    God. I feel the more I go to college the more

    I'm wasting my life away. Honestly this isn't what I want to do and this isn't who I am. Why would I want to go to college and study something I have no interest for? I don't understand my goals as a student and just do college. I can't and the thought of this poisons my mind...

    I'm almost 20 and have not gone to college yet.

    I'm terrified of failing and I have no idea what I want to do. I feel so pressured to get a job and go to school and it hurts. I'm so lost.

    Recently ive been lost in my relationship.

    In the beginning it was great and magicail. All was good until I read a series of messages my bf had shared with a ex. It was pretty much a conversation talking about how they still likes each other and want to see each other. I was heart broken ready to break up with him. But...

    I graduated college 4 years ago.

    I had 2 job experience, and both of it is not even more than 5 months. I am not happy to it and keep on quitting. I am so bored in my life. I don't know why I feel this way...I feel like I am not contented on what I have and can't find happiness in what I am doing.. :(

    I never had set plans in life

    but I did know what I didn't want and now I'm dealing with what I didn't want.. I know, I have to make changes if I'm unhappy.. Just need to figure out what I want in life and where I want to be. If I don't make a move, my life will be chosen for me..

    took me a while i know. and so i was playing around with it for a little bit, and i hate how the keyboard is so small. in short, i have no clue how to use it. and i have found out that playing with the box it came in is more fun than having the phone XD

    I'm about to finish university.

    Since the first year, I started realizing that I did not like this course (or, more like the profession it will lead to), But only half way through did I find something else that I think I will like. I didn't quit the course because my parents and my friends all told me not to...

    I think it's normal though,

    you feel me? I guess it's one of those things you're suppose to figure out as you go. Otherwise it wouldn't be nearly as fun. Don't get me wrong, life can ******* suck. Still, I think part of the appeal of being alive is getting through those rough patches.

    I just don't know. I don't know what I'd like

    to do for the rest of my life. I just want to have a career that I wont grow hate, something that won't make me dread getting out of bed every morning, but I don't feel like I truly know myself or what I really want yet.

    I don't have a future plan,

    and even if it did I don't think I would be so enthusiastic about it. Everyone seems ready for the future and can't wait for it to come sooner. But my only wish is for it to slow down. Why can't the world slow down... but most importantly why can't I catch up.
