My Career Path

My Career Path

My career goals have been like a very intense game of pin-ball, bouncing off a handful of exciting options to chose from. Now as I've grown and matured over the years my need to play around with the fate of my aspirations have come to a stand still, one of which I've finally come to the conclusion of my career path for the future.

As a senior in high school I'm ready to announce my plans for the future (as every college has already forced me decide way back in September when deciding a major), I will be studying Psychology in hopes to become a Psychologist, School Counselor or even double up with an education degree and end up teaching psychology myself. I discovered my love of the human mind and the reactions people have to the obstacles in front of them early on in my high school career as I pondered the importance of balance and emotions. Over the years I have also witnessed many cases of mental illness around me and instead of feeling powerless I want to be able to offer a helping hand and solution to the hurting people in the world.

For the education degree aspect I mentioned earlier, I do find myself interested in teaching since a very young age, but it is the lack of positions that causes me to stray away from fully pursing a career in that field. Potentially I do see myself choosing to teach Psychology in a school or even doubling my major to teach English and council on the side. If I chose to follow the teaching field and school environment I will also look into becoming the director of my very own high school drama club. This passion is fueled by the good memories and development that I faced in my many years in theatre.

No matter what I chose to follow in my future I know that I have what it takes to flourish and succeed in life because I am driven and optimistic.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.

Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
