Its driving me nuts inside. Surely this can't be it -- Monday to Friday, go to class, do a test, write an exam, get great marks, and continue the process. But even outside of school, I just don't feel anything. Its more like a robot on autodrive going from one place to another. I think the only time I feel something is when I'm doing photography, something artistic and something that changes the world by capturing those small moments.
Frankly put, I want to change the world for the better (like Steve Jobs did with the Personal Computer), but I don't know how exactly that's going to happen, which is the reason why I don't feel anything.
I never even realized that I didn't feel anything because I don't know the "how" behind it until I wrote it down right here right now.
My best advice -
Get out there and start doing other stuff. Break the proverbial mold of your every day routine and volunteer or work or play or do whatever you feel might be interesting.
I used to want to play poker professionally, but once I realized it wasn't much help to other people I decided it was silly. I still have fun playing poker on occasion, but I find my business ventures are much more helpful to others.
Just do what you can and what you enjoy! Also try intention-manifestation
