I'm ready!

Over the course of eight years I have gone from being a predental student to working in online advertising to my current position as an analyst for a healthcare consulting firm. By now I have completely gotten over the fact that my degree in plant and animal biology is completely useless in the real world. Do I regret it? Sometimes. What I regret most is sitting in my organic chemistry class in Spring 2003 knowing I was failing, wishing I were an English major so I could channel my thoughts onto paper, but refusing to do anything about it because I was too scared of judgment.

One thing I did gain from being a bio major at a highly ranked university is extremely thick skin. Sitting alongside premeds for four years was no easy feat, my friends. I've come a long way, and although I have A LOT to learn for the rest of my life, at this point I feel ready to take on one more industry.

For now photography is just a hobby - a hobby I enjoy above all the rest. If I one day find myself making a career out of my hobbies, gosh, I'd be happier than if I were to win the lottery! A lifetime satisfied with what you're doing; how awesome would that be?! Many have already questioned my commitment given my Tourettes-like behavior with career options, but I'm finally at the point where I'm not scared to be judged nor scared to fail.

One of the first photos I took with my snazzy new camera is of Saka moping on the bed because I'm not giving him enough attention.


PS. Thanks, Molly, for the photography book! It means so much to me. :-)
