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.
