Passionfruit. and Other Passions.

How do people find their passions? Is it through the process of continuously doing something that you enjoy? Or does it just suddenly come smack you in the face?

To be honest, the people that I envy most are those that know what their passions are and sacrifice everything in order to pursue these passions.

Personally, I don't believe I have found such a passion. I've always dabbled in things but never really fell in love with doing something enough to commit myself to it. I've danced, swam, done gymnastics, skateboarded, snowboarded, played the piano, trombone, and guitar, as well as sewed, cross-stitched, drew, and took photographs, and SOO many more things that I can't think of at the moment. But the thing is, I always stick with one thing up to a certain point before I get bored and move on to the next thing. Of course, I still do some of these things, but I would not say they are my passions.

Looking at other blogs (ie. KARLA'S CLOSET, authorblog, or Thumbelina), I see people who are able to convey their passions, in things such as art, writing, photography, and fashion. I envy them VERY much! Sometimes I wish someone would just come up to me and tell me what my passion is, just to make things easier. But of course, life does not work out that way. And I'm sure that one day I'll look back and be glad that I'd experienced so many things in order to find my passion in life.

But I guess I might be using this as an excuse for me not being able to truly excel in something? Perhaps I'm too scatter-brained, undecided, or maybe I'm just trying to be good at too many things at once? But whenever I see people who excel in doing something they love because they've dedicated their time and energy for their passions, I'm just like dayumm I wish I had that!

I've been thinking about what I want this blog to be do I want it to be a fashion blog? A photography blog? A narrative-type of blog?

Honestly, I have no clue. I'll probably end up doing a little bit of everything, since that's just what I do. But mostly, this blog is for my thoughts and inspirations, questions and answers, and other ideas that may be floating about in my head.

Anyways, talking about passions makes me think of passionfruit. I don't think I've ever tried passionfruit before, but from the looks of it, it kind of looks like a cross between a fig and a papaya, and I don't like either of those fruits very much...

Why are passionfruit called passionfruit anyways?? Hm..

Oh, and here's a song that I've been totally obsessed with the past couple days!
