    Where Has The Time Gone???

    I don't know what has happened to my life. I'm not unhappy with my life but I feel like I should have done more by now. I have no career, I have never been married (not that marriage plays a huge role). I have traveled a lot but would like to travel more but mostly I want to make...

    I'm currently at school. Working, studying, fun things like that. And I know I want to go to university, do a degree, but after that...I just don't know. I have never known. I know what I would like to do...be a teacher. But I haven't got the confidence to do that. So that's out...
