Jana ;)The defining decade?

http://www.ted.com/talks/meg_jay_why_30_is_not_the_new_20#

And then it starts to sound like this: “Dating in my 20s was like musical chairs. Everybody was running around and having fun, but then sometime around 30 it was like the music turned off and everybody started sitting down. I didn’t want to be the only one left standing up, so sometimes I think I married my husband because he was the closest chair to me at 30.” 3 days ago


HelmutI ask

Well, I ask my friends and family what they can picture me doing with my life and they also draw a blank. That seems like a really bad sign to me. A little background: I went to college, but didn’t complete my degree. I’m about 3 classes from finishing it, but I don’t want to finish. I was going to be a teacher for the Deaf/Hard of hearing population. My professors never liked me and made it really hard on me. I became really depressed from all of it. This is a big reason why I’m hesitant to go back to school at all. There’s a part of me that wants to finish school, but I can’t go back for the same thing. I just can’t. I was miserable and realized I couldn’t deal with the politics of becoming a teacher. So, teaching is out. That leaves me with… what?

I haven’t had a decent job for about 2 years now. I moved back in with my parents ‘cause I have no money. Ok I have to stop focusing on the negetives here. I’ve been trying to figure out what I want to do by eliminating all those things I know I don’t want to do. It’s a longer process than I’d like. But, right now, I feel like it’s the only/best option I have. I think if I could figure out what makes me happy, I’d be set. Unfortunately, I haven’t really been happy for a while now. What to do?

That’s right. Join a team of strangers on the internet going through the same thing! :) I honestly think this will help me. Just venting and receiving the odd comment back. I do often feel like I’m the only one lost in this world. But now I know I’m not the only one. So, there’s a small victory if nothing else. :)

UPDATE: Well, wouldn’t you know it? I ended up going back to school and completing my teaching degree. I learned a lot during my break from school and it served me very well. I got a job less than a month after graduating (in December, no less!) and things are going well. I’m glad I went back. I met AMAZING professors this time around and it was a totally different experience. :) 8 years ago

true_blueMaybe something computer-related?

I like solving computer-related problems, so maybe I could study something in that field? Need to do some more research. 2 weeks ago

ch12345Not sure about this one

You shouldn’t have to decide something like this once. Take each day as it comes and adjust your life as you go, continuously. 3 months ago

fallin_dreamsI forgot about this site...

So, I have spent the last two years working hard at this goal. I am in a program to get my Masters degree in Occupational Therapy. I have worked very hard to get both part time jobs and volunteer opportunities to gain hands on experience as well. Hopefully this will at least help with the whole job and financial part of the “rest of my life”. Good luck to everyone else ;) 3 months ago
