Oh no! I've just finished high school and I've been thrown out into the real world. What do I do?
Honestly, I have no idea.
All throughout my years in school I haven't found anything that really sticks out to me. If you're familiar with my previous post, I mentioned how I wanted to be an author. While I do say that, I don't think I would be able to support myself on that. But let's not talk about that right now, talk about this:
I'm a high school graduate, I don't have a whole lot of experience with many things, I have a job at a movie theater, I don't want to go to college right away (I'd rather wait a year or so before going). I don't know exactly what I'd like to do. I'm interested in trying to learn Astronomy along with a few other things, but I don't know if I'd like anything I'm thinking of. In short, I don't know what I want to do with my life for a career. There are days where I sit down and think, "Maybe I'm not meant to be around for very long?" I feel like I should have figured out my calling by now, or at least had an idea.
Does anyone have any advice what I should do? Should I go to the local community college branch and see if they can help place me in something I might like? Or should I just take it slowly and go figure it out myself in a few years?
