I keep having this nagging thought - maybe I don't want to be a lawyer. Do you know how scary that is? I've wanted to be a lawyer for so long that I just don't know if I have any other options at this point. I certainly don't want to be an HR professional. Also, the degree will open up doors for me. It just worries me because I don't think I've stumbled upon it yet. That one thing I was born to do. There are so many things that I'm interested in and that I could spend my life doing, but I have yet to find a way to tie all those seemingly disconnected ideas together. I love sexuality, feminism, American History, technology, media, theatre, writing, entertainment. Blah! How to unite them all. (Is it sad that the first thing I thought while typing that sentence was - ONE RING TO RULE THEM ALL? Can we add extreme dorkiness to the list?) Anyway, bottom line, I need to figure out my life. This is becoming increasingly frustrating.
I wonder if our generation was ruined by all this "You can do whatever you want." Sometimes I wish my life had a plan. Then again, I know this is the lazy side of me talking and that the fighting, driven, motivated side (hopefully the bigger side) is happy that she has choices and options and a sense of entitlement. I just need to use that to find my way. I'm only 24 years old - I've barely even started my working life. I have plenty of time.
