The Stress of Growing Up

So today I put on my big girl pants (or polka-dotted dress) and went to The Times office to job shadow. It seems that since I was a pre-teen reading J-14 or YM I have wanted to work for a magazine. As you all know, I am in love with anything fashion related, and although working for Seventeen isn’t as noble as joining the Peace Corps. or spending my life being a doctor in a third world country, this dream job of mine is what I believe would make me the happiest. And as we all know…





Although I have these aspirations of living in a big city and working for some wonderful television company or magazine, I know that there is a plan for me, which may or may not end in me achieving these particular dreams. I am very uncertain as to where my life is supposed to go right now. All I know is that discovering who I am meant to be is going to require a lot of trial and error and daily prayer, but I have faith that I am going to find where I belong in this world. I am confident that I have a lot to offer; I just wish my 19 year old self knew where I was supposed to go! Whoever said there was fun in discovering who you’re supposed to be was wrong (in my opinion). I just feel stressed….
