I’m 25, engaged, currently in grad school and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. Sounds pathetic right? Lol
My whole life has been a huge question mark. My parents pushed me to be a doctor and lawyer but I always was fascinated with computers! Ended up going to a STEM high school and majored in IT In undergraduate but even with a interest with computers I still don’t know what I want to do and honestly I’m okay with it.
Too many times people make you choose to fit into a bucket but I don’t want to conform. I want my hands in all the buckets. I want to be multi-talented. I like what I like and do what I like.
I started my first job as a systems analyst and now I’m more in a HR role. Still in IT but I saw a need to help the diversity pipeline so I’m doing and living that. But who knows what I may want to do later.
I’m in grad school getting a masters in comp sci…still have no idea what I’m going to do with it but I’m learning so I’m advancing. My boss is pushing me to pick but I feel better going with the flow of things. I’m kicking ass in my current job, why is that not enough?
Why do people feel you have to look ahead? I just want to take it day by day! For those who feel like me, I just want to let you know it’s okay to dream and not have everything figured out. Don’t like society push you into a bucket! Pick your own bucket or multiple buckets or make your own bucket! I’m still figuring out what my bucket will be but for now I’m okay with multiple.
