My Dreams of my Future Career
All this while I had no idea what I wanted to write about and after thinking about it for 4 days I still couldn’t come up with anything until now and I thought I would like my readers to know more about me and who I want to become or even who I am now. One thing you should know about me is the one thing that keeps me going every day is my future. I’d say I am a pretty well-driven person when it comes to career choices. You may think I am too young to know what I want to do and in many ways you are correct. For a long time, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Just like every teenager I was moving from one dream to the other just hoping to find my perfect match and until very recently I did. I want to be an actor and a writer.
Most of you would probably know the similarity between the two and it’s quite simple, it’s our imagination and I am filled with that. I am a dreamer and an over-thinker and that is exactly what helps me create my work. I would make up these images inside my head of things I wanted or didn’t want and I put it into words. I’d always wanted to write a book but if you asked me two years back whether I could become a writer I would laugh it off. I never thought that overthinking would ever help me but in many ways it did because it was my imagination and I got a good chance to prove that I can write. When I first started writing I wasn’t good, my sentence structure, spelling, and my grammar, and in many ways it still isn’t but what I had were these pictures and images of “if” and that was enough. So I just started writing and then I wrote my first book, “Stuck-Up“. Now it may not be the best but it was enough for me. It was something I could be proud of. It took me a very long time to know what my very strong suit was and it was my imagination.
We all have dreams and some of which may never come true so instead of making my dreams come true I wrote about them. Even when I just sit idle doing absolutely nothing these images just pop in my head, images that don’t relate to me. Once I was finishing my school language assignment in which we had to create a story all about suspense and so I created it and I couldn’t stop. My final story changed at least 4 times because of the different things we could have done with it. Then there was this other time when I was sitting and writing about how unfair exams can be and then I got another idea about this society and a novel I could write about it but the point I am trying to make is that we get inspiration from everywhere but we just have to learn to use that information to help ourselves but back to my story.
I also mentioned that I wanted to be an actor and I do, I do. Since I was a child in the entertainment industry, more specifically the film industry seemed fascinating to me. I didn’t think I could act but it was only because I didn’t give it enough time for me to know that it was the right fit for me. When I see actors act I can relate to them on many levels. It’s funny how I can relate to any character on some level, it could be the worst or the best character and that’s what I love about TV shows and Movies not to mention they can completely change your mood. Most movies make you believe that there is a better life. It gives you hope. Movies and Tv shows can change people’s lives. It could inspire them or it could be something they watch when going through tough times to know that life will be better. I like the industry not only because I think I am capable of making my place in it someday but also because of how great it is. I can watch tv all day long and still not get bored because more than anything else movies speak to me and do a better job than most people who talk to me regularly.
When I watch something I feel alive, even though I’m not in the movie it makes me feel as though I am in it. But what I love most about it is the power that it has. Movies are for entertainment and they are something the whole world watches which gives it power and that power can be put to good use. When you watch a movie you learn something and sometimes you may not even realize it but subconsciously we all do, at least in most movies. They can help create change, real change that the society needs in today’s day and I want to be able to do that someday. I would like to get an opportunity to make those changes through movies, because who doesn’t love movies right? Movies are so simple and yet they answer so many questions we have about life and love. You get to see a whole new life that you weren’t even aware existed. Movies do a great job to show the important things, life, love, family, happiness, time and so much more. When I watch a movie I feel so many emotions. Some days it is an escape from reality and someday I want it to show me the real world. TV shows and movies have a huge impact on people and I want to be a part of the impact.
There are lots of perks of being an actor from money to fame and so much more but that’s not why I want to be an actor or a writer. I want to be able to create something that brings a smile on someone’s face someday. I want to be able to inspire someone with my work someday. I want my performance to be so good that when I cry my audience does too. I want my audience to connect to me. I want my imaginations to make a difference in somebody else’s life. I’m curious about life and when I see actors perform they help me learn about so much more. Sometimes I think the TV shows I watch help me more than what I learn at school. Even though most of it is fiction, there is more reality to it than we know. It helps me become a better person, a better writer, and a better version of myself. I have seen many movies and so many of them are horrific but then some are incredible and they are movies that truly inspire and I want to be able to do that someday. I have a big imagination and I just hope that someday I get to make good use of it.
