I think sometimes as students, we forget that we don’t always have to struggle and hate what we do. We’re told frequently that we need to do something that will allow us to have solid prospects for a bright future after we’re done university. The four years of our undergrad are consistently filled with “So, what are you going to do after you graduate?”. As someone who double majors in two of the most commonly-dubbed “useless” subjects (English and History), I get asked constantly what my goal is for after I finish up with my degrees. Real talk: I don’t have a definite answer, I have no idea what I’m going to do, even though I’m finishing up my first semester of my third year. But I’m doing what I love: as cheesy as this sounds, there is not much I love more than curling up with a book or good historical article, or finding the perfect source that fits better into my essay like a puzzle piece.
This doesn’t apply to just your school life. Wherever you choose to work, whatever you choose to do with your spare time, be in love with it.
So let’s do what we love, and love what we do.
‘Til next time,
