Choosing a Life after College

3 years, 11 months ago

As daunting and terrifying as graduating from college can be, the most difficult part as it might reveal is choosing the life that you want to live after college. The "practical and realistic" path would be to choose the "normal conventions" of life (get a job, work 9-5, be a part of the rat race-you know) but that’s for the play-it-safers. So, here I am, with less than two months left in my college career, thinking: What should I choose?

What are your suggestion and advice for choosing a more "uncoventional" choice of life (kind of like Jordan’s)? Knowing these things would give my real desires and bliss more confidence.

Well, what did you go to school for? It seems like your options would depend upon what you studied.

Well look. The unconventional role is still a role, so firstly don’t think as yourself as so different from anyone else, we’re all in this together. Do what needs to be done first and what makes you happy regardless.

That’s … one of the things I’d like to know, too, I guess. As a high-schooler, even college sounds a bit daunting.
Are you just finishing up an undergrad degree or graduate school?

Noemi, I am only a freshman in college but I have thought about this several times over the past year. It would seem that I am still wide-eyed and full of wonder because I am certain that I am going to do whatever makes me happiest. It seems that in today’s world, and especially in this economy, the only thing people are concerned about is the amount of money they will make. Of course I have no idea what you have studied or what you have already considered, but from my limited information of your life, I suggest that you take a deep look into your heart as well as your options. You never know what sort of opportunities you may stumble across! Also, even if you take on the “conventional” role in society working 9-5, there is always the possibility that it will lead to something spectacular!
