What To Do Now?

Well, I’m stuck. I’m lost and confused. I don’t know what to do.

My friends all have their minds set on one profession they want, on the one thing they want to do. They all seem to know what they want, even when they were little; they knew.

Now, I’m 17-years old. Only 5 months until I (hopefully!) graduate from high school and I don’t even have a clue what I’m going to study. Again, I’m lost, confused and it frustrates me that doubt began to kick in right about the moment I thought I had it.

How did you decide what study programme you wanted to do? Was it something that was just coincidence and you just rolled into the business? Or are you finally living the dream you had when you were a child?

Please, give some suggestions as well. I’d love to hear them. 🙂

    I quite live in the dream, well actually making it happen, you know, I dream big.

    Aaa….5 months is enough time to think, decide, then freeze and work.

    But make sure you decide well before your exams :-P.

    Eat well. Have a sound sleep. Then think and decide..
    Well not an issue if you can skip the “eat and sleep” step.

    *Make a decision*. period. as they say, it’s your life.

    My high school friend and I both entered college as pre-med Bio & Chem majors… We were in the same bio, chem, cal classes… Then I went on an exchange program… I talked to her two years later… and found out we’re both wanting to be elementary teachers. Talk about being weird.

    I understand that you’re lost & confused. But you shouldn’t feel like you’re all alone. I’m 20 y/o and I have yet to figure out what I want to do do and only picked a major when my university forced me to. (I picked Liberal Studies – a sort of self-design major.. I take Latin, Japanese, English, and Elementary Education and combined it and called it Foreign Language in Elementary Education.. so creative, right? It’s a great major for people who 1) can’t choose 2) undecided but have to pick a major to graduate 3) unsure about the future)

    You have yet to be a freshman in college so I don’t see a reason why you have to buckle down with a major… most freshman have to take the general courses anyway so that’ll give you some time to think about and some experience with other courses that you might not be familiar with. Finding a major is a small step in finding out what you want to do in life a.k.a. career.. for some people, it’s quite a long process to figure it out… but I think it’ll be quite rewarding to find out that one thing that you really really love to do instead of going along with what the majority is doing. Again, college is your chance to explore and find out all the possibilities out there.. don’t limit yourself. oh and really sorry for the long msg, I can get quite wordy
