I woke up from a nap, enraged thinking about the state of Earth. I even went on a little rant via instagram. While most kids my age seem to focus on such trivial issues such as why their boyfriend didn’t text back for an hour, or picking the iphone 8 vs. the X. I feel like I’m stuck in a different dimension when it comes to how my brain works. Granted I’m not perfect I stress over dumb shit all the time and I’m not trying to knock anyone down for what’s going on in their heads, but seriously guys come on….. I literally say this all the time, to the point where I’m about to get it tattooed on my forehead, THE EARTH CAN SURVIVE WITHOUT US, BUT WE CANNOT SURVIVE WITHOUT HER. Okay I’m not seriously going to get it tattooed on me, but I believe it so deeply I want to shout it from the roof tops.
So the whole point of this post is to say I think I know where I want to go career wise and my future in general. I already have been looking into tiny homes, sustainable living, electric cars, being 100% vegan (im working on it!!), reducing my use of non-recyclable products…just lowering my carbon foot print however possible. So my job, working with animals, I absolutely love, but I also know I don’t want to do it forever ever. Why? Cause I want to travel, see the world, enjoy whats left of the untouched places before they’re gone. And a job like mine requires a great deal of time, which is understandable, and even though I’m so passionate about it, I want there still to be a place in this world for animals whether domestic or wild, so my passion for our Earth also roots from my love for animals. So I’ve decided to not only dedicate my life to a career in Earth conservation and green energy, but I think I’ve finally found where I want to take my photography. I want to document it all, whether its the beauty of the lands I travel to or the desecration of this Earth caused by humans.
I never really understood my purpose, or why (as dramatic as it sounds I’m not kidding) all the times I should’ve died I didn’t and I think it was for this. When I have the drive, I am a force to be reckoned with, I will do almost anything to get what I want, if I want it bad enough. So I will make this happen, now obviously I alone can not save the Earth, but I sure as hell can be apart of the movement into cleaning up the mess the 7.6 billion people in this world have contributed to.
On that note…looks like I need to get back into college….
