Blog Post #3: Your Future

Posted on Updated on

So maybe this blog got too serious too quickly, but chances are, if you’re reading this blog, you’re probably old enough and getting the pressures of college and life choices. Chances also are, that you think it’s ridiculous for you to pick a one-way plan for the rest of life if you’re not even allowed to get a tattoo (I mean, seriously, who designed this system?!).

But, in reality, while this is true, it is also true that you can decide what you want to do, and maybe it’s not full-time, maybe it’s just a hobby, but it’s possible. And I’m not trying to add more pressure to those delicate shoulders of yours, but one of these life-long goals should be to help people.

Now, there are literally infinite ways to accomplish this, and you should consider all of them. Why not? I mean, if you can do something to put a smile on someone’s face, you should do everything in your power to make it happen.

The point of this post is to turn the wheels in your brain and get you thinking about things in your community, and school, and even in your home that can change someone’s life for the better. The point is also to be rational and to realize that these things cost money. I’m not trying to discourage you, because for some people, if they make a goal, they will literally move mountains to reach them.

Actually, the real goal of this post is to bring to your attention: this. This is a contest to see who has the best idea to help people. Essentially, all you’re doing is writing a short little paragraph about how you’d use $500 to help others, and if you’re one of two winners, you actually get the $500 to make it happen! I mean, if anything, you’ll have an idea, and a really good one, and even if you don’t win, you at least have something going, an actual hard plan in motion. But do make sure you read the rules yourself!

And who knows? Maybe you won’t need their money to make it happen.
