My One True Passion

I was thinking earlier and came up with this thought: "If I could give the world one thing, I would give everybody or the world..." and that's as far as I got. I know what I would give the world, but I can't put it into words. I want to give the world passion. I want everybody to experience what I'm feeling right now. I know that I don't always give myself the credit that I deserve and today may or may not be one of those times. In my art class at school, we recently learned how to draw using contour lines (for those of you who don't know, it's one line that creates a picture) without looking. We eventually moved on to looking while we were drawing the contour lines. After about a week of contour lines, we got to pick our best drawing on the newsprint and use a light table to trace it onto white paper. From there, we cut our our picture, outlined every little piece onto various pieces of colored paper, cut out those pieces, then glued them all onto one piece of background paper. I looked at my finished project today and felt as if I could have done a better job. It kind of hurt. Then I got home and showed my mom and siblings a picture of the final project. They loved it! I was blown away and realized that I don't have to be perfect. I just have to be me and try my best. I have learned so much from my art class this semester and I can't wait to see what else I'll learn from this class. It's super exciting to know that I have six classes like this next year. I'm even starting to realize that I DO need certain skills that I'm learning in this class that I wouldn't learn in another art class and I'll need all the tools and resources available to me to be successful. This is my one true passion. Yes, I love reading, writing, and all of the other classic school subjects (for the most part). That doesn't change the fact that I am determined. Determined to succeed, to be creative, to achieve my dreams. I WILL get a job with graphic design, I WILL start my own advertising company, and I WILL be happy with who I am and what I'm doing. This isn't some crazy random thought, this is something that I have had serious thoughts about and what I want to do. What is your one true passion? What are you going to do with your life? It's a lot to think about, but you'll be able to find it. :) I'll be back soon! ~ Saved Individual

  1. That is the most amazing thing i have ever heard. Good job for wanting to follow your dream. If you keep working at it, and with a little hard work and determination, you will soon achieve your goal.
