Honestly there is no time like the present! Let's continue telling the story, for that we have to go back in time a bit to 2016. The year 2016 was important because I graduated from college in 2016 and reality set in from there that school was over. I was home and needed to become an adult that feeling though sucked. I finally got a job almost a year after graduating and my career in retail officially began and I've said in that field since.
Back in High school I had asked if I wanted to get into the wrestling business what should I major in at college and marketing or video production were the options given. I chose marketing as it was something I already had an interest in and wanted to further develop that aspect of my skills. However, getting a degree doesn't mean that you will automatically gain you a job in the field of choice even though you went to school expecting to have a future in the field.
I didn't let the degree go to waist though as I've used the marketing skills I learned in school to further Wrestling Express both with written and spoken content. Though a number of people around me believe I haven't given everything I could to find a way to get my foot in the door in the field I went to school for, I feel like I didn't waist it. If given the chance I wouldn't do it over again not that I regret it, but I feel like I went to school to get it out of the way as opposed to hoping it would benefit my life long term.
At this time I don't think that I was ready to be an adult and didn't really feel like thinking more in depth into where I'd be a year or a few months down the road. Though I feel like I'm a logical and realistic person not having a plan long term and just going through the motions leads to a point where change is needed. Mentally, professionally, and emotionally I was hiding from any difficult decisions and was just trying to live like I did when I was a student and not accepting that it was time to grow up.
