    I have no idea what I'm doing.

    I'm going off to college on a few weeks and wanted to take this summer off to figure myself out, but I'm no closer to finding out what I want to do with my life than I was 3 months ago. Sometimes I feel the need to cry at random times and my throat tightens up. And my heart with...

    I know I still have a few years to figure it out

    I Don't Even Want to Be a Fireman...

    I'm 20 years old, halfway done with college, and have no idea what comes next. I have so many ideas and hopes and dreams and desires, but they're all so improbable and unlikely. I don't know what I really like or what I really want. I only know I don't want to be stuck in some...

    I do. But at the same time I don't?

    Maybe I'm just to lazy to commit to anything and to follow through. I lack the drive, I guess. Or maybe I haven't found anything I'm passionate about yet? Feel like I'm too old to be looking for other options. I mean I should go with the obvious choice that'd work for now. But...
