    Make My Own Path?

    I'm 20 years and a sophomore in college. Before going to school though, I had dreams of becoming a doctor, until I realized that the work involved in the pre med track is a lot, and I felt that it wasn't in me to work 24/7 on my grades. The pressure would be too intense. Being a...

    Too Much, Too Little Time

    There are too many careers. I just can't decide what to do with my life! I really thought I knew. Ever since I was six I wanted to be a choir director. It lasted up to my  freshman year of college as a music major when I realized I didn't want to be in a classroom all day...

    What To Do???

    I have no idea what I really want to do "when I grow up". I am closing in on thirty and have been in school so long that I could have been a doctor by now. I find that very ironic considering I used to say I wanted to be a doctor but did not want to go to school for 10 + years...
