WANTED: A Change in Perspective

For the past few weeks, I’ve been in a seriously introspective mood. Questioning myself, my decisions, and a few other things. For the past few years, my goals have been simple: Finish and graduate from school. Move out of Ma Dukes’ house and get my own place (with cable and air conditioning). Find a job to support myself.

Now that I’ve reached those goals, what’s next?

I can say without a shadow of doubt in my head that I don’t want to push paper for the next 40-50 years. So, the next logical step would be to create another set of goals to attain and surpass, and then start working on that.

But here’s the thing. I don’t know what I want to do now.

Of course, I have lifelong goals which include going to (and staying consistent with) the gym, attain a respectable portfolio and of course to start a family (in the DISTANT future lol). But as far as career-wise?

Yeah. That’s where I’m not so sure.

I’m starting to realize that, although Civil Engineers make GREAT money, it’s not really where my passion lies. I love to design roads and all, but it’s not something I could see myself doing for the length of my career. I’ve been getting excellent feedback from my Photography but I’m nervous about pursuing that (although I LOVE to do it).

So how would I go about trying to figure out what I want to do with my life? A change in scenery, perhaps? Finding a new hobby or two? Hanging out with new people? I’m really at a loss for ideas.
