The Future

A lot has been going on in my life. The ups, downs, and all arounds, have been taking a toll on me. A little over 4 months from now I will be a college graduate and once again entering into the unknown.

The future is something that truly scares me, especially being an artist. I love art, I love being an artist, but the career path for artists is very hard, still to this day. I see a lot of people now-a-days don’t like the career they are in, or the degree they have did nothing for them. Shit like that really scares me because that’s not the life I want to live. I’ll be at work and just thinking to myself, I can’t keep doing this much longer because this is not fun. I don’t ever want to get stuck here at Nordstrom because this place is not for me. I’ll be walking around while grocery shopping and just think to myself, damn, I hope I don’t end up pushing carts or bagging groceries for the rest of my life.

In four months I enter into a brand new chapter once again and its scary. I don’t ever want to live my life being a failure.
