Looking for advice - November 8th 2012, 02:07 AM

Hello everyone,
I'm looking for someone who can basically give me some advice. I'm 18 years old, and I'm currently going to a college that I've been attending sense 11th grade, I started early because of good grades. However, I've really been feeling unmotivated lately, and I don't know why. Some days after school I will also come back to my house and feel like nothing is worth doing, like I'll usually read or play a video game or something, but sometimes I just lose all interest in doing things. I still live at home, because the college I'm going to I'm going to is a community college, so I'm wondering if it has something to do with that. I really have no idea what I want to do with my life, and anything I can think of never seems to be very exciting to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this has been an ongoing thing for a while now.

Hey Chris, I can understand this. Sometimes whenever us humans get in a habit of doing things, they become boring or uninteresting after a while.

I'd like to ask, do you have depression or a history of such?

And as to the 'not knowing what you want to do with your life,' think about it. Like really sit down and sort out things that sound fun or interesting to you. Write down what you do like doing now and go from there.

So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."

What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?

Hi Chris, I felt this way earlier this year. I too was going to a community college, but I fell behind & dropped out. =/ try to stay motivated. This is your future. I regret it & I want to go back. Also, it's completely normal to not know what you want to do with your life. It's a big decision! You can always change your major if you're not interested in yours anymore. It helps when you're in classes that actually interest you. good luck!

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.
