Because everyone totally had their lives figured out when they were 16, right?

Gah... High school, pushed to college because "it was the only respectable way" saddled with debt and cant work in the field I studied (engineering and GPA) When I started college an engineering degree was a guaranteed job. When I finished I had classmates with signed contracts feel the "exit clause" of 2 years worth of vacation up front and no job.

Trade school might have been a better choice for me in hindsight. I think a machinist trade might have been fun, but I am not in a situation that allows for retraining, and I am not sure what I would want to train in.

I have concluded a few things from my experiences and others stories.

1 Don't rule out any options because they are "not good enough" as long as they will provide a living wage.

2 Don't discourage others from making choices that you feel are "less than their abilities"

Remember you are never too old to go back to school and take a class, or minor, or major.


I still don't have it figured out

One of the many reasons I never went to college. I'm sorry you had to go through all that. :( I hope you're able to get a job in your field someday soon. Thanks for the wise advice!

With only a few exceptions, the first year of College/University in the U.S. is a general year that can apply to any course of study. This gives the undecided some breathing room before they have to choose.

It still stinks that many kids are pressured to figure out what they want to do with their lives, when many adults grow and change over time.

It's okay to not know what you want to do. Get a degree in whatever, or learn a skill -- either one can get you places you didn't expect you'd go, and you can find contentment in that profession.

Exactly. And it's also okay to change your mind. If something doesn't work out, or it's not fun anymore, you can always try something different.
