    My Future

    I do not know what I want to do yet. I am 21 years old and I have no clue what I want to study in college; what I want to become; or even where I will be in 5 years from now. So far I have seemed to accomplish completing High School and half...

    True.

    I have no clue about my future, or even if I will have a future. Much more of one, anyway.

    Don't Know What Ahead

    It a pain in the *** when someone asks you what you want to do when your older but truthfully, I'm 16 I can't really go around at this age actually choosing what I want to do with my life because that's just unessential pressure. Yeah some people are able to choose but it's hard...

    I have no clue what I want to do in the future... I'm graduating school with a degree soon, but don't have any plans for an internship, law schools, grad schools, or jobs... I have a scant résumé but I feel like I do possess skills that a company needs... It's just difficult to...

    Without A Clue

    I have NEVER known what to do about my future. At school you'd always be asked "what do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer was always "I don't know." Unfortunately I'm now almost 39 and still none the wiser. Experience has proved countless times that making plans is...

    It's Totally Unknown

    But I'm glad that it is. I don't want to know my future, at all. I don't want to know what's going to happen in the days to come, or the months to come. Why would I? It's completely amazingly exciting! Not to know whats going to happen in the next moments!
