As soon as we get into our senior year of high school we are expected to know what college we want to go to and what major we want to apply into. The pressure of trying to figure out the rest of your life starts so early. But most of the time, the major you thought you wanted to do isn't what you planned. Students will end up changing their major after only a year.
Sometimes, you can enter junior year and still have no idea what you want to do. Sure, you'll probably know what you like to do and what you are good at, but deciding on a career path is a lot of pressure. Chances are, you might end up hating the career path you thought was a good idea.
This article is not meant to discourage you, but rather to let you know that it is okay. It is okay to not know what to do, even when you are graduating college. I think that only trial and error and life experiences will be able to tell you what you truly want in life.
So if you are frustrated and feeling lost , just know that you are not alone. That most of the other college students are in the exact same boat. I was terrified when I transferred into an entirely new college my junior year. I was terrified that I still did not know what I wanted to do. I would not find out in time before I graduated. But I realized something. It was okay. I would figure it out eventually, and just because I was not on the same path that we are told is “normal” does not mean I would not succeed in life.
