For my video podcast I would like to talk about how it is okay not to know exactly what you want to do with your life but that the important thing is to actually live your life. I will show examples of my photography, equipment as well as design. I want to make it as me as possible and that is being quirky and vivacious. The video that I found for my inspiration is posted at the bottom. The thing I really like about it is that the young man really shows his personality and is himself. I however did not like how bland it was. It was just him sitting there with no visual elements. I want to add my personality to this video as well as add effects such as text, pictures and possibly animations. I think that this video will connect with many other people as well as show my personality to future employers more. It will “give a face” to the author of the site and help readers connect with me.
Something that has been on my mind as of late has been the idea of a “quarter-life-crisis.” I recently just had my 24th birthday and I almost had a little panic attack. Being 23 is not that different from 24, but for some reason it just felt so much scarier than my previous year. But soon after my mini, “holy cow I’m almost a quarter of a century old” moment, I have realized a lot of things.
Sticking to the fact that I am an upbeat and happy person, I allowed myself just this small “holy cow” moment. After that I started counting my blessings and realizing all the good I have done thus far in my life. I have come to realize that I am actually in a pretty good place in my life even if I am not where others my age are at the moment. Many of my friends have gotten married and are on to having their second child. Many have graduated or traveled the world. And here I am still, a single college student just going through life with the wind at her back. And you know what? I actually love it. I love being able to go to classes and to learn. I love challenging myself. This wasn’t always the case though. For some time I didn’t know what I wanted to do and it made it harder.
A few years ago after searching out different options for a major I finally found the one that made me feel like I actually belonged and that fit so perfectly I felt foolish for not discovering it earlier. I found the Business and Communications program and have absolutely adored school ever since. After making that decision I have been able to have lot of different opportunities and my future decisions have been narrowed down for me more and more.
Stay tuned to see the final product. If you have any feedback of your own “holy cow” moments, or simply would like to share how you are blessed, please comment in the feed below!
