To be honest, I’ve never been all that sure of what my future will be.
Sure, there’s tons of stuff I want to do. But most of it is small stuff, like screaming in a public restroom and stealing the McDonalds arch. Nothing like, ya know, career choices or anything.
I used to want to pursue a career in graphic design, but I’m not sure at this point. I haven’t had a lot of confidence in my art lately, so any art careers suddenly look like something I can’t succeed in. And I like writing, but an author is 1) a difficult career to live off of and 2) I don’t have confidence in writing either.
So self-confidence issues a recurring theme here, obviously.
Future is a tricky thing, and I’m just trying to take things as they come. I’m not going to try to impress adults by telling them I want to be a neurosurgeon or anything, because I don’t and I’m too squeamish for a health career anyway. I’m 12, so I’m not making any big decisions on career yet, even while everyone else is.
And anything else about my future besides career is difficult to think about too. I guess I want a family of my own, but that’s really all I can think of.
I do know I want to go to college for four years. I’m going to try my best to get a good job so that I won’t have trouble with money later in life, and I want to be able to pursue a career I’m interested in.
And that’s all I know for now. It is the present after all, not the future.
That’s all folks! Bye!
