I’ve been trying to figure out my recent blogging funk, and I believe I’ve figured out one of the more influential reasons. Lately I seem to be having a bit of a career crisis. What I mean is that I’m nearly 30 (many of you may be thinking that’s not very old, but it feels pretty old when you start to approach it :)) and I’m coming to the realization that I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.
It seems to me that college basically prepares you to do one thing and now I’ve realized that I’m not sure that’s want I want to do the rest of my life, but I have no training to do anything else. I’ve thought of a couple of other options, such as becoming a librarian, but I can’t afford the graduate programs I have looked at. I also looked into law enforcement, which might seem kind of strange, but the pay cut would be too great for my family to manage.
So for the moment I’m stuck, and it’s dragging me down. I’m not sure of my chosen profession and I don’t like my job or my working environment.
Sorry if that sounded whiny, my intention was merely to explain, not to seek undeserved sympathy, things can obviously be a whole lot worse…
