Hey Craig, and welcome. A lot of people don't know what they're going to do after high school so you aren't alone there. You have to make the decision that feels right to you and that you think would be best for you, so no one can really tell you what the right choice is
Good Luck

Hey Craig,

The decisions we make for our futures can be difficult ones. Trying to weigh the pros and cons of every option we're contemplating can be a stressful process. Especially when you're trying to think of friends, family and yourself in the process. Even more so when it's a decision that could potentially keep you away for a while. Just try and remember that you have everything you need to make this decision. You have the capacity to think this through and make it through any decision you make. Nothing needs to be made this very second, so try making yourself a list of pros and cons with each decision. Try thinking of the good and possible bad effects to each. It might allow you to think more freely without feeling too overwhelmed.

Either way, I believe as long as you're going to be happy with the decision you make, your friends and family will be supportive. They love you and care for you, and I'm sure want the best for you. Sometimes the best for you means following your current passion and getting a feel for it. If you don't enjoy it, in the end, you can always pursue something else in the future. Sometimes, you can never know what is and isn't the right decision until you live through it to see. Everything you do will add to your life experience and it can point you to a new direction, even if it's not the right decision.

So remember, when you're making these decisions. Take into account the opinions of others, but also remember you need to be able to live and be happy from it too. Your family will support you because they want you to be happy too. : ) You're going to go places in life and this is only the beginning. It's an adventure and you can take your time to decide. The idea will come to you when you least expect it sometimes. Take care of yourself. Believe in yourself.

Have hope,

01 // 10 // 11

Baby stand tall. You can have it all.

Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine..

Spend sometime thinking about it. Meditate on it but make sure that you choose the choice that is in your heart.
