As I start my last semester of college, I can hardly go a day without being asked about my plans for next year or if I have a job lined up yet. As someone who is pursuing a career in acting, I definitely do not have a conventional plan for next year. I’m nervous about this decision and am completely aware of the risks, but I am also so incredibly excited to see where the coming months will take me.
I think your twenties should be about pursuing a career in something that you love and that gets you excited! This is the time in life to make mistakes, take risks and as cheesy as it is, go for your dream. When I look back on these years, I don’t want to regret having settled for a “safe” job. I want to know that I did all I could to do something I love and have a passion for. And you can’t really be sure of anything in life, so why not just go for what you really want anyway? It’s not stupid or irrational to go for a dream, but brave and powerful to go against the grain and do something that makes you excited to get out of the bed in the morning.
