I haven’t updated in a while so my apologies to all those who keep up with my blog. Life has been moving very quickly and I have been going through some major changes from within.
I’m in my last year of college and trying to figure out what is going to happen to me once I graduate. I just want to be a storyteller and entertain people all around the world. I’m working every single day at my craft whether I’m writing something or brainstorming for the next project. But right now, my dreams feel so far away and yet so close. I don’t want to work a 9-to-5 for the rest of my life. I don’t feel like that’s what God has for me and so I’m interested to see what happens to me once I get my degree. I figure my life has never been in shambles before and so why should it be now?
Speaking of writing, I’m in the midst of doing the biggest research paper of my life aka my thesis. I have to pretend like I’m a scholar for several months and write an original paper all by myself. It’s been mildly intimidating but since I love what I’m doing, I’m enjoying the process overall. Learning about cultural history and how it influences literature may not be interesting to some but I’m deeply passionate about it.
Because I’m writing with both my career and diploma in mind, my fixation on love has definitely devolved into an after thought. It’s not that I’m busy or won’t make the time because I’d make the time for any man who was worth it. But I’m so future-oriented that I don’t want anyone or anything distracting me from my purpose, even romantic love. A thing transpired in the wrong timing is disastrous and I can’t handle something that would consume me. I’d rather wait since that’s what I’ve been doing anyway.
I’m just in a really good place right now, folks. Everything seems to be going so well for me and I remind myself every day how blessed and grateful I am.
