I studied what I love in college and while I don’t use my degree, I do not regret a thing. Following your passions and indulging your interests is an investment of in itself.
I am passionate about fashion. I work luxury fashion retail and I can say that on a day-to-day basis, I love my job. I genuinely love dressing the window displays and talking about clothes and fabrics all day.
I make about as much as I would in entry level PR (using my degree), but I have so many other perks: long weekends, less hours, flexibility, ability to move anywhere and find a job, clothing allowance (wooo!), 401k, no work from home, discounts on clothes I would buy anyways…
On my small salary, I still live a very comfortable life. I drive a nice car. I’ve started my retirement savings (401k and Roth IRA). I have a killer closet. I have a gorgeous loft. I take vacations. I’m NOT in credit card debt either.
Don’t feel like you have to settle in life. Just work with what you have!!!posted over 4 years ago
I’m going to be in my second year at college and after much internal debating I think I have decided on majoring in Political Science with a concentration in International Relations. I’m not a huge political prowess like many poli sci majors at my school, so I am a bit afraid of making the commitment to this major.
I simply enjoy learning about country’s various political systems and what makes it work (or often not work) for them. In the future I hope to possibly work for the government at a US consulate/embassy overseas. I’m also minoring in French so my top country to work in would be France of course =)
But as with most things in my life, my plans will probably make a complete 180 and I’ll be teaching kids music in a small midwest city or something lolposted over 4 years ago

i used to be a writer and i got bored,
now i’m a video editor at a production company. although i’m having so much fun in my job right now, i don’t see myself doing it for the next 10 years of my life.
i want something else but I still don’t know what that is! LOL.posted over 4 years ago
I’m 26, working as an office manager and financial bookkeeper for a law office. I never thought I’d end up here, and I don’t see myself staying here in the long term. I actually never got to finish college so I was thinking of going back.
I’m still not clear on what I want to do — I started out as a computer science major in college. Then I wanted to go back to what I really loved, which was being creative. Then I decided I didn’t want to get paid for something I felt I should have complete freedom with, and figured I should go for my more logic-based interests and aim for science: physics, anthropology, archeology, politics, computers. I pretty much run the science gamut, except for chemistry. For some reason, I can’t totally wrap my head around it!posted over 4 years ago
I majored in Anthropology, loved it but as a career not for me. My goal is to become a social worker but there is a possibility of teaching elementary school. But I really do love fashion and designing, my bf and sisters constantly tell me to pursue it and I just might but it would be a side job first.posted over 4 years ago
a friend of mines going into anthropology; i was debating whether to do architecture cause it seems like a more stable job then fashion designer. had a tough time choosing colleges too. i also want to make money once i get out but i highly doubt it since i’ll be coming out with debt … schools are so expensive now. however i love clothes and drawing and designing so hopefully all will work out well :)posted over 4 years ago
I have always wanted to be a fashion designer since I was a child. I still have my little drawings somewhere. Right now I’m in my second year of university studying Fashion Design. I am planning to open an online boutique of one offs not just clothing but art aswell during the next academic year. However, this is my dream be a respected designer, not super famous even though it would be nice, respected independent designer would be good enough for me.
You have to be realistic about a career in the fashion industry. The likely-hood of becoming the next Valentino is slim-to-none, but it doesn’t mean you should target for that.
I also interested in styling, this is a back up to the designing.
My career goal is to have a small boutique in London selling clothing, art and small homeware from young independent designers, aswell as aspiring art students who want to start there career off while studying.posted over 4 years ago

I want to rehabilitate injured marine mammals. Seals, sea turtles, sea lions, dolphins, whales. I love animals and for some reason I’m drawn to the ocean. (Even though I was raised mostly in Kansas) I’m going to have to take a lot of math classes to go to a good vet school, but it’s something I really want to do.posted over 4 years ago
I want to major in photography and journalism. Not judging by my pictures here (they’re awful) I’ve got a real passion for it. As well as writing. Although casually, I babble. So I want to be a photojournalist. I care about money to an extent. I just want enough to support the things that I want most – a Manhattan zipcode and a decent wardrobe. Then everything else is just extras. I think when you’re on a fixed income, it’s important to put your money towards things that you know you want and then determine the things that aren’t as important. Like to me, a vacation every year or a five dollar cup of coffee every morning. Giving up those things will make me much happier with money.posted over 4 years ago
