Hey everyone, I've been browsing this site for a while now and the forums just recently and I'm finding a lot of interesting topics and discussions. I figured I would post a topic myself and see what general advice people have on here.
So basically I am 22 years old and just graduated from university in the summer from a 4 year BA program (poli-sci) and now I just feel like I'm stuck 'in limbo' or just lost. I considered returning to school for my MA in either history or poli sci but I know inside that taking this path would just be a method of buying another year to figure out what I truly want to do. I have also considered law school as well. I am interested in academia but nothing I have studied really ignites that passion inside that this site discusses so often. So at the moment I am stuck in a transition phase. Finished school (for now?) not knowing whether to return, not knowing to look for a serious job or just to get something menial in the meantime, playing around with some ideas. I think because there are so many options and I'm not sure about any of them that it has resulted in a general lack of motivation where I awake each morning not really knowing what to do on a micro or macro level.
I've worked full time in the past and not enjoyed it. Not because I despised what I was doing but rather because the idea of repetitive, controlled, and uncreative work really gets to me to the point where I feel like a drone. I'm of the belief that people should be able to exercise their creative faculties on a daily basis, that we're not meant to be robotic. Given this, and the fact that I have a true passion for cars I thought about doing something creative in this regard such as writing or starting a blog(esque) website. However, to only rely on a project like this would be almost stupid and I think (maybe) I should just find a job for now and make that a side project.
Also, there is increasing pressure from the parents to do SOMETHING but I just can't seem to decide what that is. I think perhaps I spend way too much time thinking and not enough time doing...
Any feedback would be appreciated.
