A full week of random themed playlists. Hope you enjoy. It has been fun, I think I will do it again.
I am a firm believer in personal revelation--that God loves us, and will give us specific direction for our lives-if we ask Him. I believe that He wants FAR more for us than we do, and is much better at unlocking our full potential.
For the last several months, My Favorite Gentleman has been telling me that I should go back to school. However, unlike my good friends and siblings who are, even now, back at school (for perfect, specific things!), I had NO IDEA what I wanted to be "when I grow up"! I would go through the catalog and look at classes in exactly the same way I choose ice cream--wanting everything!
Yes, there are a few things that I could eliminate--I won't be a nurse or a teacher, and physicist or chemist is right out (they interest me, but I think it is a little late to acquire the math skills!). However, I really do want to learn to weld, learn about automotive and small engine repair, furniture building and recovery, sewing, yoga, cake decorating (don't laugh!), ASL, Latin Studies, and the list goes on!
I have been praying to know what program to go into, and when--(since a welding, sewing, history, CAD program doesn't seem to lead to a useful degree) and (once I kicked my prayers up a notch!) I have the answers*!
And, even better--it is not time yet, but it is time to start getting my ducks in a row, so when the time is right, everything will be in place!
I am going into (drumroll, wait for it...) Fashion Design & Manufacturing, with an emphasis on designing cute, modest clothes. Modesty with flair! I can't believe how excited the whole idea makes me!
When my little sister A went back to Culinary School, she was excitedly describing her course curriculum, and asked me "doesn't that just make you excited?!"
Culinary School (while I wouldn't mind it) didn't light any sparks, but reading the course list for a Bachelors Degree in design--well! "Flat Pattern/Draping I & II, Fashion Technical Drawing, Apparel Prototype Production and Analysis"--Now THAT is my language! It excites me even to read about it!
And I am glad that I don't have to do it right this minute--When dear Miss K decided to go back to school, she applied on Wed, and started on Monday! I have too many things going on at once to start right now, but I am excited for the future!
*You know it's revelation when it is an idea that never crossed your mind before, and it is perfect!
