I am afraid of being the girl who’s “making jewelry now.”
After posting about my job loss, I received several messages about changes people around me are making. My freshman roommate left the world of politics and is starting to take culinary classes! A good friend of Patrick’s has stopped pursuing journalism, and is going back to school for Animal Science. Another friend e-mailed me last week for a reference–because she wants to come work at CPA.
So it has me thinking, are we all just “making jewelry now?” And maybe there’s nothing wrong with that. The world needs jewelry after all. And it needs bloggers, and chefs, and people to care for pets. But can our generation commit to become great at the crafts we choose? Or are we content to jump from one idea to the next, living as life-long amateurs?
