On Defining a Profession from Scratch

Hey, Sebastian.

I've been thinking about how you're a strategist. What does that entail? How do you go about getting into that area of study? How do you start learning about such a broad field?

My ideas for my life are fairly big and broad, making it difficult to know where to start. I know about the principles of kaizen, taking small steps that compound into something big, but there's still the question of which small steps (out of the 1000 possibilities) to start with. I'm hoping your experience with being a strategist might give me a few ideas.



Money Matters

On Turning Into Black And White

Okay, so I'm not really one who's into the whole I'm-gonna-get-a-job-I-don't-like-as-long-as-it's-paying-good-money scheme. I remember having a career day back in high school, where I told this psychologist who's advertising BS Psychology to us that I believe that work fulfillment due to you actually doing something that you love is more important that work fulfillment due to the amount of money you earn. I told her that I wanted to be a teacher. She told me that it was just hormones. Now I'm studying in one of the most prestigious universities in the country and I'm still planning on being a teacher someday. But with all the things I want to do, and the fact that I actually do need money (especially for my course, because it's heavily focused on art and literature) then I know that I have to do something to earn some.

I don't like asking money from my parents. I'm not a baby anymore, and I don't live at home because my school's pretty far. Yes, we actually do have the money, but it's not exactly free-flowing. Besides, education is expensive as hell, since I'm in college and my sister's studying in a fashion school. Then there are the bills to pay and the list goes on and on.

I tried using AdSense but the problem is WordPress doesn't allow it. I can't pay for premium either. So I figured I should take a student job somewhere near my dorm so I can earn some money while I'm in college. I also emailed my professor in my HUM141 class (Introduction to Aesthetics) because she posts internship opportunities in our Facebook group.

So I met up with my professor earlier, and she told me that she got my email. She said they don't have paying jobs (unfortunately), but if I'm interested I can be an intern, and if I am then when would I like to start.
