Question dont know what to do when im older - February 12th 2012, 10:15 AM

ever scince i was young i have wanted to be an author when i grow up. im a bookworm and my parents have always told me i will grow up to write books. i may have some imaginative ideas, but i cant make the words look right on the page. no wi am starting to wonder if it was my idea to be a writer, or if the people around me said it and i started to think that's what i want. other jobs i have wanted are; a fashion designer, an artist, a pop star. nothing i've ever wanted seems that stable, and now im in high school, just a few years to go, and i cant think of anything that i can do when i leave school.

Believe me when I say that you do NOT have to decide what you want to do with your life just yet. I mean, I'm in second year of undergraduate studies at university and I'm still trying to decide between a career in Business or Law - or both. While I understand that it's confusing for you, try to relax and take it one day at a time. I promise - you will one day find what you're truly passionate about and then you'll know what to do.

I agree with what the above poster said. I mean, I'm 23 years old and I'm STILL deciding what I want to do with my life. I went to university and three years into my degree I decided it wasn't what I wanted, so right now I'm in the process of figuring out just what that is There's so many options out there, and I think you should take all the time you need to explore them.

I'm in my second year of University and know what I want, but there's a lot of paths I could take from where I am. Up until now, I haven't really known what I want. When I turned 19, I decided Law was right for me and I wasn't happy in Business, I.T. or Math/Science.

The easiest thing to do is chase what you want at the moment, and if you decide it's not right for you, you can always change.
