    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...

    It's difficult living in today's world where going to college and studying is a MUST in many occupations. I for one have no idea what to do with my life. Years ago when I was little, I would think of who I would be in the future. All of those visions are a bit unrealistic for me...
