There are so many options and career paths I should and can take, but settling on one is impossible. From nursing to occupational therapist and so much more. I don’t know what’s right for me.

When I was younger my mentality was to not be a nurse because everyone was becoming one, and I wanted to stray away from the norm. But now as I am more knowledgeable, I believe that nursing is a great career. But the inability to find a job quickly in this society is much more harder due to the influx of nursing majors that have been coming in.

I was talking to a family friend, and it was t the first time we have had this discussion. I learned today that my dad has been trying to push him to talk to me about these OPTIONS.

My father wants me to go to the Philippines for school, and even though its not a bad idea, I just have a big case of FOMO. And I don’t want to have that regret of not being at things.

The advantages of going to school around the world would be, NO DEBT. And that is a big one. I would be able to live comfortably without having to worry about student loans. And even though I don’t want that,it’s gonna happen if I go to school here in America.

I really don’t know what to do.

Another option that I was told about was phlebotomy, which involves the insertion of needles into people firearms and getting samples of their blood. Nothing so bad about that, and being able to get $22 per hour, but there are so many other options that I could take.

I AM SO FULL OF ANXIETY OVER THIS TOPIC AND IT ISN’T WHAT I SHOULD BE THINKING ABOUT. I need to calm down, and actually process in my mind what I want to do.

It may not even involve being in the medical industry. What happens if I want to become an interior designer or a realtor…..

I just don’t want to please my family, I want to be able to feel comfortable in my work surroundings.
