Changed the name to something a little more eyewear related.
Tell all your eyewear addicted friends too! <3
I Was SOOO Excited Yesterday… Only to be Disappointed Again
Yesterday, my trial contacts came in… and you know what that means? SUNGLASSES!!!! But alas, the contacts did not do well in my eyeballs, my vision was not clear enough for them to let me walk out with them.
So at least another week until my glorious collection can be worn again.
PS: The reason I can’t wear my sunnies right now is because I’m a -9.00 *sadface*
As for any typical Tuesday or Thursday, I am back from my Beginning Journalism class with contemplations of the future. I always seem to have excess amounts of energy after this class, I really enjoy it. But this class always makes me wonder if I can actually do this.
Can I make it in the cutthroat world of Journalism? Am I okay with the knowledge that my job security will practically be nonexistent? I honestly don’t know.
Today we started learning about interviewing people. Very interesting and super fun. I haven’t felt this excited about a class since my first yearbook class that I took in junior high. I started writing my notes and imagining myself interviewing a person, who in my mind is one of the most awesome people around: Larry Leight. I imagined myself in the most wonderful office I have ever seen: the Oliver Peoples Headquarters in Los Angeles, with its clean lines and its fabulous creative workspace. During class, when we talk about the importance of open-ended questions, I start to wonder what I would ask him: “How did it feel when you first saw someone wearing your designs?”
The whole experience made me realize (or actually, affirm something I already knew) that I am obsessed with eyewear. Even my designs on going into journalism has a sunglasses motive as I want to go into fashion journalism. My former goal of becoming a nurse was so that I could afford my addiction to accessories. My utmost favorite personal piece of photography is my self-portait with my sunglasses. So really, shouldn’t I just cut out the middle man and try and find a job that pertains to eyewear?
But what kind of jobs are there for people who are in love with the beautiful pieces of art that adorn one’s face? I really don’t think I have the patience to become an optometrist. I guess I could work at Sunglass Hut. But is that a career? How do I make this love something that can last me a lifetime? In essence, how do I become Larry Leight? Are there schools that train you to design eyewear?
Le sigh. Why does it always seem like the question “What do I want to be when I grow up?” has to be the hardest one I’ll ever answer?
I know I Said This was Strictly a Plog…
But I didn’t post a pic of the sunglasses I was wearing today (30 June 2010)… very stressful day, but I was wearing my Spy Elizas. Fun stuff. Check it out next time around.
