OK guys, my gf has been on my ass ever since we started dating about what I want to do as a career. She is a very motivated person and wants to go into journalism. No one in my family has ever gone to college, and I am the first to be in college and to graduate and receive a high school diploma.
I graduated from high school in 2006. A rep from Full Sail University came to visit us in my TV Production class to show us about their school. From there on, I wanted to go there. I loved creating videos. I took TV Production 1, 2, 3 & 4 and received my class year's TV Production award (they only give out one).
Then I procrastinated and said I'll apply. That I'll find money to go. I knew it was expensive, but hopefully find a great job to pay it all back. 2 years (yes, thats TWO) go by and I am still working at Best Buy. Then I met my gf. We started dating and she pushed me to go to school. I simply applied at a local community/university a mile down the road. It was a joke. I went there for a year and it felt like I was in 9th grade again. I passed every class.
First year goes by, and she gets on my ass, again. Going to the little school is not good enough. So I try to get a loan to go to Full Sail. It doesn't go through and need a co-signer. Both of my rents are in a bad situation for that. So Full Sail was out. It's only a month before fall semester starts and I decided to go to UCF. But unfortunately I missed the deadline way back in the spring. So, I applied to Valencia Community College in Orlando. I continued my transfer program for a bachelor's in Business Administration because that was all that was available at my last school. Eventually I will transfer to UCF.
But, I honestly do not know what I want to do with my life. At first, I just wanted to get my business degree. But, do what with it? Then I wanted to do something federal, like a business investigator. That lasted a week and my gf did research on it and showed me how much they make and what's required and that it's too easy for me and would not enjoy doing it.
I am really good with electronics, cars, construction, math, english... you name it. I just do not know what I want to do. So many people ask me why am I not at a technical school because that's all I ever talk about, nerdy stuff. But I am not sure.
Any of you guys (well I'm sure there are some) ever been in my situation? And what did you do? I am completely open to options, as I am almost 22 years old without a goal. Please help out this kid
Thanks to anyone that took time to read this.
