Since I've moved to Toronto, I feel a subtle change within me. I've been feeling the need to be me again. To do what I'm interested in. To meet people I want to be friends with. To do what I want to. To be who I think I am.
I feel more motivated here. I feel like...like I'm able to pursue the things I believe in. As you can probably guess, I'm really into blogging, writing and social media. I don't know what all this started happening, somewhere in college I think, but it stuck. And I happen to be pretty good at it. So when I decided that it would be my career path, I knew that there would be some judgement to push through, some stipulations to manage, some confusion, on society's part not mine.
I know it's not really a conventional choice but it's becoming more and more prevalent in my career field. It all began with journalism. I left theater randomly one day and decided that journalism was my path. And I love it. I love finding facts, seeking truths and sharing them. But man it's a hard world out there! So slowly, I turned from journalism and to blogging, social media and the fun stuff. But as of late, I want to go back to journalism. I want back into that club.
Maybe it's the 4 episodes of The Newsroom that has spurred something deep down and I honestly don't care how I got this motivation, I just got it. I've spent so much time keeping quiet, not sharing my thoughts or feelings and being slightly shy when people ask me what I'm all about. I am about writing. I am about social media. I am about journalism. I am about life.
I think people see "social media" and think I enjoy playing Farmville on Facebook all day. Boy, are you wrong! It's the new frontier, my friend! Get on the boat!
On that note, I've decided that if I want this, if I really want this and if I believe in myself, I will make it happen. Today marks a new day, kids. I am taking my life into my own hands and making it into what I want it to be. I don't care if I'm not supported, I will get there. I am smart, I know what I'm doing and I need to stop cutting myself short.
That's all I have right now. I think I'm subconsciously taking a break from blogging right now. I've been spending a lot of time reading, both books and the news. I'm starting to feel empowered again. I'm starting to feel challenged again.
