Into The Wild
There is a large part of your life that may already be planned out for you, and many times for good reason. Safety and security can help keep you, well, safe. There is no real “formula” to a meaningful life, because it’s something you have to figure out for yourself, but some choices can benefit you more than others. The people around you may already be expecting certain things from you in the foreseeable future: a social media presence, solid grades or extracurriculars that lead to a good college, a prestigious career, meeting the right person, saving for a house, starting a family, saving for retirement, and repeating the cycle with your children.
In this project, we will explore both the external influences that drive your decisions, as well as your personal philosophy that makes your life yours. Chris’ journey will be the outline for our own exploration of self and serve as an inspiration to evaluate the future path we may have in mind.
