    I have absolutely no clue.

    I love the theater I love movies. I love watching the behind the scenes stuff. But I have no idea what my talent is! I know I can't sing, and I'm good at other stuff, I can't dance. But there's nothing I'm great at.

    My purpose is to do great things

    for GOD in life. Love people, forgive, and die and be with The Lord. Before JESUS my purpose was temporal. If my purpose was for a boyfriend or whoever else, people die and people leave.

    My mom's newer boyfriend has practically

    convinced her to move to Florida. That's great for her and all, but I won't be able to afford rent by myself. I can barely handle my car and insurance payments while buying groceries. Well, I guess we shall see what happens come June.

    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 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 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.
