Making big commitments at such a young age is a tough thing to do. There are so many things to worry about like if it’s the right decision or how your choice will impact the rest of your life. Within my life, I always try to calculate my decisions on how they affect me now and later, and because of that, I think that I’m putting myself in a better position later on down the road.
From the time we’re in kindergarten to our 10th-grade year in high school our teachers and parents tell us “you have plenty of time to grow up, you don’t need to worry about what you want to be, or what you want to do in life.”
Now it’s time to start thinking about what I want to base my life on and I couldn’t be more anxious than ever. I know exactly what I want to do with my life, it’s the commitment to it that occasionally puts me in a small panic.
My panic arises due to the feeling of “once you get into this profession, it’d be hard to get into a new one and turn your life in another direction of you say you don’t like it.” I’m a person who changes her mind all the time, so the thought of my life and my career being set in stone is scarier than ever as senior year and graduation approaches.
