The more you kill yourself with wanting to absolutely know what to do, what is the idea you're searching for, and the more it goes away from you. What you should do is actually let it go, forget this and it will come in no time. The age means nothing, some find their real career in their 30s...Quit panicking ...you keep changing your mind because you're too nervous.
Take it easy and it'll come to you easy.
yes totally i am at the same tage as you. Are you fed up of people asking what are you planning on doing once you leave uni? I am!!!!!!
Im thinking of going Travelling for a bit maybe
You're not wasting your time. You're figuring out who you are and who and what make you happy.
Listen to your mom. Plus, you'll discover once you "figure it out" that you still don't really know what you want to do. That's pretty much what life is -- figuring out the next step. Don't stress too much about it and don't be afraid to make mistakes.
It's actually recognised as an actual problem 'the quarter life crisis'. Don't worry - I did ancient history at uni - went through about 4 different career paths and didn't find my direction til I was 30. But now I'm happy and earning loads of cash. I was in exactly your position. It does get better! Check this out
Your mom is right you know, and it is normal to be confused about which path to take in life. But getting all worried will just slow the process of you figuring out what you really want to do with your life.
try not to compare yourself with others..you are unique and you parents are there for you and telling you to relax what you want will come at some time there is no time frame on that...take care andenjoy what you are doing now!!
Please do not panic! That will only make matters suck worse. You might do what I did, and that is absolutely nothing. I didn't know what to do with my life and so I basically dropped out of college because I thought it was a waste to pay for all this schooling if I don't even use my degree anyway. I thought I would return to school when I was ready... here we are 10 years later, and I still don't have my degree.... never went back to school. I know I could still go back, but it's hard now. Now they want me to take all these courses that I already passed and stuff. Anyway, long story short, don't even worry about it. Pick a general major like business or something, anything, and finish it, and then you'll start from there. You can always get your masters or another BS later, but you'll at least have something.
