Plans for the Future

posted on 30th of august, 2008

Lately I have been doing a lot thinking of what do I truly want to do in the future. Photography has been a hobby that I earn a little money here and there through Dreamstime but do I want to make Photography a full time job or just keep it as my hobby which I greatly enjoy. I have also been contemplating for a few years now do I want to go for a degree in Zoology. Either decision I was planning on going back to college for.

After doing a lot of thinking and talking things over with my husband I have decided to go the route of going back to college for a degree in Zoology. I will not be starting school until January so lately I will be refreshing myself on Math, English and Science since it has been over 10 years since my last college course I ever took. I am completely nervous about going back to school.

I chose Zoology over Photography because I have a natural connection with animals and I am happiest when I am with animals. Plus I want to help them in any way that I can. I know zoology is going to be a hard subject to tackle but I know I can do it. I already love learning any thing I can about animals especially mammals. Photography I will still keep as my hobby that I make money here and there on but I do not want to make it a job because photography is relaxing to me.

When I am not taking photographs or reviewing what photographs I am going to upload to Dreamstime I am studying studying studying. Now that I took a quick break from studying to write this blog it is time for me to get back to it. :)

You are so hard working!!!
It needs tremendous courage to go back to school, especially for a person away from college for 10 years.
Hope you enjoy your life in college and win more success on photography.

Congratulations! I wish you every success with your new endeavor. It seems that now you will be working closer than ever with the animal, a great opportunity to combine your Zoology degree and your photography skills!

About me

Update November 17, 2010: Earlier this year I made a decision that I would not be selling my photos any more but would start removing my photos in November. I would like to thank everyone that has given me wonderful comments on my photos the past several years and to the the buyers that have bought my photos. I now will only be displaying my photos for show in a photography journal that I have created which you can find the link listed under my website.
