Life projects: family, babies and other ideas

It’s been 2 years since I’m living in Paris. An adventure full of new people, places, ideas and ideals. A series of experiences that gave me courage and opportunities to learn and to grow. Lots of my friends get married now or make plans about babies. I’m 25 and I’m not feeling any excitement about this topics. But there is one thing I’m excited about. New projects.
Last time I wrote about my life here, it was about how you can do anything in Paris. At that time I had a feeling. Now, after 2 years, I have certainties. Fresh graduate from a second master in creative industries, I’ve started to look for a job. This last 3 weeks I’ve been seeing a lot of managers of web design and communication agencies, serious games and collaborative web start-ups. And that made me think about…creating my own job.
Today I’m on the verge of signing the papers to create my own business. Even if some say I might change my mind, I don’t feel like a family type. I don’t want babies. But I really, really want to create environments where ideas make babies. This is my life’s project and today I feel ready to take all the risks to make it happen.
