How do you find that one thing you want to spend your life pursuing? I mean, it’s not something to take lightly. We go through high school being told that math, science, english, and every other class is important for our future. But, so far in University I’ve used next to no math, and the english I’ve used is completely different from what I was taught in HS.. How do you know what to chose? University offers so many classes and topics to study. Which one is best suited to you. I guess for some people it’s a clear choice. They know what they want, and how to get it. That’s their path in life, and it’s been laid out for them.
For the rest of us, it’s a gamble. You chose one thing, try it out, discover you don’t want to spend your life on that path, but then you’re back to square one. That’s where I am right now. Being a gym teacher is still very high on my life list. It’s something I’ve know I wanted to do for a long time. But so is Athletic Therapy. It intrigues me. Maybe that’s jusst because I spend so much time in that department anyway. But even this year, with the minimal kines classes I’ve had, I’ve become more intrigued in the topic. I haven’t ever been good with science, but this type I am alright at.. which is encouraging. Thankfully my major in Kines provides me with many of the same classes for both Ed, and AT.
And then there’s riding. I know that’s something I’ll be pursuing my whole life. There is no doubt there. All these other things are just getting in the way. That’s why I’m really hoping to get the opportunity to work at a barn in NZ so I can get a feel for what a career in the industry is really like. It’s something I’ve dreamed about for years on end. It’s my biggest passion, riding.
NZ will also give me, hopefully, and opportunity to figure out what I really want. A year off will refocus me, I hope. Or it will completely derail me. Both are possible.
Fail, win? Debatable!
PS Happy Bday Daniel Craig! 🙂
