Dreams and Goals of Mine

Some people say I plan too much. And I admit I do at times, however I firmly believe in having some sort of direction in life and that involves planning. However, not everything I plan comes to fruition, but thats just life. So what is it that little ole’ me wants out of life? What are my goals for the future? Well if you really wanna know I guess i can tell ya 🙂

My main goal is to become a working photographer. I want to be getting paid for doing what I love. The ultimate dream of mine regarding photography? Working as a fashion photographer, or as traveling photographer for National Geographic. Or hell, why not both? I wouldn’t be complainin’ if I had both jobs! Thats for sure! I also want to write an e-book or two about how to take amazing photos using your regular old digital camera and how to make them look professional. It’s something I think a lot of people would like to learn about, and I get SO many questions as to how I do what I do. This would be an easy way to answer them all! 😀

Speaking of writing, not that I’m so amazing at it ( I need an editor! AHH), but I would love to finish my novel and publish it as an e-book it  for Kindle.  Do I want to  be the next Amanda Hocking? Heck yeah! But this is by far a long shot! 😛 However, I will give it a go and see what happens. That’s one thing I like about my personality, (And yes ya’ll you shouldn’t be ashamed to like yourself 🙂 I’m really not afraid to take risks. You either succeed or you fail, but at least you tried right?

Speaking of books, did I mention I’m opening up my own online bookstore? It will be a collection of used books, as well as used college textbooks at cheap and affordable prices. It’s always been a true dream of mine to own a bookstore. Of course when I pictured it, my bookstore was ya know, an actual store, and I ran a cute little cafe inside that served coffee and baked goods, but hey, this works too! 🙂

Let’s see what else? Oh yes! I want to finish school of course! I want to earn my bachelors degree in business management. I’m not aiming for a specific date to finish, because it’s really expensive and the University I want to go to just raised their tuition! 0_0 NOT COOl! I will find my way though, I always do 🙂

Last but not least, I want to design! I’m a design freak. I like designing clothes, jewelry (Actually just started the jewelry website, so I will be posting that when it’s finished!)and even furniture! So who knows where I will go with all these ideas! Once you start dreamin, and plannin, things fall into place if you work hard enough!! 😉 So never stop dreaming, and plan, plan, plan!!

Well that was my “random rant” for the day! Leave a comment, subscribe, or send me a message! Ciao!

There are so many victories you can achieve; all goals are worth fighting for.”
-Kiplimo Chemirmir

We’ll Make it Someday-An Original Poem by RIX

We’ll Make it Someday

Dreams far off

Dreams so close I can touch

The ground below

The sky above

The heart aches

Breathing stops

Lips open to speak

No sound leaves

Wind blows across my face

Cotton dress sways in the breeze

Memories swallow me whole

Of days much brighter

No guilt

No Pain, only joy

Rain falls

Thunder booms above

Lightening races across the sky

Rage stirs within my soul

Those memories, oh how they haunt me

Restless my heart is

Circumstances out of my control

But whispers of hope can be heard far off in the distance

What the future holds is fascinating

Must hang on

Don’t let go

We’ll make it some day

-RIX
