Dreaming out Loud

I recently came across a travel blog written by a flight attendant, or whatever the politically correct terminology is now… She catalogs all of her travels, where she goes, what she does, what she eats and what she thinks of those places she travels to.

I thought this was an intriguing career path and one that I, with a serious case of wanderlust, would be interested in. However, just this past year I was a passenger on an airplane to Philadelphia, PA that experienced extreme turbulence. As a result, (and after hearing the flight attendants yelping), I quickly decided that a that career path was not for me.

I traveled to Pennsylvania for a journalism conference and I have greatly enjoyed it. This particular conference was made up predominantly of professionals in writing, publishing, design, and management. This was an interesting group for a group of university students to be immersed in. I was thrilled at how receptive the attendees were and how willing they were to sit and talk with us about our future aspirations and how we believed their businesses could be a part of our journey.

George Orwell once said, “When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing." His statement perfectly defines my relationship with writing. I seek to uncover, expose and educate society on the issues we face as a country and as a world today. My background in English and History has given me the means and the knowledge necessary to understand what is happening and how to explain it to others. I want my career to take me into different parts of the world where I can continue to learn and grow in my personal life and my professional life. There is a clear separation between the people we could be and the people we are. I want to educate and promote the best in mankind. With this, only then, can we be truly healed and find the success we desire.
