I Found Myself (no pun intended)

I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up! This is good news considering how I've been dabbling in everything since forever. This epiphany came to me at approximately 5:50 this morning when I woke up to check my phone and visit the porcelain throne. When I came back in my room to lay down, all these ideas came rushing into my head, and then before I knew it, I was whisked back to sleep.

Who was the guy that said we had to pick one occupation and to do that one thing day in and day out for the rest of our lives? Well, whomever that guy is has another thing comin', 'cause I for one can't stand being told what to do. I'm a person of many talents. And like I've stated before, I'm destined for greatness. So, here it is, America. My occupations are:

  • Orthodontic Dental Assistant
  • Waitress
  • Blogger
  • Published Writer
  • Literary Editor
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • Videographer Editor
  • Artist
  • Hair Stylist
  • Baker specializing in cakes, cookies, pies, and cobblers
  • Painter
  • Wife and mommy (when that time comes)

Working in retail on and off for ten years changed me. It made me realize that I don't want to be stuck in some building working for some corporation making money for them, being told when to be to work, what time to clock in/out, what to do while I'm at said job, when I can take vacations, how to dress, how to do my hair, if and where I can get tattoos/piercings. I'm my own person. This is my life. My one time to be. Ain't nobody controlling what this body does at any givin' time. I'm on my own path. And for the first time in ten years, I'm finally at peace with myself.

I control my life. With that, I control my happiness.

My dad would be so proud.


  1. Good for you! Nobody needs to tell you what to do, following advice sure, but in the end what you decide to do is your choice alone. Do whatever makes you happy, not what just makes others happy.

  2. Stupid society. That's all. I refuse to be a corporate pupet.

    Thanks, A.
