One thing I admire about my friends is that for the most part they all are doing something they love or are making strides towards it. One of my lifelong childhood friends inspired me today when she drove all the way to Nashville from Atlanta to audition for The Glee Project. Her passion is singing and she took time out from being a full time student and working woman to pursue her dream, to be a singer.
My other friend is living her dream as we speak. Ever since I met her in 7th grade she wanted to be a doctor. After getting accepted to both her dream schools (John Hopkins and Emory), she is now a full time grad student at Emory living out her dream.
Even my boyfriend is another example. From a kid who loved figuring out how and why things worked, he followed that passion and is now an engineer doing exactly what interested him so much when he was younger.
