There are times in your life when you simply have to sit back, take a break, and do some deep thinking.
For me, this is one of those times.
My year at Missouri State was pretty much a failure, in my eyes, at least. I made some great friends, but am only one step closer to discovering what I really want to do with my life.
That one step was discovering that I don't want to teach. I find there's no point in trying to teach someone who has no interest in what you're saying.
I love museums. So maybe a degree in museum studies?
That's my new goal.
Last month, my parents took me out to dinner to ask what I was doing with my life.
"My biggest fear is waking up in twenty years and realizing I've wasted my life doing something I don't care about."
I care about? A lot of things. What do I care about enough to spend the rest of my life with it? I have no idea. My life so far is pretty basic... I pick something up, I get bored and throw it away.
What I need is a career counselor. Someone to help me discover what I really love.
For now, I'm taking a break from college (though a chance at a couple of classes at community college wouldn't be bad) to discover myself, get a job, and think further about this move to Colorado.
And perhaps a new start on dA. We'll see.
