Let's Chat #13: Where am I going?

Hi guys,

I realized I owe you guys a "Let's Chat", considering I haven't done one since NYE.  So although the title of this post looks like a desperate cry for help, it really isn't.  (Sorry if I alarmed you).  This post is going to be about your future, which I'm looking at right now in my crystal ball.  *Sigh* If only it were that easy to tell where you would end up a few years from now.  


The truth is many of us are approaching that time in our life where we are stressing about where we will be a couple years down the road (college), it can be a bit stressful and intimidating.  It is intimidating to think that the major you are pursuing can determine your work life.  I think this happens to most people in college because unlike high school where your schedule is set up for you, everyone is put at a crossroads and is forced to choose.  In college more responsibility forces you to think more about what you want.  Also although I mentioned college people this applies to others as well.

Most of the pressure I am facing is to make the right decision and more importantly answer the daunting question...  "What on do you want to do with your life?"  This question does not only apply to future careers but, everything; that's what makes some people duck and cover.  Although I am not completely certain as to my answer the previous question,  I am not crumbling under the weight of it.  Many people I know are haunted by that question.  I'm writing to say, "relax", most people don't know exactly what they want in college, just try to find your way.  Find something you like to do and do it, as cliche as that sounds it is true.  If you feel like you are completely lost make a list of things you don't want/want to do, now you know what to avoid.  Get to know yourself, don't just follow what your friends are doing.  Also you are allowed to change your goals in life as you grow it is completely OK (that should take a little pressure off).

I hope this helped someone who is struggling with this issue right now!

  2. So true, I finished my undergrad a while ago, and still I feel like there are so many things that I would like to do. Yes the pressure is tough sometimes. So far I'm happy doing what I'm doing but, I know I can change it at any time. Great post!
