The Future

Hey guys, long time no post.
Here's a topic that I have been thinking about a lot lately: the future. If you weren't already aware, I am going into my senior year of highschool after summer. This is both extremely exciting and overwhelmingly terrifying. My idea of what I want to do after highschool changes daily. I still am not quite sure what I want to do with my life, but I'm sure of some things that I don't want to do.

At school, I am in a lot of computer classes. I was told I was good at those and that I should really be pursuing a career in computer science. I have been convincing myself for probably 2 years now that that was what I wanted to be: a programmer, engineer, computer specialist of some kind.

So when we got our time tables yesterday and I found I didn't have all the courses I needed to get my Specialist High Skills Major in Computer Science, I was a little bit upset. But the more time I spent looking through my options and courses to fill up next year's schedule, the more I realized that I was pursuing something that I didn't really want. I looked through all the other courses and realized I wished I had taken them this past year (drama, art, writers craft; things that I actually love doing) instead of focusing only on the computer courses I needed for a future I wasn't completely happy with.

So today I'm going to do something kindof scary. I went through my schedule and changed most of my courses. I dropped my co-op (which was required for my high skills major), took math instead of my computer science course, and I also signed up for Writer's Craft and Grade 11 Drama. As far as I know, this will eliminate the possibility of me getting my Specialist High Skills Major at all.

However, with every closed door, a new one opens.

I can now work on my creative abilities at school and home, therefore doing what I love whenever I can and building myself a future in the creative industry. I no longer have to worry about doing a co-op and getting extra courses that I don't love just to get my High Skills Major that I will most likely not use anyways.
Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the computer courses, but I am passionate about writing, entertainment, painting, all things creative, and when it comes down to it, this is MY future and MY happiness, and passion is what matters most in achieving a happy future.

So I am going to drive to school and sort out my new courses. I am going to work my butt off and have the most fun, fulfilling, successful senior year I can possibly have.
And after that, who knows? I'll go to university or college for creative industries. Maybe I'll end up in New York working in fashion, or California working with entertainment (and maybe I'll even stop by Google and do some techy stuff while I'm there? ) but the most important part of the choices I'm making right now?

I'm going to be happy :)
