Not sure what to do with life.

Studying the wrong things. Caring about the wrong things. Not sure what to do.

Just maybe...

You might meet with a career counsellor... or a professional sociologist/psychologist?

Of course... I'm just grasping at straws. :(

I truly wish I could be of more help...

Well...

Maybe you'd be a good underwear model? They always look happy. Send samples to jeff@oasismag.com, and I'll give you an honest critique.

As I've said before, though, it seems like you equate your major with one specific path/career in life, and my question is whether that is useful. It certainly isn't true.

Beyond that, the second question would be (third, if you're still debating underwear modeling) what do you want to be doing with your life? You always denegrate what you are pursuing and the seemingly narrow choices it will offer you in life (again, likely untrue), but you never explore what you would rather do. It is less relevant to be on the wrong path and disliking it, as long as you are putting more equal or more energy toward the solution.

What do you want to be doing?

Who do you want to be?

What do you want to be caring about?

It's easy to make bad life choices and to question and dislike them. I've spent enough of my life doing that. The real work starts when you are ready to change, and start arcing your life in a different direction.

So, what are those answers?
