Unhappy No motivation whatsoever... - July 13th 2009, 03:06 AM

ok.. so I am 18 years old and I have one year left in high school. I already know what I want to do after high school. I plan on becoming a preschool teacher. I just don't have any motivation to pursue my goals. IDK what is wrong with me but I just don;t care. I don't have a car or my license, a steady job, or good grades... But it just seems like IDC. I'm ok with not having a car. I know I should step up and get my license so I can go ne where I want but I just don't want to... It's like I don't wanna grow up, but I have to. I only have a year till I wnat to be out on my own. I complain all the time about how I want to leave but it never goes past that... I don;t have wut it takes to be on my own but i don't care... Any help with this?

I am in the same boat as you kinda, I am moving out and leaving for college in a few months and Im terrified, so I know how you feel.
Its a scary thought growing up, moving out and being your own person. But you will be fine. I know you will. Its like anything new, you learn how to do new things, you learn how to manage. Think of before you started high school, you were probably scared because it was new to at the time, but you got through it, you survived and you learned how to adapt.
As for now having any motivation, thats not really too much to worry about. You are on summer vaction now I presume [ Im from Ireland, so I dont know what the holidays are over yonder ] But take this time to think about it all. Think is this what I really want? Can you imagine yourself getting up in the morning a few years from now and going into a pre school and spending the day with lil tots and teaching them.
That should give you motivation I think.
For the driving licence, I dont have one either and I would love one to.
But it is a bit of a pain in the bum getting it. But I think it would be worth it in the end. Think of all the pluses you would have by being able to drive and that should overcome the whole hassle of getting it.
Best of luck with things
