What are you doing in your daily life that expresses your passion or the things you are passionate about?
My passion that I get to express everyday is learning and sharing the best of what I’ve learned. At school I do research to create new art projects for my students. It is a rush for me to create my own artwork. The next exciting thing I get to be a part of is when students enjoy the process or result of art making. I’ve also been passionate about learning as much as a can about digital photography. Everyday I watch at the least a short tutorial on photography at Lynda.com. In addition, I’ve gotten subscriptions to photography magazines and after much research I ordered a camera. I’m motivated to learn about digital photography for my own selfish and selfless reasons. I plan to share what I learn about it photography to my students. Lastly, I’m passionate about grad school. I like the feel of working hard for something I once thought to be out of reach for me.
The passions that I’ve had to cutback on in life do to grad school times restraints are as follows: time with girlfriend, skateboarding, working out at the Y, time with friends, and time with family. I’ve noticed that being deprived of the things I love makes me appreciate them more when I do get to indulge a little. I've noticed lately that I've been sacrificing more time away from grad work to be with family and friends. I can't say I've regretted it one bit. In six more weeks I count on having healthier doses of my passions in my life. For now I must dig deeper to finish strong.
