What did you want to be as a grown-up?
Well, my big passion is second-hand clothing. I love building up old things.
Whenever I want to relax I think about my future house. I want to buy an old one. Maybe not in ruins – but I wouldn’t mind actually. This way, I could first break down everything to rebuilt it all again. I’d play with designs, make it my own you know… and it calms me down. Works every time. I’ve had this project in mind for years now.
Have I thought of interior design as a career? *laughs* No but it’s a possibility for sure!
On a more down-to-earth point, I think we all have this time in life when we don’t necessarily like our job … but we do it anyways. You just have to put up with it for a while, that’s all. I’m almost graduated now. I don’t know where I’ll work but I guess it’ll be in a consulting firm. It’s not that I want to, but I have to. I have a loan waiting for me, so the quicker I find a high-paying occupation, the better.
This means that by 35 I’ll be able to start doing something I actually like. Hopefully
I remember my former boss telling me about her last occupation. She worked in a big consulting firm with the salary that goes with it. But, she didn’t really enjoy it. She’d describe her lifestyle, the big parties she went to, the designer clothes she wore, the services she had access to, etc. but somehow she still managed to be severely out of cash at the end of the month. She’d be in office from 8 to 11pm on good days and leave at 3am on harsher days.
I know I don’t want this life for myself, but if I choose well I won’t have to face this kind of situation hopefully
