I’ve had a bit of trouble thinking of careers I would like to explore for the Road Trip Nation project.
I think that I would like to know more about a clinical psychologist since that is my career of choice lately. It seems like a rewarding field to work in but I also fear that it could weigh heavily on someone who isn’t emotionally strong enough.
I would also like to look into what it’s like to work for a company called Greenpeace. Greenpeace is a direct action environmental organization that does different things to help protect our Earth. I subscribed to their email newsletters a while back and have been pretty interested in them since then. If you haven’t ever heard of them, you should definitely check them out! I will leave a link for their website. I’ve become pretty passionate about protecting our environment and the animals that we share our earth with so I think it would be cool to get an idea of what it’s like to work for a company has the same values.
It was hard to pick THREE things I value most because there are truly so many things that are important to me But when it came down to choosing, I did it fairly quickly. My top three values: Creativity, Wit/humor, and Independence.
Creativity was a pretty easy choice for me actually. I am the happiest when I am being creative.. whether it’s writing something, doodling something, or crafting something I feel so at peace and happy! I think I get that from my mom. She’s the most creative person I know and can work WONDERS, I mean wonders, with a paint brush and a blank wall. I like finding other people who are creative and like to think creatively. There are so many things you can produce and accomplish.
I value wit and humor because I love to laugh and appreciate when someone can get a good chuckle out of me. I also like making other people life.. it’s like a high.. you feel good because you’ve made someone else feel good. It’s awesome. Think about life without laughter.. awful, right?
And lastly, independence! I like to think that I am an independent person.. then I think of all the people I have been (and still am) dependent on for big things and little things. When it comes down to it though, the only person I depend on to make me happy is myself! And I think that makes me independent enough. People everyday are dependent on drugs, alcohol, and other people to make them happy and that’s a dark and scary way to live. I am thankful that I was raised and have made a decision to be the only person in control of my happiness.
As for my passions.. I’m not really sure what I’m passionate about. There are a few small things: animals, art, photography, food, and language. But really the only big thing I’m passionate about is life.
