What Scares Me The Most

The unknowing is something we all have to encounter.

What Scares Me The Most

In life we all go through moments good or bad that the end result of those moments can really define who we are as a person. Every choice we make in life there are always two possible outcomes of success or failure. From things as simple as cooking a turkey, changing the oil, or something more difficult like buying a home. The scary part about life is that we don't know what's going to happen with the choices we may or may not make.

What scares me the most currently as any senior in college is the unknowing of where I am going to be in a year in the job department. Many sources suggest that only between ten to fifteen percent of college graduates have full-time jobs after they graduate, that is a very scary number in my opinion.

I am very proud to say that I am a student at Marquette University, I personally believe that just by having a degree from that school gives me a better chance to find a good job because of the prestige it has acquired since the day its doors opened. I am currently studying digital media and minoring in corporate communication, the things that I have learned over the course of my college career have truly helped me along the way.

The biggest dream that I have with what I have learned is to become a sports broadcaster. To me I couldn't think of a better job than to sit in a suit all day and talk about sports, of course, there is more to it than that but every day would be something different. Unless of course, LeBron James is playing or Johnny Manziel is doing something he shouldn't again. The point is ninety percent of the time the coverage is something different.

However, recently there has been a huge change in the world of sports for media. Many famous broadcasters are leaving their respected stations, employees are being let go due to finances or because technology is evolving thus making some jobs non-existent, or networks are changing meaning certain things aren't done the way they used to be.

I never question change because the bottom line is that change is inevitable, it is something that we all encounter and have to get through it. I am currently interning at a sports radio station in Milwaukee and I'm happy to say the short time I've been there I'm very happy with what I have been doing behind the scenes. The point I'm making is that I've accepted that I may never be a broadcaster. In the fields that I am studying in you learn multiple crafts because you may find that you're better at one thing then something else because in this line of work you don't know what you're going to end up doing. Of course, I'm not going to give up on my dream but isn't the point of life now to find a good job to help raise a family and to save your money so you can have fun when the time is right?

What scares me the most is the unknowing of where I will be in a year once I finally walk that stage to grab my degree. However, wasn't our entire lives up to any point unknowing?

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
