Am I the only college student here that feels this way ?

I see all my peers studying abroad, landing internships, etc.

yet here I am going into my 3rd year of college and still haven't done a damn thing related to my future, I have no idea what I'm going to be doingwhen I graduate.
I just feel like by now something should have sparked and put me in the right path to my future.

i feel the way you do. i was talking to my high school friends and they are all talking about the progressions they were making in life and i just felt like aloser. and i'm doing things at turtle pace

then i went in the hospital and they had a sign that said "it does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop"- confucius

really touched me because i identified that with school.

I have a job so I don't. But today I past by a Chucky Cheese on the way home that is suppose to open in a few weeks and there was about 100 teens/collegeage looking people waiting for a interview. They were doing interviews in the parking lot. I wonder how many of them felt like losers.

Honestly, you should've been on the grind when you started college.

IMO, the last "summer vacation" a person should have is before college. College summers = internships even if they're unpaid.

thats life for you live and you learn and things happen.

i was 17 when i graduated high school, and was looking forward to everything that awaited me but things changed drasticlly within a year. my son was born5 months after i graduated and i was relagated to managing my time between work full time, school full time, and daddy duties.

i needed to make money right away so i looked at the short term situation started taking less classes and working as much as i could. eventally i was onlytaking 1 class a semester, there was times i got lazy and would take a class and drop it midway through, then i ended up taking 2 and a half years off fromgoing to school and just worked crappy jobs.

i ended up getting into some stupid regrettable legal situations as well which made things more difficult but last fall i just said screw it no moreexcuses, i'm going back to school and i'm going to at least try my best to get on top of everything i should be on top of.

i'm 24 now and i'm barely going to transfer to a cal state school in the fall, part of me is feeling like better late then never but anotherpart of me is just shaking my head at the years i wasted screwing around and i say that because theres other people who manage work, school, and kids so mysituation was no excuse for my past laziness.

You're not the only one. I graduated a few years ago and I still don't know what I want to do with my life. Watch this until around 4:00 minutes or so.




I went to Argentina one time and everyone just seemed to be just sitting around, it was beautiful.
