A friend recently suggested to me that I start my own business. I would love to...but how to narrow it down?
I had such a hard time picking a career field. When I was young I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer and go to FIDM. Then, after researching, I decided motherhood and fashion designing don't really mix. Unless your Kimora Lee Whatever. So, I decided to follow another passion and pursue writing. Then, when picking an English emphasis, I picked one that would allow me to work from home and incorporate my love for design and art as well. My Tech Writing major suited me well, perfectly. But I went through like four different minors: Art, then Creative Writing, then Art again, and finally settling on Instructional Technology. (My classes included Photoshop, Flash, etc.)
I graduated and have written articles and content for a teen rehabilitation center (probably my favorite job) and managed websites for four years. I like my job, but I feel like something's missing. I'm pretty sure it's writing, creativity. If I had my wish I would be the following all at once:
- Advice Columnist
- Professional Blogger
- Fashion Magazine Editor
- Cake Decorator
- Toddler Ballet Instructor
- Interior Designer
- Fashion Designer
- Hat Maker (which I guess fits into Fashion Designer)
- Wedding Planner/Party Planner
- Graphic Designer
On a side note: Last night I dreamed that my boss asked Danielle and me to share our menstrual cycles on the office calendar. He just wanted to be "in the know." Weird.
Side note #2: Notice how I said me, not I? Let's talk about today's grammar lesson. When unsure about using I or me, or similar pronouns consider the following helpful tip: Omit the other person from the sentence. For example: Last night I dreamed that my boss asked
Another example is: Spencer and I went shopping. Not: Spencer and me went shopping. Why? I went shopping. Not: Me went shopping. Ta Da.
Side note #3: All adverbs should end in ly. Example: It was really fun. Not: It was real fun.
