They always say that middle school is where you go through the awkward stages of life. But, did anyone ever think to tell us that when you get in your 20′s you could top that middle school awkwardness?
We are all trying to be something we want to be and sometimes we get a little too ahead of ourselves and get a reality check you would have rather not had.
Recently I had an interview with a large company for an internship over the summer that involved journalism. Here I am thinking that I know everything there is to know about journalism and writing. But little did I know that I actually knew NOTHING.
After an embarrassing and awkward 25 minute phone call, I hung up feeling like I didn’t learn a thing about journalism in the past 5 months.
Then I realized that no, I do know a lot about journalism and I can’t just let one horrible interview get me down.
We are all learning in our 20′s and through trial and error we learn even more.
So step out of your comfort zones and do something you would never do.
We are all figuring out what to do with our life, and it’s going to take a few mistakes and uncomfortable moments to get there.
