    Ever Wonder Why The Heck You Were Born?

    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...

    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...
