Throughout my childhood, I was constantly being asked the question: "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
I was inconsistent with my responses then and continue to be now. Because as I grow, experience, and continue to find myself, my interests and hobbies constantly change. Throughout my everchanging answers, one thing has always remained the same. My main goal is to never work.
I hear "work" and immediately feel dread. The connotation I have with such a common noun is nothing short of tragic. It's a fear of mine, to work. I'd rather create. I'd rather smile, laugh, and look forward to daybreak. Maybe even cry with amazement or frustration of the creations that lie within the depths of my brain or in my hands. Whatever it is I do as I continue to grow, I aim for it to be enjoyable. And I hope that the money rolls in alongside that enjoyment.
My mind is a chaotic and imaginative machine that craves art. I dream of telling stories through film, reports, music, photography, and sketch. I have always desired to journey through different artistic routes in order to express myself and share new ideas with others. The collaborative nature of art is most exciting, and I wish to meet and create with others along the way.
I'm still asked what I want to be when I grow up, although now adulthood is not so far away. Still, it is difficult to name a specific profession.
I know that I want to be me, and that I am a visionary.
So in the simplest terms, who am I and who do I want to be? I simply want to be me.
