increase my social media following in an attempt to kickstart a photography company.
It's all a step by step process. And right now, a big step for me is University.
So, this post is to holding myself accountable. Don't forget your dreams, don't forget what you're working towards and remember to seize every opportunity you possibly can.
