The Future

While I know it is not possible in the near future, I would love to own a business some day. My dream is that I could open up a gallery or just a quirky shop with handmade items from local artisans and artists. I'd also like to offer beginner classes in different mediums and an art kids camp in the summer. I think art is one of the most important things in a person's life, whether it be visual arts, music, acting, dancing, etc. I would obviously like to deal with the visual arts because that is what I know best, but I think it would be great to have a space where anyone can put up advertising for whatever art they participate in.

I do not know if I am meant to work for someone else my whole life or that I am cut out for managing my whole life. Sometimes I think I'm too laid back for it, but I guess we will see.

So does anyone want to join in this venture with me?

Taking back my life

I have made a commitment to take back my life.

I once had a very wise advisor tell me to study what I like, and not worry about what career I will have after I graduate. She explained that it was not good to make what you love your job because it will consume your life. I think this is exactly what my old job did. It consumed my life and everything that I knew. My job was me and I was my job.

Now that that chapter is behind me, I am going to work on reviving my life...
