    I don't know. Everyone is always telling me

    that I have to be one thing and one thing only. But no, I want to be a nurse, a musician, a marine biologist, an editor. But I HAVE to chose one thing to do for THE REST OF MY LIFE. But I don't want to live that way. I don't want to have every little aspect of my life planned, I...

    I don't know what I'm supposed to do with my life. I'm at the prime of my youth, I'm smart, funny, pretty, in a good relationship...everything most young women dream of. But sometimes, I just don't know what I'm supposed to do. It's like I am standing in front of an ocean of...

    I have a lot of interest like Politics,

    Philosophy, Psychiatry, Religion but I also love music, makeup, art, and interior decorating. If I had enough money, I'd be like Jennifer Lopez in Monster In Law. But I'd go to school forever and just be a temp in everything. Do something different every day. Life's too short...

    Why Can't I Take The Road Less Traveled By?

    Am I the only one who thinks its ridiculous that we have to choose what we want to do with our life at such a young age? I'm 16. In two years, I'm supposed to have everything figured out. I should be headed off to a great college to study in a great major and get a great job and...
