Being Two Things with H&M

Sunday, June 19, 2016

There comes a time when we all have to decide what path to take in life. Recently I thought that if I chose to take one path it meant I wouldn't be able to go down the other. After my catastrophe of an internship last summer I was sure that working in a corporate environment wasn't for me, but now I am not so sure.

As many of you know I am studying computer science and have been working as a developer this summer at top Fortune 500 company. Many people would look at me and think WOW, how impressive is she! Studying computer science and starting her second internship at a huge company. From the outside it seems impressive but on the inside I was completely torn. I wasn't sure if I should put all my apples in being a programmer; something I am good at, can make (really) good money from and admittedly enjoy, or if I should solely focus on becoming a fashion blogger; my true passion in life.

After starting my internship and loving it thus far, and also growing my social media presence I realized something, I CAN BE TWO THINGS! Like shit no duh Krysta! Well it may seem like the easiest realization to come to but it really wasn't. Living in a corporate world and a creative one at the same time can be tricky. It's a balancing act but I am so happy to realize that I can do it. It's not impossible. You can teach grade school and be a Youtuber, you can manage a bank and be a digital influencer and you can be a computer scientist and be a fashion blogger. Stop thinking you have to choose one over the other, DO BOTH!
