I have a confession. I don’t know what I wanna be when I grow up. 🤷🏼♀️
I want to work in an environment I enjoy and with amazing people. I want to help people, but I’m not sure how exactly. I have been feeling really discouraged with myself on why I just don’t know what I want to do. I want to feel passionate about my work and I want to leave a positive impact on the world. But what can I do that checks all of those boxes? .
I have a BS in forensic science and a minor in sociology. After completing my internship in forensics, I decided that I just wasn’t passionate about it. However, I did really enjoy the classes I took on deviant behavior, childhood delinquency, prisons, and some of the other criminology courses I took for my sociology minor. Sometimes I think about doing social work, but I don’t necessarily feel really drawn to that either. .
I genuinely enjoy bartending. I love the creativity behind crafting cocktails. I love the interactions I have with guests. I love forming lasting relationships with guests. I love being able to create the vibe of the atmosphere by just being...well myself. However, in my heart I don’t feel drawn to do that forever.
Honestly, I am all over the place right now. I’ve been wanting to go back to work full time for a while, but life for us has been a little hectic. Now with COVID closing down the economy, there’s so many uncertainties. When things open back up I hope to find work that calls to me. .
Those of you who know me, what are your thoughts. What do you think I should be when I grow up? 🤷🏼♀️
