In September, I’m going into my fourth year of university. And I can’t stop stressing about what I want to do once I graduate.
When people ask me, I tell them I don’t know. I have no idea.
Maybe it’ll help to narrow down my options by eliminating things I don’t want to do.
I don’t want to do more university. I’d prefer sitting in an office than siting in a lecture hall.
I don’t want to travel the world. I do eventually, but I’m not in a position to right out of school. Even if I do travel, it won’t be too far or too long.
I don’t want to take a gap year. I understand other people’s reasoning for doing so. But I don’t have a good reason to take 12 months off. I’ve also been fortunate enough to have 4 months of summer that more or less give me a break from school.
Now to figure out what I want to do.
I want to work. I want to write and blog. Creating content is still so much fun.
I want to learn. As flawed as the school system is, I’ve learned a lot from it. Kindergarten to high school to university. I love learning on my own through reading and researching as well.
I want to grow. To be honest, sometimes I feel stuck. I don’t want to stay in one place. I dislike being stagnant. I hate regressing. I hope to improve. To get better, not worse. When I see myself growing, I feel a sense of satisfaction.
Regardless of what does or doesn’t happen post-grad, I aspire to be better.
