My latest "OMFG what am I going to do with my life" freak out brought on by my quickly approaching undergrad completion is Vet school. Unlike the other ones though, this is something I have been going back and forth on all through college. I'd need some clinical experience before I could apply (I have volunteer experience previously though), and two or three addition prereqs.

But damn, I wish wasn't freaking out so much about this. I'm 21! I don't need to decide yet... Right?

Nope. In fact, I'd venture that it's probably BETTER that you're not decided now.

What JoPa said. For me personally, pretttty sure I hadn't decided on very much or made very sound decisions at all before the age of 25.

Definitely take your time! I thought I knew what I wanted when I was 21, and now (at the ripe old age of 26) I know I should have waited before deciding on my field and pigeon holing myself already.

I still don't know what I really want to do, and I'm about to turn 32! No big deal.

It just took me over 4 hours to clean my apartment. I didn't take any PPK or FB breaks, either. That is exactly how cluttered and gross it had gotten. I'm glad it's clean now. Well...'clean'. Now that I got the major layer of gross off, I'm seeing little things (like my baseboards!) that need cleaning. Too exhausted now, though. Also, apparently bed bugs are going around really bad in my town, so they sent an exterminator dude over to check all of our beds and couches. He didn't find anything (in my apartment or anyone else's), but it sent me into a major panic which resulted in said scrubbing of apartment and a scorching hot wash of my sheets. That shiitake freaks me out!

I knew what I wanted to do at 21 and I intentionally didn't do it until later, so that I could have some other experiences before getting serious about the career I wanted to do for a few decades. It was the best decision ever.

On the flip side, Simply_Love, I've known what I've truly wanted to do since I was four, and I'm 22. I've gone through bouts of other ideas, but I've always, always come back to wanting to teach literature (well, I said I wanted to read books like a teacher at four, but you know). I did spend three years after HS flitting about making bad decisions and only in the last year have really gotten my shiitake together to accomplish my goal.
But...
Right now, I'm poised to get a huge (massive, scary big deal) promotion at work, which could potentially push back my grad school plans, but also give me invaluable experience in something I love just as much (music education and management) and the ability to save a fuckton of money before spending a fuckton of money.

What I'm trying to say is, taking time, even if you DID know what you wanted, is a legitimate way of going about it. And ESPECIALLY if you don't know, taking that time is imperative. At eighteen, I was so burnt out and over being in school that if I hadn't taken those three years off, I would never have made it through.

Thanks everyone!

I had wanted to be a vet for as long as I could remember until about 16, when I totally fell in love with Biology, and in college Ecology. Vet school was still on the back burner the last few years though, and I've taken some classes I didn't really need for my degree to keep the option open (like 8 quarters of college chem.... I could have satisfied my degree requirement with 3, FML).

Up until June I had been planning on applying to an Ecology grad program, but decided to wait till next year because my summer was going to be way too busy to study for the GRE between work and summer classes. That's when all this "Do I really want to do research for the rest of my life?!" freak out began, and has just gotten worse.

I'm on a waiting list for a local cat shelter to volunteer and am applying for an internship at an animal sanctuary (this has been planned for a while), so I'm definitely waiting a while before I make any decisions about anything. So not taking Biochem (one of the prereqs I'd need to finish) unless i need to :P

I feel kind of bad now. The church we are using for GED has wireless with a password. I already figured out the password my first day there (it was the very first thing you would try for a church password) and have been sneakily using it. today the guy (minister? Deacon?) saw me sitting outside waiting for my student and we started talking. Anyway, he ended up offering to get their it guy to give us internet access.

(Their IT guy should be ashamed at having such an obvious, bad password!)

Oh god you guys. I just took what I believed to be a carton of apple juice out of the fridge and chugged it first thing in the morning. You know what else comes in the same label-less cartons we buy from the farmers' market? Apple cider vinegar. The burn! The taste! God that was a nasty way to start my morning.

Props to you for not barfing, because I definitely would have.

You probably just presented all diseases from that chug... according to those that love ACV ;)

I really needed that 2 hour nap this afternoon. Two nights of poor sleep is no good for me at all.

But because of that it is nearly 2.30 pm and I haven't the shopping done and not a bit of college work done and I still have to walk the dog, have lunch, make dinner and shower.

I just got my grade for my BA thesis and it's really not a good grade. I'm also super hormonal and overdid it at the gym, I'm crying so much my head hurts really badly and just feel super dumb.

Thank you. On the positive side, it means it shouldnt be too long until I finally get my BA. There's still some grades missing (not sure why, because I was sure I took care of it a month ago) but other than that. Time to move on and get my head into place for grad school.

Right? Actually, I'm pretty sure chugging it would make you able to fly or something.
