Sometime in the deep dark past we all claim to have, is a dream we all wish to acquire. The desire to pursue our passion and find some way to claim it as our career. Personally, I would choose to travel. I find it to be an exhilarating experience; riding to a new place in search of a cultural experience obtained only through delving into the history and customs of an area. However, the question arises of how to obtain this dream and I believe I have found the best solution. After obtaining a degree, I plan to save up enough money until I can buy a ticket to somewhere where I would be able to get a job and start the process of saving enough to travel to a new place again. Though this may seem fleeting and unstable, I believe this could be the true way to see the world. As for the desire we all have to leave an impact, I intend to document these adventures, whether it be via Youtube, magazine, or book. One belief I have always had is that if you publish something, someone will see it and be changed by your work. Somehow, what you made could become a shining glimmer of hope that one days sparks the beautiful creativity someone has locked away in the depths of their mind. Inspiring that one person, well, it’s not changing the world all at once, but it’s a step in the right direction.
