It’s very difficult to have a solid grasp on what you want to do while you’re in college, you’re so young!

I felt lost when I was in college as well, and I think the cause of this sense of loss stemmed from what my peers were striving for. I saw all these people trying to go into finance, or people doing interesting things like Teach for America, and I lost site of what my goals were, and felt lost. Then I found something that really interested me and just fucking did it, things have a weird way of working themselves out. If you can just focus on the things that make YOU happy, go for it. Don’t let other peoples pursuits confuse yours, because it has absolutely no affect on your own happiness.

What I like to do is write down a list of goals, these can be career oriented, life oriented, or just anything you want to achieve in the next week, month, year, decade… I go back to my goal sheet every once and a while and see how they have changed.

Never be bored. Life is far too amazing to spend being bored. Spend your time doing anything that interests you, and maybe, like how it worked for me, you will be able to make a life out of the things that make you happy.
