  1. Don’t imagine about what you THINK you’ll be in the future. BELIEVE in what you want to be in the future. But then again, it’s easy for the outsiders to say it. Calm down, breathe and do life the way you want to. Happy Birthday in advance 🙂

  2. I am on the same boat as you! Everyone wants me to know what I want to be. I’m only 14 and I was pretty much forced by everything and everyone to quickly choose because our GCSEs are apparently what leads you to your job. I actually find this so ridiculous. However, I can imagine having a family when I’m older and all that but you need to stabilise yourself with a job so you have money to provide for yourself first. I just don’t know what I want to do because nothing interests me. The society is weird because they expect you to know. But I haven’t even found out what I’m truly meant to do because school has taken over most of my life. It really does frustrate me.

    I just hope you find a way xx

  3. Aw, that made me feel sad reading that. It really reminded me of myself when I was going through so much confusion and pain as well. Can I give you an air-hug? 😉

    Anyway, I completely understand what you expressed in that post. I have had similar thoughts before. With time, I’ve realized that expectations are the cause of all the worry and stress. You don’t need to know EXACTLY what you want to do in college. I know I don’t! I don’t know why the world expects high school kids to know what they want to achieve in life. You want to know a secret? Sometimes, even adults don’t know. Yeah, they’re just figuring it out like we are. They might just pick something and stick with it out of circumstance. When in reality, they haven’t figured out want they really want to do. When I realized this, all my worries vanished. I realized that they don’t always stick with one job. If they don’t like it, they quit and try something else. Isn’t that great? No one is chained down to doing one job, even though it seems that way. It’s so strange. I think all the stress comes from thinking that it’s game over once you accidentally pick a job you hate.

    And I understand. Change is hard. Change is scary. Change is all of these things because it puts you out of your comfort zone. Unfortunately, change is how humans thrive. Think about it. When you started blogging…that was a change right? Initially, you were scared. But then you did it and made you a better person. Likewise, college will be a huge change. But it will equip you with more experiences that will make you better person. Sometimes, the change will not go as you had planned. But that’s okay because it will teach you something instead. My point is any change is good. For example, you could plan a trip to another country. It may turn out well. Or something bad could happen, like losing your money. If something bad happens, initially you’ll struggle, but you’ll become a stronger and better person.

    And I know the feeling of the ideal job versus the actual reality of it. I’ve had such thoughts before. “Writing sounds like fun. But would I enjoy the lifestyle of a writer?” The best way to know if such and such job is good for you is to try it. If it doesn’t work quit.

    Right, I’ve rambled a lot. Here’s a summary of what I said and want you to understand:
    1. Change is good no matter what. Sometimes, the change will give you pleasure. Other times, it will give you pain. Either way, you will learn something and become a better person.

    2. You don’t have to have your whole life figured out. No one does. Some adults even change their job 3,4, 5, even six times.

    3. If you can change your job, then that means it’s not a death sentence if you don’t like it. Hooray!

    4. Try new things instead of wondering whether such-and-such is good. If it sounds interesting, go for it. If it doesn’t work out, quit. Repeat this process until you find what you like.

    5. Don’t worry so much about the future. Live one day at a time. How can you think about marriage if you haven’t even gone to college? Hahaha, it’s okay I’ve done this too. 😛
    Just take it one day at a time. Your life will become so much easier.

    6. Most of your worries don’t come true. Just take it as it comes.

    7. Adulthood seems pretty lousy, but hey, that means you can enjoy the present moment of being a teenager.

    8. The sentence, “I will never become a successful blogger and traveler.” That is a lie. There is no evidence that proves that. And, how will you know if you haven’t tried? 😉
    Oh wait, but you already have a blog with followers and posts filled with comments. So yes, that sentence must be true. Ahahahaha! 😛 So, again, you’re just discounting the positive.

    Here are some quotes as food for thought that help me when I revert back to negative thinking:
    “Your life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

    “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but takes you nowhere.”

    ““You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go..” Dr. Suess.

    And so on. I think you get the idea of where I’m going with this. I hope that helped.
    Good luck for your future. I wish you all the best. 😉

      1. Thank you so much for your short comment. 😛
        Just kidding! I must have left you speechless. Although, I would like to know what your thoughts are as well, haha.

  4. 17 isn’t that old, so try not to worry! I’m leaving school at the end of this year, and so many of us have no idea what we’re doing. One of my friends is going to be a ski instructor in Canada, one is volunteering in Malawi for six months, some of us are going to uni and some of us are going straight into jobs. My point is, there are a million different options, and none of them are permanent. Try something, then change it, then change it again, until you work out what makes you happy

  5. I think I can’t picture myself in the future either, I think about it pretty much all the time but still can’t imagine myself as an adult and all that. I feel a lot like you about this! I also like writing very much, it’s something that calms me down a lot when I’m sad or stressed!
    Also I liked a lot the idea of taking a picture of a paper and posting it, I like it! You’re pretty original!!
    Great post!! XD XD

  7. Hey it’s okay not to know what your future will be like. Growing up is shit, you’re right and when people expect us to be able to make decisions aboit our futures with a click of our fingures it is really tough. The thing is, it doesn’t matter if you can’t picture what you will be doing in the future – that’s all part of the great adventure of life. We can’t see what’s around the next corner – we just have to go with the flow and know that life will take us wherever it wants to take us. You don’t need to have a set plan of what you want to do but it’s great that you will always have writing – you never know you might decide to pursue a career in writing. Don’t feel pressured to do certain things like going to college – do what you want to do because at the end of the day it is your life. 🙂
