(Not to be confused with That Awkward Moment with Zac Efron and Vince Howard from FNL.)
I wrote this post the other week about not knowing what I want to do with my life. I’ve been thinking about it more, and I think it’s because I don’t have a plan.
In college I always had a plan. I went out of my way to get two internships, my last one with my current company, and I knew my sophomore year I was going to get my master’s degree. During my senior year, I stayed in touch with my former boss, and luckily they offered me a job a week before graduation.
I always had a sense of where I was going or what I wanted to do.
And now I feel like I don’t.
I worked hard in college because I knew I would need the experience after graduation. I stepped out of my comfort zone and got involved on campus. I thought I had an idea of what I wanted to do with my life.
My job is great experience, but I know I’m not going to stay there forever. So what am I supposed to do next? I thought getting a master’s degree would help me figure out my plan, but right now, I’m still planless.
Universe: give me some kind of sign.
Do I stay living at home? Do I move out? If I do, could I stand living on my own? What does my next job look like? Do I need to have it all figured out?
I’m just trying to take it one day at a time. My second job starts in less than a month, and I’ll be happy to see my girls again. (For those who don’t know, I work at an ice cream shop. It was my first job, and I pick up a couple shifts on the weekends.) I have plans to go visit one of my friends from college in a few weeks in Rhode Island, which I’m looking forward to. And I’ve started running again.
I’m not sure if the time off these last few months has me overthinking, but I just feel a little lost lately. Can anyone give me some kind of direction?
