What's Your Passion?
I realized this so long ago. The end of my junior year is when it all began, I hated my classes. But I had such great internships I stuck with it. After my sophomore year, I interned in Phoenix, Arizona. It was exciting to be across the country on my own, living in a beautiful condo that someone else paid for. However, let me tell you, Phoenix is no place for black folk! I got all dark, my hair was all dry and turned red...I was ugly and ashy! The summer after I was an intern at a Big 5 firm...yeah the one that went down with Enron..in Washington DC. I had a ball. Auditing took me to Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles, California all summer. Since graduation, I've traveled all over the country with my job, and I love to travel. However, now I'm a mommy and a wife it tends to be a little less exciting, I missed my family terribly.
If I had to do it over again, I would be an English professor or go into journalism. I love reading and I enjoy writing. I love the classics. From the great black authors of the Harlem Renaissance to F. Scott Fitzgerald to Zane to Hillary Clinton, I love books. All kinda of books. If I was to write columns for a living, obviously editorials would be my choice. I'm full of opinions!
I admire those people who get paid to do what they love. I also admire those folks that are good at what they do. What's your true passion? If you could do it all again, what would your dream job be?
