Planning ahead.
Doing something different, something you would never do.

These past few weeks I've been thinking about many things, basically planning ahead. It's my first in year high school (yes, I'm that fresh meat, the freshman) but I like sorting things out, even though most of the time it doesn't work out the way I imagined, being prepared is the best way to be. Besides moving to New York I've been thinking a lot about college, the biggest question in my mind is, "Do I really want to go to college?" When I begun searching colleges/universities I only researched fashion schools, for fashion design (back when I wanted to be a fashion designer), and after talking to my brother endlessly I just decided fashion school isn't for me - or fashion designing for that sake. My brother said to me, "You can't teach creativity. " and that couldn't be farther from the truth. I wanted to study fashion design firstly because I didn't know there were so many awesome careers in fashion and secondly because I hoped that they'd teach me creativity. I have great ideas and I consider myself a very creative person, just not for fashion designing.

My career choice has shifted to becoming a fashion editor for a magazine, but that doesn't mean I still want to go to fashion school nor study journalism. Lately, I've been considering applying for schools with psychology but then that same question comes to me, "Do I really want to go to college?" There is pros and cons. One pro is having a college degree which by itself is great and can help me on the long run but one con is will I be able to manage it correctly. Having my blog up, going to fashion week, going to photoshoots, traveling. Frankly it's just about how much I believe in myself and I think I still need a little more time to gain confidence.

One question you might be asking is, "Why psychology?" My one and only answer will always be I want to understand everyone. I want to understand why it is a person think a certain way or why they do certain things differently. I do, one day, plan on having kids, of course when I'm ready which will most likely be when I'm like 40, and I want to be able to understand and listen to them. I want them to trust me and I want to help them in a day of crisis. That, is why I want to study psychology. Of course you do many other things in psychology but those are my main reason.
