    I used to have all of these aspirations,

    but now I just want friends. Life is too open-ended and scary without people to lean on a little.

    I'd Like A Fresh Start...!

    I've always known what I want to be when I grow up. I've made tons of plans, looked forward to it all. Changed my mind as I learned of more things to see, more things to know and more things to do. Then it stopped. At some point during high school I realised that I was quite...

    I Have No Clue As To Which Direction To Take....

    I am a 26 year, full time employee at a job a dislike. I am also taking classes online, but I feel as if they are a waste of time. While I do not like my job, I like my boss, and the people I work with.  I feel like I should know exactly what I want in life but I do not. Most of...

    This Is Great

    I'll be 20 this year, and I've already been in two colleges, and am in a third and I want to quit again. I hate college, and I really think it's not for me. And it's not so much that I don't know what I wanna do, but that I want to do so much that I just don't know what to do...

    At 26 Years Old, Still Afraid And Clueless...

    I graduated college a few years ago, but throughout my school years up to now I could never shake the feeling that I didn't know what I wanted, what I liked, or what I was good at. Career counsellors at my university gave me tons of aptitude/personality/etc tests to help. I...

    Another thing I hate about myself is that, I am clueless, ignorant, oblivious...I don't have any freaking idea what I want out of this life and what can it offer me! It's not that I am complacent, it's not that a live a life of a fairytale and have nothing to worry about....I...

    My parents always push me to pick something I

    want to do for the rest of my life but I truly have no idea. I have no passions. People tell me I'm good at art, but I don't enjoy it. I wanted to be a chef when I was little. At the moment, I'm sort of interested in learning about psychology. Who knows what I'll be when I grow...

    I Don't Know What I Want To Title This

    I wonder about a lot of things. Sometimes I wonder what my cat is wondering about. I wonder if he wonders too what the point of it all is. I imagine that maybe cats know what is the meaning of life and it's just our human stupidity that causes us to be the only ones not in on the...
