I sit here thinking about typing this personal statement. I think about how it asks about what I think my future shall be. I think it’s a question that is better left unanswered until the appropriate time the question should be asked. I can only hope and pray for something but I cannot predict it with accuracy, and if you cannot predict something with accuracy, what’s the point of predicting it? I suppose however, that in this day of age, less people care about the accuracy of the prediction then the hype behind it. People seem to think, that either A) if someone predicts something, it must be true or B) the person is a total nutcase, and should probably be in a strait jacket with some “happy pills” in their system. There never seems to be a middle ground, and when someone suggests there is, they are social outcasts and given strange looks when out in public. I seem to be getting of topic, aren’t I?
If I must predict where I may be in the soon coming years of my life, regarded education wise, I would hope to well informed of the different arts of society that are so overlooked in today’s age such as theatre, and painting and all the other stuff. I also wish to have wide math knowledge, because apparently, math is pretty important in many jobs (although that’s just what I hear). But if worse comes to worse, those people predicting with accuracy about the “2012 Armageddon” are actual not brain dead and have some functioning brain cells left in that thing they like to call a “noggin”, then I’ll probably not even get far in life, cause I’ll then die at age 17. But, again, I truly cannot say that, cause there is so no proof that I heard of that makes this prediction accurate. And don’t say that’s when the Mayan calendar stops on that date, because that isn’t proof. How do we know that’s not when the guy making it just said “You know what? Forget this! I’m done”. Then the rest of the people were like “well I’m not making it.” And then it just never kept going. I’m getting off topic again.
My goal in life is to be a big time photographer, maybe work for national geographic, and make a decent living by just pressing a button. Geez, wouldn’t that just be the life? If not, there is another career that has peeked my interest. Actuarial science is a huge thing, and I had to study it in science class. It requires math skill ( which I have), I work alone( which means I wouldn’t have to work with any brain dead people who make inaccurate predictions ( it seems to always come back to this doesn’t it?)) and apparently it pays decent( $$$$$). But I’m still shooting for a photographer.
It I was to get into college, I would try a get a bachelor’s degree, maybe masters, but I’m not really sure. I would like to have as much knowledge and experience under my belt as I can without spending my whole life in school. School may be important, but it just makes me sleepy…
I’m sure where I’ll end up in, say, 10 years, but I do know a way to find out. Wait.
