…let the young man speak…

Love, Hate, Life

No one told me I had to have a future plan. You know what I’m talking about, what you’re going to do once you graduate from high school. Some people go to college , some choose the military as their path, and some drop out. My mom would never consider the latter option as being apart of my future and I love her for that. She motivates me to do my best so that I can get in the best college. But here’s the catch, I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. The clock for me to make a decision is slowly running out and now I’m panicking. So many other kids at my school know what they want to do. Not me.

Yes, I’m good at math. But should I be a math teacher? I don’t think so because I don’t really like kids…

  1. I totally agree with this post – I’m at university myself at the moment and I have no plan further than that, but constantly being hounded at what comes next. It’s annoying, I want to enjoy what I’m doing instead of constantly worrying. And what’s wrong with just waiting to see what happens?! Big believer in spontaneity.


    • I don’t think I decided on my major until I had to…Spanish. Why? Because it was my best subject. After that I went on for a 5th year in elementary ed, hoping to teach Spanish. I did not go on to teach, however, since I’d decided I didn’t want to babysit children and that’s what it felt like during my stint as a “practice teacher.” Part of earning my 5th year. I never felt college was a bad decision because it helped me get all the jobs I worked from that point on. Having a college degree meant I was a serious contender for employment.

      So take your time, but know that whatever you end up doing with your life after college…it’s good. Nobody gets to tell you what to do with YOUR life, but you. After all, you’re the one who’s got to live it, no one’s going to do it for you, so yes, listen to good advice, but always choose what’s best for you. Your gut instinct won’t let you do it any other way. hugs as you go your own way… 😉


  2. I happened upon this high schooler’s blog because he “liked” one of my posts. He’s quite the good writer, and I especially liked what he said in this post so that I decided to reblog it here. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did…hugmamma. 🙂


      • Sorry…I could blame it on senility. But I’d better not, since that may come back to haunt me. Better to take it like a man…even though I’m a woman. But you knew that…right!? 😉


        • I’m not even going to lie, when I first read your comment, I didn’t get it. But after a quick Google search of the word “senility” and it all became clear. It really made me smile 🙂 I love your sense of humor!


          • Aw shucks. What if I told you I’d have loved being a stand-up comic…in my own living room. I’d have been too tongue-tied to get up on a stage. My daughter, a professional ballerina, is the one with guts. I’m the shy, retiring, bashful one. ha, ha…yeah, right. 🙂


hugs for sharing some brief thoughts...and keeping them positive
