I will graduate at the end of next semester. I do not
know where I want to go to school next year or what I want to major in.
Sometimes I wonder if I want to go to school at all. The problem is not
that I have had all these decisions thrown at me suddenly or unexpectedly,
it is that I have put off making them for four years now.
I know that I can do anything that I want to, that I have the
abiliy to successfully achieve anything I focus on. Is this egotism part
of my problem?
Then there is the fear I have of making the wrong decision. What
if I pick a school or major that I end up hating or having no interest in
at all after I get there? Is that a contradiction to my last paragraph? I
realize that I always have the oppotunity to change what I do not like, but
there is also that fear of time and money wasted.
I feel I need the
change of scenery that such an investment would bring, but what if I am
dead one year from now. Will I have wasted my present life worrying about
how happy and successful I can make my future?
As you can tell I am overflowing with worries and questions. In a
way I almost wish I had the identity staus of forclosure pushed on me so
that my future is already planned for me and I could focus on one day at a
time. Then my egotism strikes again and I think to myself "I can go
farther than that." "Do not take the easy way out." The decisions I have
to make are helping to build character., I know, I know.
