Hey all! I’ve been thinking about my future, just some general musings about where I’m headed in life. Despite all of my thoughts on the issue, there seems to be one recurring answer to my endless stream of questions: I just don’t know.
Really though, I have no idea. I know that by twenty, almost twenty-one, this is something that I am suppose to at least have an idea about, but I don’t. I guess you could say I’m totally lost. I don’t have any passions that could turn into legitimate full-time careers, and to be frank, I’m not just not that into pursuing a college degree for something that I have no drive for. It just doesn’t make sense to me and it doesn’t motivate me at all.
Now I’m not saying I’m going to drop out of college. But I am saying that it could be time for a break, just to figure some things out.
Now I know what some of you are probably thinking: What about pursuing your art goals?
Well I’m not really sure anymore that’s something I want to make a career out of. I do very much love art and I love to draw, but I am pretty sure that I prefer it as a hobby rather than a job. Drawing helps to relieve stress for me, but I’m almost certain that it won’t do that once it becomes a job. I mean when does a job ever relieve stress?? Don’t jobs (unless you really, really love your job!) generally cause stress? I don’t want my art to become something that I dread doing.
I really would like to eventually blog full-time and possibly branch out to YouTube, but that won’t happen immediately. So what to do in the meantime?
Well I’m considering a road trip over the summer to get some perspective on the issue. You see, perspective is everything, and if I can get away for a bit on my own then maybe I can see where my life is going – or should be going – from an angle that I haven’t faced before. At least that’s the plan so far. Actually, that’s my only plan.
Anyway, I made this post because I know that probably a few of you are going through the same uncertainties about life as well. So let’s face the uncertainty together! 😉
