I graduated from City College this week. It felt great getting my named called and walking across the stage as the crowd applauded my name. I felt like I had achieved so much as an undergraduate and now it it was time for me to move on and contribute to the world in a greater way that I had in school. Yet, I almost had a meltdown this week and i realized I had sooo much more to learn and questioned if I had really learned anything in college. I remembered this feeling...it was like I was a freshman all over again. But this time I was a freshman at life. The week prior I had planned this blog post out to a tee. I was going to discuss everything that lead to this great accomplishment of graduating with a job in my chosen field and enjoying the ride and just feeling like I hit the jackpot. But the world is very different outside of school. The pressure is on and you don't have a professor that tells you to relax when you freak out. You just have to call your Mom. All I know is I have so much more to learn, but now I know what I need to learn instead of justing taking classes because they interest me.
But on a more positive note and I am grateful for my job and the future that lies ahead. Its very bright and its confirmed that setting goals and planning does work! I'm in a better place than I had anticipated. By August I will have 3 IMDB credits, thousands of dollars in the bank, a producer credit...and if i'm lucky an agent. I've done pretty well for myself in two years and I have alot of people to thank for that. I encourage you to tink about the goals you've set in the past. Did you reach them? Exceed them? What worked for you? What didn't serve you?
