An Insight to My Life

I am a very unique person. I have always been told how weird/different/mysterious I am. I believe this is because I have never been afraid to be myself. A big problem prevalent throughout society is the belief that we need to try to fit in. Everyone does what everyone else does and everyone is scared to be themselves.

We all have our own talents and quirks and passions, we need to start pursuing those things. We need to use our personal creativity and find a career within that field.

That is what I’ve been doing my whole life and that is why I’m considered different. I have yet to find that one passion to choose a career in but I am at least trying. I know that my passion is to help people but I just don’t know the one career I want to choose. I, like everyone else, am guilty of trying to conform to society’s ways.

I decided to go to college and pursue a degree that would make me a lot of money so I could look successful in society’s eyes. I went to college with the intention of getting a degree in accounting so I could make a decent wage.

After a couple weeks, I realized that’s not what I wanted to do. I realized I wasn’t living for myself, and I realized it wasn’t my true passion. After the first semester of college I switched to a degree in Astrophysics. I have always loved space and I was very good at math so I thought this was a good career choice. I believed space exploration was very important because it brings everyone together and it gives society as a whole, something to strive for. Just look at the moon landing and how that brought everyone together; everyone was tuned in on that day and that’s all they were talking about.

I was excelling in my classes and I ended up getting in to a program in which I had a chance to get offered a free ride to any grad school I wanted, and the program would pay for me to travel the country and work with people in my field. After a while I began to lose passion for that career choice and I turned down the offer. I realized that we shouldn’t be searching the universe for new life when we can’t even co-exist with the life on our own planet.

So finally, I ended up pursuing a degree in Philosophy. A lot of people get turned off when they hear the word Philosophy. They believe it’s some complex subject that they would have no idea what’s going on; but this is a huge misconception.

The origin of the word Philosophy is, the love of wisdom. Philosophy is just thinking about the world, society, and the universe and asking questions about the basic knowledge of human thought, the nature of the universe, and how they are connected.

So basically, it’s the study of humans; what we are, where we came from, and why we think the way we do. I have always been interested in this so I thought might as well pursue a degree in it so I can be around like-minded people and I’ll have the credentials for when the time comes in which I want to rant about something.
