I wish that ol magic 8 ball really worked.
How simple life would be if the questions that keep us up at night could be answered with one simple shake of a ball.
For example, I'm spending thousands of dollars going to school, dedicating at least 4.5 years of my life, and I have no idea if marketing is what I will want to do with my life. And after all that work and money! If that magic 8 ball could just tell me-I'd feel a little better about what I was doing with my life.
I'm 19. My frontal cortex is still developing. I'm not the same person I will be in 2 years, let alone almost 5.
Then again many people say that it doesn't really matter what your degree is in-as long as you have one. But, what if I want to do something totally different and I lack the knowledge?
And what about the other probing questions that attack my mind at night?
You know, the ones about my own life. The questions that, if I ask my friends the answer to, they always replay, "it's up to you."
Yeah, what about those questions?
I guess that this life is what those questions are all about. Those decisions are the ones that make us or (b--r--e--a--k) us. They give us life experience and allow us to make mistakes and become who we are.
But sometimes....I just want an answer. I just want to know what will bring me the most happiness...what will benefit me in the future...which decision will make me the better person.
I guess I need to look into being a wiccan...eh?
