Sorry to be so negative, but it's really not growing up in general that is freaking me out (I love the idea of aging, being wiser (much), and having grandkids!) but what am I gonna do with my life? I'm 19 yrs. old and a sophomore in college....I love school and learning, but I just don't know what I want to "be." Ok, I know what I want to be: a musician who can do it for a living, but I'm smart enough to know I need a back-up plan, plus I think having a degree is very important. So, my question is everyone who has a job they like (and hopefully some who even LOVE)...what did you do to find out that was right for you? I know you can take a bunch of silly assessment tests, but they give you like a list of 1000 jobs and that doesn't help matters much. I was just wondering. When I was in high school, I interned at a veterinary clinic because I thought I wanted to be a vet but then realized it wasn't for me...I also volunteered and "Mother House," an organization that helps young kids who need a nice, fun place to stay while their parents are in crisis (drugs, abuse, etc.) I don't know....my dad's been pestering me a lot lately too because I go to a junior college so I need to find a 4-yr college on top of everything else! BLECH....Just to give you an idea of how many things I think I'd be happy doing, here's a list : Psychologist, English Teacher, Science Teacher, Environmentalist, zoologist, Marine Biologist (maybe), Photographer, Journalist (writer), MUSICIAN, working for a non-profit organization, and the list goes on.... Anyways, sorry to blab..I'm just freaking out, and have soo much to think about. I just would like suggestions, maybe some ideas on how to straighten this mess in my head and heart out.
