I need some advice on what to do with school/my life, any suggestions?
I graduated on time from college with a BA in Political Science, which I don’t want anything to do with. I’ve always known that whatever I chose to do in life will need to involve creativity, aka I don’t want to be stuck in an office all day.
So I decided to go to grad school. I know that I am good at being organized, and love art so I thought going to school for Interior Design would be a great idea. I have been in school for a little over a month and I am not sure if this is right for me. A lot of people in my classes are in their late 20s and some are even older. I kind of feel like they are there because they have taken the time and know that this is really what they want to do. I am really not so sure this is what I want to do.
I am not putting my all into this, I am HATING being in school, something I used to enjoy, and I am worried that having 100g in loans to pay off will not be worth it. I also know that no one can truly make a decision for me, but I am wondering what I should.
I don’t want to let my family down but I think that they would agree that if I am not happy, I shouldn’t be wasting time and money. My next concern is that with the job market being so horrible, can I get a decent paying job? I have NO idea what I would want to be doing if I did get a job. I would settle for something just to be making money (like an office job, boo) and try finding something in the meantime but I don’t want to get stuck in a rut.
I am perplexed, confused, worried, anxious… I know that if I stay in school and don’t care, it’s not going to be worth it. I should only be here if I know this is what I want to do. But what if I can’t find a job? What if I do but end up doing nothing with my life because I can’t find something I love?
