I want to be a writer.
My dad has been telling me from an early age to be an engineer or a doctor. I've changed my mind on careers a thousand times to please him and my mom. Finally, this year, we decided on music therapy. It was like a truce.
But I really, truly, desperately want to be a writer.
I know that I can write on the side. I know I can do a million things I want to do on the side, like write and take pictures and sing and plan weddings.
But writing is just what I do. I think that it could be something I do for the rest of my life.
It's kind of what I've done for myself since forever.
