I May Not Know What I Want To Do Now, But That's Fine, Because It's MY Future

I May Not Know What I Want To Do Now, But That's Fine, Because It's MY Future

Always be the one to take charge and never give up on something you love.

It may be a struggle, trying to please yourself.

But it's more of a struggle to please everyone around you. It's like you have the expectations from each individual in your life and you try so hard to live up to them, even if it's something you don't want to do.

My parents are split up and both have completely different expectations from me, especially with my future career. My dad wants me to go to nursing school because they make good money. He thinks I would enjoy and be good at it and also he doesn't want to see me struggle in life the way he did. But, my mom on the other hand, doesn't think I would like it or be good at it. She wants me to go into business and become successful in that career field.

To be honest, I don't even know what I want to do. Sometimes you feel like you aren't smart enough to do one thing or you don't really have an interest in another thing that someone wants you to do.

My boyfriend wants me to do nursing because of the money. He's thinking about getting into the medical field and thinks I should, too, because it is a great field to get into. I would love to get into nursing but I always get that feeling that maybe I'm not smart enough to do it.

With that being said, my parents want what's best for me. I know that they want me to be successful and to pursue a career in what I would love to do. It's hard trying to make everyone happy, but you have to make yourself happy and figure out what you want to do in your life. You don't want a job where you will just hate going there everyday and are only there for money. My dad told me that if I found something I love to do, I could make a career out of it.

Your life starts with you and your decisions. Always be the one to take charge and never give up on something you love.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

What I'm looking forward to over winter break.


With winter break being just around the corner, I can't seem to stop myself from compiling a list in my head of all the things I want to do when I get home for break! Although being away from 'Cuse and my friends for a whole month is going to be hard, I am so excited to go home!

Here are a few reasons why...

1. Seeing my dog, Lexie.

I miss this girl more than anything. I cannot wait for a month full of snuggles and walks around the neighborhood. She always cheers me up and puts a smile on my face and it's been so hard to be away from her.

2. Home-cooked meals.

Graham dining hall gets old pretty damn quick. I'm so excited to sit down at my kitchen table with my family and eat a comforting and delicious home-cooked meal because nothing tastes better than your mama's cooking.

3. Sleeping in my own bed.

My bed at home is by far the easiest hello and the hardest goodbye. I can't wait to cozy up in my bed and be able to actually stretch out and relax.

4. Seeing my family (of course)!!

The fact that my mom, dad, brother, sister, and I are all going to be reunited over winter break warms my heart. With my siblings both as college graduates and me as a current college student, it is so hard to find time where we all can be together, so the time where the 5 of us get to be together is something that I truly cherish.

5. Seeing my high school friends.

I am so excited to see my high school friends, many of whom I haven't seen since August! I can't wait to start from right where we left off and fall back into old times!

6. Driving.

To say that I miss driving and the ability to go places whenever I please is an understatement. I am so ready to not have to #UberEverywhere.

7. A belated Hanukkah celebration!

Hanukkah fell early this year so it will already be over by the time I get home. Fortunately, my family decided to celebrate Hanukkah when we're all together, so I'm not missing out on any candle-lighting, dreidel spinning, or latke eating!

I wish you all happy holidays and a great new year!
