Instead of accepting my impending doom
like an elephant who is chained to a pole stuck in the ground,
which they can easily rip out and run free,
I accepted that the outcome of feeling stuck and focused on a more practical path,
To be an electrician + own a business one day was my plan!
However, that decision was based
on skills, that make money.....
but it wasn't my passion,
it wasn't my love, it wasn't me.
It was the summer before the last year of high school.
It was such an exciting time for everyone, talking about the future. Decisions on which university to attend were being made.
Also, which career path to take and even what car they will get to drive that year. It was an exciting time for everyone but me.
Scared? Absolutely, well because I wasn't going to graduate high school.
I had failed my Junior year of English Lessons. The pre-requisite course in order to graduate.
And on top of that my School Advisor mentioned that I needed 22-course hours, in one year mind you, to do it!
That was incredibly difficult for a student like me.
See I was lazy, or I enjoyed being lazy.
I always was able to excel in subjects that I had a passion for such as arts and PE, but that was my reality, an eventual high school dropout.
