When I was 5 years old, I decided to become a singer
When I was 8 years old I decided to be a writer.
When I was 17 years old I decided to be a journalist.
I often think am I making the right decision? It's only human to acknowledge the choices you're making in your life, the problem starts when you begin over analyzing-everything. Initially when I made the decision to go to school for journalism, I approached it as if journalism is the only thing I'll ever be allowed to do,for the rest of my life which obviously isn't true. I always assumed that your career makes up about 90% of your life, but life is so immense,unpredictable and random something like a career decision you make your freshman year of college is not the end all, be all for your life.
The relief I felt when I acknowledged that life isn't just one straight shot road. Many different avenues,choices,friends you make,people you meet, things you do,opportunities you face can lead you into different places you never even imagined. I plan on becoming a journalist and making all the necessary steps in doing so, but I'm also going to acknowledge anything can happen along this path and embrace life's randomness.
