my friend chia-pei
what i am trying to get at here, the point of the story, is to use your time in college (with all its' glory of being free of the parentals) to figure out who you are. now some of you may laugh and think to yourself, 'i already know who i am! i'm going to grow up and become a __(insert desired career here)__.' but just take a moment and consider if this is what you really want. is it your dream or your parents'? is it what you want because of what you'll probably get paid? because i can tell you here that there is no point at all spending almost every day for years on end, doing what you don't love. chase your passion and take risks. i wanted to become a photographer so, so badly and i thought there was no way that it would ever happen. but i learnt that almost always, you have to go out there and actively look for what you want. i got asked to become a paid photographer for one of the best model agencies in washington because i went out there and emailed the agent first. if you want something, then know that (as scary as it may be) you are the one who should take the first step.
