A friend recently told me “ITS NO SHAME NOVEMBER!” I have never thought of November this way but I thought to myself hell yeah it is. I for one am tired of feeling embarrassed by my weirdness or my YouTube videos. Life is too short to worry about what other people think of you. Of course it will be a constant struggle to overcome that fear of embarrassment but I am going to strive to abolish that fear and you should too.
I have been discontent with a lot of aspects of my college life so far. This led me to neglecting my blog and YouTube Channel and just not put my best foot forward in college in general. I keep complaining that I am not getting a lot out of college so far but, part of the reason is that I am not striving intensely towards anything else right now. I have also realized that I am not giving my 110% to anything and that is why I am not feeling satisfied I have so many goals but I am not pursuing any of them yet and that is where I went wrong. I want to give my 100% towards this blog, school, YouTube, starting a business, fitness, and any other opportunities that come my way. I want to do so many things with my life and I can’t do anything 50% of the way if I want to get there.
Tell people your goals without shame; they might laugh now, but they won’t be laughing once you reach it. People always ask me what I want to do when I’m older and I always reply “I don’t know” because i literally want to do a million things. Sometimes I’ll say “Well… I want to work at Buzzfeed somewhere along the lines and eventually have my own business.” While that is true I also want to do some acting, filmmaking, marketing, make my own clothing, and the list goes on. I think that is what makes college so hard for me because I have no set thing I want to major in and because of that I don’t think I’m getting the most out of college. I’ve realized I’m going to have to teach myself and do my own research on a lot of the things I want to learn because of all the limitations on classes I can take and the amount of things I want to learn but, nonetheless I am excited for what the future holds.
