Upon graduation from Alabama I started going through a strange, unsure, sensation. Life as I knew it since age 5, was about to change. The thought of jumping into a full-time job at the age of 23 somehow frightened me. It seemed as though taking the corporate life route would essentially be sticking one foot in the grave. Immediately, as if I were pulling the magic mega million ping pong ball numbers for the lottery, I began filtering through my list of things I wanted to accomplish with my life. Now was the time and season of life to do whatever I wanted.
At the top of that list was acting. Ever since I was in the 10th grade I wanted to move to Los Angeles and try out acting. In high school I was very involved in theatre but in college my interest were set on my college and campus ministry as well as rowing.
Alas my time has come, I moving to LA! It has been a long process that is still not complete. I had an apartment lined up with a great price and location, but naturally they backed out on me. Two months later I am very fortunate to have a sub-lease for the month of December in the location that I want to be in. It is just for the month but I am confident that it will be ample time to find another place to live and/or roommate and a job. Stay tuned for more updates on how things are shaping out. I am very excited!
So I finally graduated in December of 2009! Didn't think that would be coming any time soon! I graduated with a Degree in Public Relations (from the #1 Undergrad PR program in the US) and a double minor in Psychology and Photography.
This past term I worked as an intern at my church and also at a gym in town. It has been great not being in school for the first time since 1992. Now that the Spring term is over and the normal graduations have happened, its all starting to sink in. Friends are getting married, moving off, and starting careers (at least attempting). What happened? I just declared my major a year and a half ago and now everything is changing. Now that I am "grown-up," I am now 23 with a degree and its time to start life. What that means, will be the new journey.
