What were my options:
1. No job, no school = drop out and travel
2. No job, school = time with friends and self exploration
3. Job, school = little to no social life (basically a repeat of the last 2 years of my life)
4. Job, drop out of school = money to pay loans
Immediately, I scratched off #1, #4 because well.... those are horrible choices. #1 sounds good... but to travel I need money and for money I need a job. A job inhibits travel so thats a no go.
A friend asked me the other day: "Katie, What are you looking forward to this semester?" My initial response was about how much time I'll have since I'm not in nursing school anymore. But, that got me thinking... my plan was to get a job... job takes up time... therefore I will have no time... How do I get time? No job simple as that.... FALSE! Its not that easy when you have friends, family, and a grandma asking you 24/7 "Have you found a job? Where are you going with your life?" They won't accept the answer of I don't know because I always have known... well, up to this point.
There are a lot of other factors that lead into my confusion: a discontent for the college I attend, my lack of finding a job, my interest in going up to summer camp, and this feeling of I don't know who I am anymore.
This is my goal this semester (and through a series of blog posts): To resolve these factors and rediscover who I am and what I want to do.
