Fall Semester? DONE! Finals? DONE! Grades? GOOD, but waiting on 1 more (curse you late teachers!)! Winter Break? Just beginning :) time to relax, chill, earn money, and have fun!
A lot of things have been going on in my life and now it’s time to relax and do what I want to do! Going on a family trip to Arizona, Utah, and Las Vegas so it should be a lot of fun for sure! Arizona for the beautiful red mountain view, Utah for the snowboarding, and Las Vegas for the bright lights and a great show at Planet Hollywood. So much on my mind and I have Tumblr to thank to express my feelings yay :D
Lately I’ve been thinking about what my future plans are and I think I have a pretty solid plan. I have my dreams and I have my goals to achieve and I know I can do it. Future job? A Civil Engineer for the government, either for San Diego county or State-wide; not exactly sure how it works yet…but I hear the “government” is always looking for engineers and I want to be one of them! It’s sad to hear that people have dreams and aspirations but can’t follow through because of the economy and the pay that their dream job holds, I wish something could be done but I highly doubt the answer will come through anytime soon. Besides being an engineer, I feel like I want to help people in some way; I feel like I want to be an inspirational speaker and try to lift spirits up of people who do not see the light we should all see. So many people fall down and just can’t seem to pick themselves back up, I want to be there to help them do so. Sure, I don’t go through as rough things as others do and I do understand that, but I feel like being that optimistic person to boost their feelings up would definitely help someone out. I hope I’m not sounding so conceited…my bad! But I do like to help people and set some kind of example for others. I always try to tell people to just look at the brighter side of things; there’s always a bright side, and if there doesn’t seem like one I’m pretty sure there is, even if it’s microscopic, it’s definitely something and can grow significantly. I got a 5 on the WPA, I didn’t see it coming at all and thought I would get at least a 8, but didn’t. Yeah I was mad and sad, but after a day I realized, yeah it sucks but hey I can take it again thank god! I failed Math150 2 times, took it 3 times total, failed Math151 once, took it 2 times total, and passed Math252 the first time! That took me a long time to finish but hey, I got it all done now and that’s what matters right? In total, that’s 6 semesters worth, luckily I took two of them in the summer, but still, two years to finish those? Yeah it’s a long time but damn I did it and can move on with my life! Each time I failed, hell yeah I felt like shit, hell yeah I hesitated and questioned myself, but you know what I never gave up and fucking finished that shit! If I did all that shit, then you can too! Don’t feel bad for too long, you can do whatever you want, you just gotta make sure you have your mind set on that goal and go for it.
I have my eyes set on having my life together within 10 years: have a stable engineering job, married to the love of my life, have a kid or two, live in a house or nice apartment, drive a Mazda Miata, and have a big smile on my face. I see myself in those shoes within 10 years, and when I finally reach that time I will look back to this day, smile, and say to myself: I said I would be here years ago, and look, I’ve done it. If you set your gaze onto your own vision, try your best and never look back, you will do what you want to do, and no one can stop you and nothing can block you from doing so.
I see myself in the future, I see myself with a dream, I see myself with a goal, I see myself succeeding in any aspect of life, and you should too. We are human and we have limits, but when we believe in ourselves and shoot for what we want, we can break them.
