If you guess number 2....you're wrong. In fact, I went startight to that guidance office and demanded to have my class changed! Now, if you go to my school, and have ever tried to change a course on the first day of a semester then you know that it's doubtful you're going to even get put on a list. All I was given was class change request form and a boot out the door! This meaning that I was forced to go to class.
So here I go, I see my teacher in the hall way and greet him with a "Hey, how was your summer? Oh, by the way, im dropping your class" - Not exactly the nicest greating in the world but I was under a lot of pressure by that point in the day. So I got into the class, sat with someone I knew, and tried to get the jist of what the class was all about. (Note: It wasn't business, it was entrepreneurship.) Can you guess what happeded next?! Well truth is, by the end of the class, I was sold! I was so excited about being in this class that I wanted to start the final assignment right away! So, in life, you have to keep your mind open to new things, because it just might work out in the end.
That was an example of how things work out, and how you can start off unhappy, but turn out being overly satisfied. Now this is going to be a story of how you can start off proud, and happy, but turn to loosing your confidence and maybe shedding a few tears.
Tonight I went to my first meeting at my community photography club. I was so proud of myself for going, and getting out into the community. I had a great time interacting with people, and listening to the guest speaker, JLV Photography (who was amazing, and a delight to listen to for an hour!). I had some thoughts during the presentation about my own skills, and ended up easily relating to what the guest speaker was saying. He talked about how he started off taking normal family portraits, but always felt that people were better than him. This is the way I have been feeling. I recently did an anniversary party, but still was thinking to myself, this is not going to produce the photos I will be proud of from this, and even these photos could be better taken by someone with a better camera, someone with a better understanding of their camera etc. needless to say, I gave the family their photos today, unsatisfied, and feeling kinda shitty about what I had produced. Fast forward a few hours, and I am left, right now, sitting in bed with my laptop,
