Peter Pan... Where Are You?

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

"What major are you going to pick?" "What do you want to be when you grow up?" "What college are you going to go to?"

I am on the brink of insanity with all of these questions coming at me. What makes it worse? I don't have any answers.

When I was in fifth grade, I had to plan out my entire higher education/career path along with a specific college, tuition costs, and how I would afford the added expenses of a dorm, meal plan, books, etc. Then near the end of eighth grade, it was as though I became an entirely new person. I no longer wanted to be a teacher or start off at a community college... I wanted to travel the world, live in a big city full of even bigger opportunities, and start off my freshman year of college at a university that would include inter mural sports, parties, and loads  of clubs and organization. Also, as I realized how corrupted today's educational system had become, I no longer wanted to be a teacher. This moment is when I finally understood that I would continually be evolving. Who I am today is not who I will be in a year. I'll have learned more, understand more about life, met more people, seen more places, and have had more adventures. I'm not done growing today, I wasn't done growing then, actually, I'll never be done growing.

So here I am, as clueless as I was at that moment. It's kind of a scary feeling... then again... there is something comforting about realizing how much freedom I have to plan my future. I might not know what it is that I want to do, but once I figure it out, I have no doubt in my mind I'll achieve it. And after I achieve that, I'm sure I'll have some new big idea I'll be aiming to make a reality.
