    I Don't Know.

    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...

    It's All About The Journey Anyways

    In my own opinion part of what causes us anxiety about being directionless is being too focused on an end and not appreciating where you are in the now. Having said that I am right now at a point in my life where I feel like I am just moving sideways. In that day in day out is an...
