What do you plan on doing with your life?

I actually was asked this question twice this week by people who just found out what they wanted to do late in their lives. Do you know how frustrating it is to hear this question? I mean I hear it too often, and I'm like why should I have to know automatically in stone what I want to do with my life when I'm not even 30? There are people who feel that you have to be at a certain point in your life where you have to know right here, right now what you aspire to do with your life. Why? That's the beauty of must adapt and know that life changes just like that. So why should what you plan on doing with your life have to be so concrete? I never understood that, and I guess I never will. I know that I want to be involved in marketing/event planning at some point in my life, but just not now because I am still trying to figure out who is Jasmine and what is her purpose?

I don't know am I the only one who feels this way?

You are not alone honey! I just realized what I really wanted to do with my life a few months ago. And it is in no way associated with thousands of dollars and sleepless nights I spent at MSU! It's like I had an epiphany when I woke up one morning and I've been chasing it every since!

GUUUUUUUURRRRRL who are you telling?! I know that MSU got a lot of my money, but hey it was a beneficial experience because I met cool folks including yourself. Do I wish I had a minor in Marketing to go along with that History degree? Heck yes! lol Chawell I know people in their 50s that are really now knowing what they want to do with their lives, and they went through grad school and everything. Some of my former classmates are in grad school because they wanted to look good on paper, and start their own businesses. your savings on! :-)
