I’m a 22 year old college graduate. Technically one full year since graduation, though in reality I’m only 6 months removed from my college education. I spent three and a half years in a university with a firm grasp of what I wanted to do for my future. Then, of course, that all changes when I actually looked at myself and realized what I really wanted for myself. Since then, I’ve basically narrowed it down to two options. The sad part? Both options are equal parts ambitious as they are virtually impossible to get into as well as impractical, especially with my experience (or lack thereof…).
I’ve dreamt of being a musician ever since I was a kid, but never thought too seriously about it because of its incredible impracticality. I’d need to make good music in order to even get a slight chance. More recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that my love for the NBA and for writing would make an awesome career in sports journalism. But then again, how far can I go with zero journalism experience? Shit, should I restart an undergraduate career in communications to help myself get opportunities?
I could try and pursue teaching like I always thought I would. I have always respected teachers in the highest regard and I love the idea of giving knowledge and wisdom to others. But for me, it’s a matter of if I would even be successful doing so and if it’s something I would be motivated enough to do well.
I know I’m only 22 and still have my whole life to figure things out, but I’m also out of that bubble in which I feel like I have all the time in the world. Maybe I spent too much time trying to get through college instead of using it to figure out how everything I was doing would help my future. Or maybe I’m more so upset at myself that I entered college so sure of something and edned up leaving college more unsure than ever.
Or maybe I just don’t know enough about anything that would help make my path clearer to me. Blah blah blahdiblahdiblah quarter life crisis blahdiblahdiblah blah.@11 months ago with 6 notes
