Message to a Graduate
I’m beginning to realize that I live a hollow life.
I’m a third year in college with a major in biology. I only chose that major because i had to decide and it seemed like the broadest/safest choice out there. Up to this point, I’ve felt this void in my life increasing as I started to become immersed around people who were starting to find their direction in life. However, I put off answering this question with a vicious cycle.
I would play games until a deadline was extremely close. Then, I would cram to complete the deadline just in time. Then, after it was over, I would tell myself that I would do some thinking about my life after I took a break (playing more games). But I would play games or mess around too much and before I knew it, a deadline was near. All this resulting in a huge waste of time and no time to think.
Sorry if I’m rambling.
To get to the point, I’ve gotten fed up with myself. I uninstalled all my games and if anything, this reinforced my point.
I find myself at a loss for what to do. I’m not interested in anything with a passion, and it scares the shit out of me. The only way I can justify myself being in this major is that I have a vague interest in science, yet I never do any learning on my own time. I guess it’s because I have no passion.
I’m not sure what I’m doing anymore. I don’t know why I’m here. I don’t know what I want out of college. I don’t know what to do from here. I don’t know how to change my life so that I can live a life where i don’t have to question if what I’m doing is right. I should just know.
I’m very lost. Sometimes, I just wish an all knowing entity would just tell me what to do so that I could just do that and not worry about if I’m doing the right thing. Most people don’t know really know what to say.
I’m hoping the Quora community has some advice or steps that I could follow. Anything would be amazing. Thanks so much guys.
