I recently came across of this post Turning a New Page by Questions from a teenager and it got me thinking about the time I was about to go to college. Senior year in high school was fun but it was also tough, I was in that rough time of my life because of so many reasons that I don’t want to disclose or even remember but at the time I’m feeling all these mixed emotions mostly feeling lost while everybody knew what they were going to do after they graduate or what college course they wanted and I didn’t really thought about what I was going to do after high school, I just know that I’m going to college and I’m going to take a business course because that’s the easiest and I’m guaranteed that I’m going to get a job after but is it really what I wanted? At that time where I was deciding on which college course I’m going to take I was really confused because I thought to myself that I could do it all you know like I could be an engineer, lawyer, teacher etc. It all can be learned but will I be happy about it? And I don’t know what course or profession I’m going to be happy about because I don’t really know my passion at the time or what I’m good at, I’m still figuring it out until now.
I took up a business course specifically in Finance. College was sort of like high school but with much freedom, you can skip classes whenever you want to without being worried of getting caught, you can actually do whatever you want. Yep I’ve done that, skip classes because I just want to skip it lol. My sister actually warned me about it, she told me that college is where you’re put to the test on whether you want to be responsible or not. My first year in college was fine, I just really had to adjust to a lot of new things like new people, new environment and everything. But throughout my college life I actually enjoyed it and it’s all because of the people I spent it with, even though every day I ask myself whether this college course that I took fits me, I always try to push that thought aside because there’s no going back now and might as well finish it and enjoy it— I did and I technically learned something from it and now in a week I’ll be graduating and I still think about it because basically it’s not the kind of profession that I wanted to do for the rest of my life but I also don’t know what I really want to do as well. So yeah, I’m going to stick with this finance thing until I figure that out hopefully the sooner the best and also hopefully I get a job soon. 🤞🏼
