If you guys have the spare time, click the link below and vote for The Summer Set as the next iHeart Radio Rising Star.
I’ve been following this band since 2009 and it would be a great way to see one of my favorite bands win through all the hardwork and effort they’ve done almost the last few years.
So go and vote up to 25 or even simply just one. I would be a really good help for them to make it to the top!
Someday - The Summer Set
My favorite from their new album and definitely added to my list of favorites songs from them.Apr212013
Once, I had a conversation with Josh Montgomery from The Summer Set about how he rather be doing something he loved than doing something he couldn’t enjoy doing for the rest of his life. If he was, he would be stuck in school right now trying to be a doctor.
Ever since then, I never realized why people do or follow what they want/love to do in life until now.
Coming home from my night class, my dad and I had a random conversation when he brought up the subject on what I should pursue in a career. It’s been a while since the subject came about, but tonight I never been so discouraged.
If you don’t know already, I am a Filipino-American and usually they expect majority of their kids to pursue a career in the medical field. Most of my family who have attended school, have or are still leading toward that career goal unlike me.
Even though I know having a career in the medical field is a great, but I always wanted to do something of my personal interest and decided to major in a career towards Communications. I do admit, I am not set in stone on what specific field but I do know that I either want to become a PR, Counselor, or even work in Social Services. Why? Because I want to help others and also make a difference. It may not be a full on reason why I really am pursing this career but it’s enough for me to still follow what I really want to do in the future.
Cutting to the chase, sometimes I wonder why people ask what you plan or are currently majoring in college only to discourage you on what you want for your future career. I’m not saying majoring in the medical, business, or any other major is bad but shouldn’t it be based on something you really love? People have to remember that people choose these majors or career paths because they want to go into these fields. They want to do this because they love what this job is going to lead them to.
Don’t get me wrong, I know being a nurse, doctor, business man or woman are great career paths but do people forget that we need teachers, musicians, artists, construction workers etc.? Without these other careers, no one would learn, things wouldn’t be built and everything else wouldn’t be decorated and plain.
At times, I really do dislike it when people do as the “major and career” question because sometimes, their feedback or response isn’t as exciting or welcoming as you hoped. I know people have also been in my shoes so they must know the feeling.
This may be one of the most pointless posts but just getting to the point, honestly “do what you love and love what you want do to.” Regardless of what anyone says, you should say “f” them and go for what you really want to do for your future/life. It may be a rocky journey but if what you want to do in life doesn’t scare you, they are not big in life. Whether you want to purse a career a doctor, engineer, fireman, artist, psychologist, or whatever do what you want. No matter how easy or long it takes, just go for your dreams and what your heart desires.Mar142013
