I've been doing quite a bit of heavy thinking in terms of what I should do with my future. I'm at a point in my life where I'm feeling left behind, not where I should be, and perhaps going down the wrong path.
I'm a current student at Georgia State University majoring in film. My true career goal is to work in the field of either radio or t.v. but this college doesn't have a media major so film is the closest thing, that and I've always loved movies. I knew going in, that my particular career choice was a highly competitive job market with not a whole lot of opportunity, so I have been trying very hard to think of what i could fall back on. With a film degree there really isn't a place for me to work, and I don't want to just give up and resign myself to working at my current job at Publix. So I began to really have some serious doubt well up in me this entire month as I had no clear answer to what I would do if I was unable to find employment in my chosen and desired path.
So I came up with something that did spark my interest. Teaching. I've always been good with this area and have had several people tell me that I would make a very good one. At the time I just wrote it off as I knew exactly what I had wanted to do then, just without a backup plan. I intend to find out some information from advisors on what I should do. I think I may end up trying to do a double major, but that will keep me in school much longer that I had wanted so that brings up another problem. The general feeling that i have of me overstaying my time in college would still be there if i go this route. But I need to know these things, and I need to know what i can do to make sure I can find a job that I can live off of, because as it stands right now, if i didn't have financial aid going I couldn't support myself.
I'm turning 25 this year. I'm well aware that NG is dominated by the younger crowd. I hope I'm not too old to be a part of this crowd and that some of you find relevence in my little rant. I just hope and pray that I can find my way. Thanks for listening.
