One love

After a night of hanging out with fellow journalism students, my head is whirring with questions once again. What am I meant to do? What is my sole purpose in life? Everyone around me always seems so sure of what they want to do and I thought I was but now I am not so sure… When I was young (I say that but I am only 19 years old lol) all I wanted to do was grow up quick so that I could save the world, one species at a time but then money and fame fogged up my mind. My teachers always told me I was good at writing and that I was meant for tv and I think that is why I ventured into broadcast journalism. I wanted to be rich and famous (who doesn’t?). So I lost sight of my true ONE LOVE: nature.

Tonight a colleague asked me about my handmade necklace, bracelet and ring which all had turtles on them. I explained to him how my favorite animals are sea turtles and how I first fell in love with them when I went to Maui. Then I began talking endlessly about the ocean and how I love the outdoors. At the end, this is what he said: “I’ll be very disappointed if you don’t end up doing what you love.” 

Now I can’t stop thinking! Is that what I am supposed to do? Talk about animals and trek across beautiful lands? Why is life so full of foggy choices?

This is exactly the sea turtle that made me fall endlessly in love with these majestic creatures.
