Well folks, school is over. Finals have come to a close yet again and it would appear as though I have officially completed my junior year of college. ………………..Wait, what? I’m 3/4 done with my collegiate career. Going through rush as a PNM feels like it was a decade ago; yet running for president seems like just a day ago. Junior year was filled with wonderful memories.
Yet lately I find myself consumed with thoughts of my future plans…..or rather lack there of. As a little girl, I was positive I was the next Britney Spears. In high school, I knew I wanted to be a lawyer. Now, at the most pertinent time in my life, I have never felt more uncertain of what I will do a year from now. Yes, there certainly are plenty of things in-between the next 12 months (Senior rush, cap stone courses, Vegas, Innocents, applications, Dubai, etc). But the fact that right now next May is like a big cliff that I will eventually have to jump off is crazy. I should have a better idea of what I want to do with my life at this point, right? I, like many other people in the world, would be perfectly happy if my job title read: world traveler, writer, volunteer, adventurer.
I know deep down I want to be abroad after I graduate next May. Questions left to be answered will just have to patiently wait while I slowly but surely figure out my purpose. Until then I shall continue to console myself by reading a cherished quote: “Life is either a great adventure or nothing.”
