Hello!!!! I’m thrilled to be uploading a new Blog post for you guys today and I have a few stored up my sleeve for this week too!
Now before I begin, I want to preface this post as possibly sounding spoiled, unrealistic, and maybe even ignorant in some eyes. If you disagree with what I have to say, we can agree to disagree – that’s fine!
I currently work as a Sales Associate at Urban Outfitters, a trendy, chain retail store at one of the local malls. For me, this is a job that someone my age is normally working. I’d say for the most part, people my age are working minimum wage jobs and earning themselves some spending money. I am more than ok with my job at Urban, in fact I’d even go as far as to say I enjoy it. The environment is fun, co-workers are friendly and the pay is decent. This is the type of job that I am more than ok with working – at this time in my life.
However, as I continue my college studies and work toward a B.S and whatever else, I am looking at my future career with some pretty high expectations.
Like I said, to some, this might sound spoiled, unrealistic and even ignorant; but I am a firm believer in “choosing a job you love, and never having to work a day in your life”.
I’ve watched way too many adults in my life dread going to their place of work every. single. morning. and so I can’t help but hope my future is different.
I haven’t settled on the exact occupation for me, just yet. I don’t have a job description in mind, or a position that I’m grinding for. I just know that whatever I end up doing, I need it to be something that I genuinely enjoy doing.
With that being said, I know it takes time to get to that job, if ever. I know that as a fresh college graduate jobs won’t be handed to me and that I can’t just sit around turning down jobs that I don’t “feel like doing”. But I also know that I can’t spend the better half of my life doing something everyday that I can’t stand, and can’t wait to get away from. It’s just not worth it.
So, I hope at least some people found a positive takeaway from this post, and maybe even felt inspired to never settle. And for those who didn’t, I just hope you can see where I’m coming from.
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’re ready for some new posts!
