My Journey to Success, part 1.8:08 AM
Today I'm going to be blunt and brag about myself. Which I think is completely fine for people to do from time to time. I'm going to talk about my journey to "success" and how I've accomplished my most recent long term goal - becoming a certified Language Arts teacher.
I remember this moment very vividly - I had gotten a call from a professor about scheduling a meeting to discuss an 'issue' that had come to their attention. At this point I was just coming into my senior year and had been actively blogging since my Freshman year. I had spent the summer dabbling in the YouTube community, and realized very quickly that this digital medium was something I loved just as much as being a teacher. I spent the summer creating lookbooks, advice, and comedy videos. My favorites were the ones where I just sat in front of a camera and talked (& talked & talked & talked...) I learned that I enjoyed being sarcastic and funny on camera, and I looked forward to growing my channel into something big. So. when I sat down in this professors office and was reprimanded for content on my blog and YouTube channel, I felt defeated, angry, hurt, and small.
