things I want to do before I graduate high school

I would call this a "bucket list" but I don't really feel like that's appropriate. I guess these are more like dreams/goals/ambitions. As of right now, I'm thinking "well it will probably never happen." But then I look back on the past two years and I look at all the things that have happened that I would have never dreamed of happening. 

{try modeling}

Ok, so this is every girl's dream. But I am honestly interested in modeling as an art form and because I'm in love with the fashion industry. I feel like some people thing negatively of models but I honestly think it's a really interesting and cool job- you get a lot of experiences people don't. I would only want to do completely fashion-related stuff though- I have a unique-looking face and probably wouldn't be able to do random stuff. The reason I've been interested in modeling for a while now is because I love fashion but I know it's not something I'm going to pursue as a career. You obviously can't model forever and technically can stop whenever you want to. But because I want to go into something arts-related, I feel like being a model could give me more experience and fulfill my fashion obsession. 

{write a novel}

This is something I have been thinking about doing for about a year now but never have. I've mostly stuck to writing songs because I personally think it's easier; with writing a novel you have to tie in a million different elements. Besides, I'm not exactly sure what I would write about although I know it would probably be something dramatic/symbolic/thematic. 

{obtain a boyfriend}

Enough said. (Cause seriously it would just be kinda sad if I graduated high school and never had a boyfriend.) I've just never had a legitimate guy actually interested in me as a whole person. I have had multiple creepers/stalkers but that is the extent of it. 

{have some type of job that pertains to my interests}

I would really love to have a job in high school, but sorry...I'm picky. I just don't want to be a cashier or waiter or McDonald's employee. I don't really care if it's "a first job experience." I obviously will have a career that suits my interests so I am going to have a first job that follows that path. I honestly see employing in a position that doesn't help your career and life path as a waste of time. I would personally find no value in being a cashier or waiter or McDonald's employee and I value my interests over money. 

Well, this is what is is right now. All of this seems far away, but with what I have already accomplished I have no doubt I'll be able to be happy with what I do accomplish.

  12. Omg, you're like the perfect daughter - so smart and so level-headed. I hope my boys grow up and date a girl like you! I can't believe you are still in high school, I assumed you were older because you're so mature. I know this sounds cliche but remember you can do anything you put your mind to! If you really believe it and imagine what it looks like on a daily basis, it will happen for you <3
