As I prepare to graduate with an MIS degree from a top rated state university, I can’t help but think of the possibilities after graduation.
Like most graduates (at least in my group of friends), I dream of grad school. I personally want to go to law school and became a top notch lawyer. I know this might not be a way to become a billionaire but there is something about helping others that satisfies me. My natural tendency to argue and prove a point simply draw me more towards this career.
Never the less, I do realize that I am graduating with a degree that can potentially land me a job in a field that is growing and highly lucrative. BUT, yes there is a but, is that the way I want to go? I have no idea.
Yes, i have no idea about many things in the future. I have no idea what i;m going to be doing in a few months. I have no idea, I have no idea.
I find it hard to consider “having no idea” as a problem. Rather it is a period for me to think about myself, my aspirations, my goals, my vision and my mission. If only it was that easy. if only I could zoom into a world of no worries and standards. A world where no one would ask me about my plans. If only I could take time off. Yes maybe time off is the answer. Does the sprinter take time off in the middle of a race to reexamine his speed? No. But why do I liken this situation to a sprinter and a race? Life is not a race.
Life may not be a race but society places us all on pedestal. Watching and waiting for us to take a wrong turn. Then the next minute you’ll be a scape goat, a laughing stock and an example of what to do. Experience is the best teacher much!!!
Lately I have had 3 doors shut in my face. Actually it may be more. But who’s counting. I still remain hopeful whatever the future holds. I am ready to ride, whichever door opens, like a bull.
Never the less, I ready to take a turn.
Being at this crossroad is the hardest thing I have ever had to face.
