Baby Steps

Hello Blog,
     I went to my schools career center today and took yet another online career aptitude test from 1993. Ok, maybe not that old, but it was still pretty ancient. Journalism apparently isn't a major according to this test and interior design is NOT one of my options, yet this field is my number one goal right now. Half of the careers it showed me are all things I either have no skill in (singing, dancing, choreography, etc.) or that I have absolutely no interest in (cosmetologist, teacher, director of religious activities, etc.). Never the less, at least I am taking steps to figure this whole college thing out, but I still have a long way to go and two more years of college to finish. ugh! I know one thing in my life I want to be for certain: 

to life,

Remember that...

In a Rut

Hello blog,

   I am new to the whole "blog" scene so bare with me. I am starting my blog because I am currently lost in life and need to find myself to make something of my life. Let me give you the background...for anyone out there reading this. I am 20 years old, a junior in college, and am currently majoring in "what the fuck do I do with my life" or what most colleges call "undecided". I started my college career at Southern Illinois University Carbondale as an interior designer, but without even taking a course I freaked out and decided to take general classes. From there, I took a nutrition course, loved it, and decided nutrition was my career of choice. Once I decided that I knew I didn't like being at SIUC and craved the city life in Chicago. My first semester sophomore year I was accepted to the University of Illinois at Chicago and life was good. I attended classes for 2 semesters and suddenly decided nutrition was a bust. So here I am, 20 years old, living in the city, unemployed, taking one french class at a Chicago community college and three online classes at the suburban community college near my home. Absolutely, totally, and completely lost. So heres to those lost like me, whether you're in high school, college, or 40 years old at a job you despise. This is my documented journey of finding who I am, what I want to become, and how to find my true happiness state. I may not have any followers now, which is fine, but I hope at least one person can relate and benefit from my story.

here goes nothin,
