The Trip of Destiny

Yesterday, as I waited patiently in que amongst the throng of CSUCI graduates I spent a good five minutes reflecting on what an insane adventure I’ve been on for the last four years. The Balloon Project and all of the tremendous experiences I was privy to by doing it, the CO2 lasers that I kept in my dorm, the Nut Crusher… and for a brief moment I was tempted to go speak with each and every one of my teachers who were to be giving me a grade that semester and request that they fail me, just so I could keep on keepin on in the way I have grown so accustomed to.

I literally punched myself for my stupidity. I don’t go to class, I don’t do assignments, lectures make me suicidal, and homework tickles my gag reflex. Traditional school is not the place for me in the least. The only reason I graduated in the timely fashion that I did was because CSUCI has a hidden secret major–Liberal Studies concentrated option–that allows all those who are secure with the idea of a practically worthless degree (from an academic perspective) to explore as many disciplines and topics that they would like for four years. That and the fact that I had a few teachers who broke the mold when it comes to teaching and flexibility, that is why I graduated.

I think the reason for my angst has something to do with the fact that I have been in school for the last 16 years of my life and that has been my primary source of life experience. What more could I possibly know about life outside of academia? I’ve had my fair share of jobs–lugging around Christmas trees, waiting tables, mowing lawns and then sub-contracting the neighborhood kids to mow my lawns for me (at a much lower rate)… But seriously, how scary is the prospects of *gasp* getting a job? And why is it scary? I’m sure there are so many neat and exciting professions and experiences available for the taking, but how do I find out about them–and how can I get to know the world outside of school a little bit better?

So this is my big plan: Readers–new and old–of iamkosta.org– Do you do something that you feel is completely interesting? What is your greatest idea? Do you happen to know of a certain group, company, or organization that is doing something truly unique and interesting? I would love to hear about it, and I would love to come see it.

I will be getting in my car in one week and embarking on an adventure of a lifetime. I will be visiting some of the most interesting places to learn more about the jobs and opportunities available, I will be meeting the most brilliant minds in hopes of creating partnerships and to learn more about the people that I live amongst. I will be on the hunt for the people that have new ideas and new experiences to share with me. If you, your company, or someone you know is up for a visit and a chat, so am I, e-mail me: kosta@iAmKosta.org

My journey will be documented on IamKosta.org in photographs and in writing. Stay tuned to iamkosta.org for updates!

    Try not to be so full of yourself. The world is a big place, many people have done a lot more interesting things without the time or desire to document them as thoroughly and aesthetically as you have.

    That is a fantastic bit of advice, thank you so much for sharing. When I create my next website I’ll try to name it something else like, iamNOTkosta.org and then I’ll try my darndest not to document the things I’ve created as much because other people are doing more interesting things. Question though: If I’m not supposed to be full of myself, who else am I supposed to be full of?

    If only life were so easy as to ask a group of anonymous/not so anonymous visitors to a website (or an eight ball for that matter) which career/life direction to take. I’m sure you know that’s not true.

    You’ve got so much energy and passion. I think it’s time for a bit of self realization. Turn inward and figure out what YOU are most passionate about. Once you’ve dug deep and figured out which direction you want to go in (Renewable energy, Medical Research, or some other field) you just have to take the plunge. That’s the gamble. That’s life.

    You may find out twenty years from now that you could have made better choices, but you’re not going to beat youself up over that. Dig deep, find your passion and go for it.
