As a senior in college, I can truthfully say I do not know what my next step in life will be. If you're also a senior, you may be in the same boat as me. You may be contemplating graduate school, trying to find a job that you will love, or just attempting to trudge past the senioritis you may be dealing with. Trust me, I know the feeling all too well. No matter what you're going through, you may hit the point when you just have no idea what to do. If you do reach that spot, I have some key methods that may help you cope.
At this point, I am going to attempt to find employment upon graduation. It is one of the things weighing on me every day that is simply of the unknown. One of the things I have been trying because of this is to stay positive. I have made it thus far in life, so I know I am doing something right.
All of my years of education will prepare me for a job that I will hopefully enjoy and succeed in. It is up to me to use my resources and knowledge to obtain that. Sometimes when I am stressing out, I really just have to take a breath and know that things will work out the way they are supposed to.
Another key method to deal with the unknown is to stay motivated. Even though college is coming to an end, I realize I cannot stop doing everything that I had to in order to get to this point. Sometimes it is hard to want to go to class or to do an assignment, but it is only going to negatively affect me if I do not do those things. There is no sense in throwing things off now when I have come so far to graduate college and earn a degree.
The last thing I consider to help me in this time of confusion is to stay true to myself. In the end, my decisions are going to have the greatest impact on myself. No matter what my friends are deciding to do or where someone else is ending up, it is my responsibility to make the best choices for myself. I have to live with the repercussions, so it is vital that I choose wisely.
In the end, I know that my life is going to work out the way it is supposed to and I have to trust in that. I won't say it is the easiest thing to do, but it is the most important to remember.
