The Passion Hunt

Well, I know that I have been flip-flopping on what I want to do for the rest of my life, but I think that I found my niche. I am considering going back to Rockland Community College for my paralegal certificate. I tried the psychology route and after Physiological Psychology, I was like “This isn’t for me”. I watch a lot of Court TV and that is truly where my heart is. I realized that I have to do what I love and not what others say what I would be good at.

I believe that our legal system is crucial for our existence and without it, we would be a mess as a country. I want to be a paralegal because I want to help litigants get the justice they deserve. I am old-fashioned and believe that justice should be served fairly and equally. It isn’t as prestigious as a doctor or a lawyer, but I really feel I belong in this profession and I think my family supports that.

I will keep you posted to what I do, but I think that I will stick with this. For young people out there, please don’t feel confused if you don’t know what you want to do for the rest of your life. It took me a long time to get on the right path, but I think I finally found what I want to do and you will too. It takes time to find a true passion that you will stick with for the rest of your life, but eventually, you’ll find it.

My Florida Trip

I am so sorry for not blogging in a few weeks. I was on vacation in Florida visiting a friend. I just got in last night and I figured that I would blog about my vacation.

Alright. I drove to Seminole, Florida with my grandmother and her friend. He lives in Florida and he came up by plane and took us back to his place in Florida. We traveled for four days and on the way down, we met one of his daughters and her family. They made us feel very comfortable. They live in western North Carolina’s beautiful mountains. I loved the area where they lived. They had one of those driveways with woods on either side. Their house had a stone fireplace, wooden floors, a kitchen and two levels. This couple offered very good hospitality. They made my grandmother and I feel very comfortable. On the way back, we stopped in Tallahassee and met our friend’s other daughter and her family. They were also very friendly. We had dinner out with them and we had ourselves a good time. Then we went back to their house for dessert and that was a good time.

In Florida, we went to Weeki Watchi, Seaworld, a Tampa Bay Ray game, the dog races, Hard Rock Café, which is a casino and a mystery room, where we were locked in room and we had to figure out a particular scenario. That was really hard for me because most of the clues were physical clues like locks and maps. Our scenario was Kidnapped and only about seventeen percent actually complete it. We didn’t complete it but we were halfway there. I was horrible at it because I had no clue about the clues. A lot of them had to do with Xbox and I don’t know much about it. My favorite was the mermaid show at Weeki Watchi. They had actors that would go underwater and perform songs. The last one was Proud To Be An American and that is one of my uncle’s favorite songs. We experienced a baseball game, but the Tampa Bay Rays lost. We went to Seaworld and saw the dolphins, penguins and many more things. All in all, it was a really fun trip.
