What Do You Do?


I was reading the Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life book by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus and the section talking about job, career, and mission got me thinking. I want to practice answering the "What do you do?" question with my passions and not my job title. It's a concept I'm already familiar with, but I don't necessarily practice it enough. I'm working on developing my new dreams and helping others with their life's purpose, but I don't state often enough what are my passions. This is a good exercise to continue redefining my life and shattering society's expectations. I recommend this quick read if you're interested in understanding the essence of minimalism and make your life even more meaningful.

What am I passionate about?

Well, it's not a huge surprise that I love self-improvement and travelling. I wanted to travel from birth. I was seventeen and I was going to travel agencies to book fake trips! I wanted to know the possibilities and costs! About six or seven years ago, my fiancé introduced me to self-improvement. At first, I was really scared and reluctant. Then he bought me The 7 Habits of Highly Efficient People book. That was it! I only linked travel and self-improvement recently.

I love mathematics, chemistry, astronomy, and physics. I really didn't use to. I rediscovered these a couple of years ago. I got into redoing my elementary and high school mathematics so I could go beyond and understand pure science. Khan Academy is such a great site for this! I recommend it!

I'm a hardcore Disney fan. I have been since I was three. When I go to the parks, I proudly wear my ears, even in the presence of co-workers!

I cry of joy when I meet legendary Disney animators such as Eric Goldberg and Andreas Deja.

I love minimalism. This concept suits me really well, being a fan of optimization, organization, and efficiency. I also love how it brings me to shed brain clutter and keeps me growing on the self-improvement path.

Coding! I love coding in PHP, MySQL, Javascript, and jQuery! I stumbled into that learning Flash and ActionScript. I didn't know how much this would open doors for me and add to my skills set!

I really enjoy learning new languages. I can speak French, English, Spanish, and I have a working knowledge of German and Italian. I recently started learning Japanese, both written and spoken.

I love watching movies and series with my fiancé. We constantly pause and discuss them. It would be a drag for others watching with us. :P When at the theatre, we always wish we could have a remote!

I love yoga! I was a dancer growing up and that's a form of exercise that really resonates with me. On top of it, there's a strong meditation and self-improvement experience linked to it.

Who Am I? I'm many things. I'm passionate about tons of stuff. I love travel. I love self-improvement. I'm a sucker for optimization, efficiency, and minimalism. I renewed with mathematics and science, those are so amazing. Astronomy and chemistry are just plain awesome! I'm a student, a mentor, a traveler, a learner, an artist, an animator, and Disney brings me tears of joy! I love to grow and I will never stop! So who am I? All that and everything else I have not discovered about myself yet. It's a never ending answer!

Qui suis je? Je suis beaucoup de choses. Je suis passionné des tonnes de trucs. J'adore voyager. J'adore la croissance personnelle. Je suis vendue à l'optimisation, l'efficacité et le minimalisme. J'ai renoué avec les mathématiques et les sciences, des mondes tout simplement incroyable. L'astronomie et la chimie sont tout simplement génial! Je suis étudiante, mentor, voyageuse, artiste, animatrice et Disney m'apporte des larmes de joie! J'aime me pousser à fond et je ne cesserai jamais! Alors, qui suis-je? Tout cela et tout le reste que je n'ai pas encore découvert de moi-même. C'est une réponse sans fin!
