Sometimes I forget I’m doing an internship. Sometimes I forget what I’m doing is a full-time job. My friends are doing their internships, and they tell me about how they get stuck in an office or how they have tons of paperwork or how they’re at a desk inputting numbers into a computer all day. All the while, I’m here taking kids to the beach and building VBS sets.
I have absolutely no reason to complain about my internship. I don’t know how to express how lucky I am to get to wake up every morning and do something I love. It is something that is fun and exciting and different each day. People complain about the real world and how much it will suck to be a grown up, but I can’t wait. It’s not going to be fun paying bills or not having nap time, but it’s going to be great doing what I love everyday.
It’s a shame that more people don’t follow their passions. It’s a shame that we live in a society where we are driven by money and success. I’m excited to follow my dreams even if that means I’ll be paying my college loans off until my own kids go to college. I have no doubt that it’s going to be a challenge, but I also don’t doubt that I’ll be exactly where God wants me to be.
