I moved back to the small town my college is in almost a year ago to live with my boyfriend, and have been unemployed (basically, sponging off him) ever since. I got my BA two years ago! I'm about to turn 25, and I have no direction. I got my degree in Japanese Studies which, while I enjoyed doing it, isn't very marketable, especially around here. Regardless of my major, I've been finding it very difficult to think of a single thing I think I'd really want to do. You know, most people at least have a far-reaching dream job. About all I have right now is some things I think might be interesting, but that seem to require further education to get into. And, really, what's the point of forking over tons of money for a Masters or PhD when I'm not even sure it's something I want to do? I suppose I could get an internship or something (once I finally get out of this town). Hey, at least my personal life is pretty good! I've got something there.
It's hard to feel like you're going nowhere, but not knowing where you want to be just makes it worse. Oh well! I guess I just needed to complain! Thanks for letting me.

wow

this is unrelated, but i majored in asian studies, with a focus on japanese. interesting. i wanted that "dream job" too, but it never happened. i still wish i had decided to teach english for a year in japan, just to have satisfied my needs and improved my language skills [which have deteriorated!]
