So much has gone on, I have no idea where to start. My twenty-second birthday was yesterday and I feel pretty indifferent about it. I think I started to get complacent but I’m glad that I had my birthday because I ask myself a plethora of questions. Questions like: what have you done lately that will change the world? Are you where you want to be? Where do you see yourself in five years? What goals have you reached recently? Do you have more things to take care of? Who have you inspired? Who has inspired you and how?
As you can probably tell, I never leave a stone unturned. My birthday is where my year started on this Earth so I become more pensive and I reflect more on my life than on January 1st. I went to a concert with Jenny and Tracie called the Amnesty Concert. There were many performers such as Lauryn Hill, Imagine Dragons, The Fray, Cake, Colbie Callait, The Flaming Lips, Yoko Ono, Tegan And Sara, Cold War Kids and more that I can’t remember on the top of my head. Madonna spoke and introduced Pussy Riot. It was inspiring and really left an impact on my close-minded brain. It opened my eyes and made me realize that I live in such a small bubble. My life is so small and useless if I don’t do anything about the pain in the rest of the world. I am so privileged and I have working hands, so why do I sit at home and pick my ass? I have the ability to make a difference and I can travel all over the world. This is why I became a flight attendant. God did not give me this blessing to take advantage of it in a bad way but to use it to help people. I am 22 years old! I am an able-bodied human being who has to change my mindset.
My 22 year old goals:
- Learn Arabic
- Learn the guitar
- Smile at everyone I pass by
- Utilize my flight capabilities to help people
- Work/Create a non-profit
- Set up another event
- Gain experience in event planning/PR
- Find a home church
- Find a coffee shop and buy a vinyl in each place I travel to
- Get closer to obtaining my bachelor’s
- Get a pilot’s license
- Buy a house in Spain by 30
