How badass is this video? How does that make anyone not want to jump up out of bed, head to the gym, then take over the world? So I have been kind of freaking myself out with my future and college and everything lately and have actually been feeling a little bit better about everything lately. I haven’t quite narrowed it down to a full proof 100% plan of action by any means yet but we all have to start somewhere, right?
Have A Lot of Time To Make Up For…
As you may have gotten the hint by now, I hated high school. No classes interested me and I never wanted to be there. How well I did in school paired with the amount of day dreaming I did is shocking. I went to places in my imagination on a daily basis that I didn’t even know existed. Have you ever found yourself day dreaming about saving the world, and all the hot women in the world, from an alien invasion single-handedly? Then you have not experienced true day dreaming my friend.
So logically, I should have taken all of this mindless dribble and used that time to really think about what I was learning and plan for college and my future. But who is mature enough in high school to actually be retaining everything they are learning? God knows I wasn’t (and still probably aren’t). I pretty much only went to school because my parents said I had to.
Alright So What Kind of Progress Are We Talking About Here?
Well I am starting to really think about my future now and have stopped intentionally bottling up all this fear I have and am trying to face this little life changing decision head on. When my family asks me what I want to be when I grow up and what I want to go so college for and my reply is always “I have no idea,” their reply is always, “well what are you interested in?”
Dude, I play World of Warcraft and watch Invader Zim. What the hell do my interests have anything to do with what kind of job I want to get? I guess I understand where they are going with the question but I really hate when people say that. 99.9% of people do not like their job. Sure, a lot of people can tolerate their jobs and it might be somewhat related to their interests, but I defy you to find me one person who would go to their job every day if they weren’t getting paid and money was not an issue. Yeah, I didn’t think so.
I have to admit though, this kind of is the question that got me rolling on this whole motivation thing. I am a video game nerd. And I mean a hardcore nerd. For any of you who don’t know what World of Warcraft is, you wouldn’t understand. It’s not a video game, it’s a lifestyle and only those who play know what I mean by that. But that is what got me thinking. If I have more of a passion for this video game than anything else really, why not try to pursue some kind of career in video game design?
This is the first time I have actually looked up information about a career that wasn’t for some dumb school project and I have to admit, I am a little intrigued.
The money can be great, you work with other nerds, and I can really let my creative mind wander like it so often did in school. If I have to go to college for something, why not steer in a direction somewhat related to what I love so much?
Stay tuned to see how long this little hint of excitement lasts before I end up hating the idea like every other job I have tried to think of. Hey, worst case scenario I can apply here at www.treeservicesdc.com and carry on my father and family’s legacy in the tree service business.
At least I have a plan B?
