on growing up

i've been  contemplating
 what life will be like
after college. 
what  my  next step will be
in this adventure
we call 
the general expectation:
pursue a career as a music teacher.
but day after day, 
i realize this might not be exactly what i want to do,
right out of college.
don't get me wrong, 
i love music.
 i love teaching music.
but there are also many other areas
that hold my interest,
 that i love.
ever since traveling to India in 2008
i've had a passion 
for helping those who have been victims
of social injustices.
social injustices 
such as human trafficking.
i have some ideas
of ways that i could help those
who have been victimized .
ideas that involve music.
ideas that would involve
going back to school
and studying 
and studying
and studying some more
for a degree 
much different
than the one 
i'm working towards now.
for now though,
all i can do 
is dream of the future,
of the different 
paths and doors
that will (hopefully) open
in the next year or so,
be thankful
for the opportunities
and  blessings
i have in this country
and enjoy
the last few days
i have  here at school
studying music.



  1. Now is the time for you to follow your dreams and pursue your passions. You'll always have your education, but you may not always have the opportunity to do what is important to you.

  2. i say go for your goals before you start a career. Its hard to go back once you start. :)

  3. Enjoy being in school now. Once your done it is a whole other story. Sounds like you have some amazing dreams in store for you. You go girl.

  4. Hello from The TT Diaries your newest follower from the weekend blog walk. I agree that you should enjoy school as long as you can. And do not feel obligated to do anything you are not ready to do. If it is on your heart to help those who have suffered I think you should by all means help them. Good Luck :) and God Bless.
