Finding Yourself: Are You Doing What You Love?



Everyday, I wake up and go to class, and I ask myself, ” Do I love what I do”? This question seems weird considering the fact that I have not obtained my degree yet, but I am working in the field and learning the skills to graduate. As young as normal college students are, we are very much confused about if college is for us, or if our major is what we love. Some students come into college with no idea of what they want to do, and others enter college knowing exactly what they want to do and where they would like to be in life.

Whatever the choice or reason is, it is important that you find your calling  and graduate college with a plan. Going away to college opens up a world of excitement and discovery. Here at Utica College, our slogan is to NEVER STAND STILL, and I feel that is what makes Utica College a great place to attend. We should never be still in ANYTHING  that we do.

Utica offers a variety of things that a student can do to discover themselves or find their niche. These options include studying aboard, gym classes, art club/art class, and many electives in almost every field that you can add to your schedule. College is all about discovering who you are’ to leave college and still not know who you are is a waste of your time and money.

“No degree or piece of paper in the world can defined who you are or create wisdom; wisdom comes from your courage to not be scared to find out who you are,” -L.


Tips on finding yourself

  1. Discover who you are as a person.
  2. Write down your long-term goals and short-term goals.
  3. Find things in life that make you happy and do it. Do not allow anyone to tell you that anything that you do is not important. Be confident in whatever you choose; stand your ground.
  4. Post your goals on your wall, or set it as your screensaver. Daily motivation is needed to be inspired.
  5. Find two or three quotes that are inspiring: One person that you admire, four strengths that makes you unstoppable. Also post those on your wall or as your screen saver, a daily reminder of these things can really make a difference in you giving up or on yourself.

I hope that you find these tips helpful.
