Growing up, I wanted to do anything and everything.

Now with the clock ticking down to sixteen, I have no idea how to reign myself in and focus on one thing.

My whole life, I’ve been interested in writing and media production—but on the other hand I have years of piano experience building my potential, so shouldn’t I give Hollywood a chance?

But then again, I could become a Youtuber, or a screenwriter, or a philosopher.

And if I really fall off, a Soundcloud rapper.

It scares me to know that I have so many options in the same way that it excites me—there’s a lot of possibilities, and I’m a great multitasker, but taking on too much puts me at risk of burnout, no matter how dedicated I am to my many interests.

When the multitude of desires that reside in my brain finally come to a consensus about where my life is headed, I think I’ll be satisfied for what the rest of my life has to offer me.
