Now, none of you probably want to read my bitchiness in my Journal and whatnot but I generally dont rant. I'm lucky I normally dont do that often.
Everyone says that college is a time for you to figure out what you want to do with your life: to explore, to see what your good at before you go out into "The Real World". Find your talents and your specialties and build off of that.
But what about when your talents and specialties aren't ones that can necessarily get you places? Or at least, places that you'd want to be?
I have talents for some things, but not anything that I can... well, use.
b) Drawing dragons
c) Designing costumes
Okay, those are all good and dandy. But I cant really do much with any of those, lest I find a job that incorperates them. Or, as others say, a job you can make some money and a living with.
Now I'm thinking to myself: what the hell CAN I do then?
I'm not good in math; I dont like anything with science; medical facts is like learning another language; I have an adversion to food and to people; I work best by myself and not with others; my only strong suits are in the arts; I am an ultra nerd for fantasy and medieval stuff; I hate teaching; needles scare me to death; I cant build, fix or dissassemble a computer or anything mechanical.
I'm sure you all think that to yourself at some point in time: that question of "What am I going to do in life?" question. I went into college and through high school I thought to myself that I wanted to be a writer or something in the arts. But now I realize that that's probably not going to happen, or that it'll be a side career and my main job would be something I despise.
I dont know, I guess I'm just really down about all of this. Funny thing is that I got tis way after I watched this show on G4 called 'Face Off': one of the contestants on it is 21, and her make-up stuff is PHENOMINAL. She obviously knew that was something she wanted to do: how did she actually get where she is at such a young age?
Eh, this is becomming a ramble of a rant now. I'm getting off.
