  1. Hey everyone! How's everyone doing? When I was in high school, I thought my 20s would be me having the time of my life, graduated college at 21, and working on my career. Fast forward to now, and I've been in a 2 year college for 3 years now (due to me changing my major constantly and not getting anywhere). I'm at this point where I don't know what I want to major in. Some background information on things that happened is that 7 months ago I moved out of my mom's place, to move in with my boyfriend at the time. Which then 7 months later, last month, I realized the relationship is abusive and I had to leave so now I'm back home. Everything in life has a consequence, my consequence is that now I owe tuition money to my school, so now I can't take classes this semester. That is honestly not the point of this, in a way. Maybe... But I'm at this point in my life where I'm 22 years old and I just don't know what I'm doing. The frustrating part is that, you always here different things on the situation. "Don't go to college if you don't know what it is that you want to do" which I agree on because in the end I was just wasting money with no real end game. End game was to graduate for the sake of having a degree, however in terms of career, no. Which during the time I changed my major back to liberal arts so I could just get out of 2 year college. But I'm still there. Then you hear "just go to college! It would help you decide what you wanna do!" No, it hasn't helped me decide. The frustrating part of that is some people think the life is cookie cutter, and when I say something isn't helping me, I think I know what's helping and what isn't. College hasn't helped me discover anything besides more things I enjoy and more confusion. I'm 22 years old, I'm lost, I'm confused and most of all I'm scared. People in general like to say this is something you have to do on your own, you figure this out on your own, and I really beg to differ that. There's this one book I would never forget and it's called A Sense Of Direction and this author was trying to find some direction so he goes on a pilgrimage, along the way, he met people of all sorts that helped him in a way, in whatever it is that he's looking for, in whatever area of life. If it's something that the person said that gave him that epiphany or anything. They helped him in a way. Right now I spend my time working like 3 days a week, I asked for more hours just so I could get a little more cash than I have now. I wished I didn't smoke pot then cause now I fear drug test. I just dont know what I'm doing. I don't know where I'm going, if I did knew, it wouldn't make starting a pain or whatever. But I just don't know what I'm doing with my life right now besides just work. I don't know if I should apply to a non traditional school like cosmetology school and just take out loans or whatever. Even if I did go to school I don't know how I'll find time to work, working retail for a year is my only experience that I have. I've been job hunting for 7 months and more with no gist. I pissed myself today when I read about quarter life crisis so. Side note - no I can not take out loans for a past semester - my mom isn't helping with college and I can understand why (her not helping isn't the point, so please don't ask why) The point is that...I dunno. I think I'm experiencing a quarter life crisis.

      Start by joining yourself. If people see that someone's online, they might just login themselves.

  3. I've never been so fucking mad at a friend before in my damn life. Oh my god.

  4. Since I changed my major to liberal arts I've felt more relaxed than ever, now I just need to find a good paying job and grind.

      Don't worry about it. I thought being a Liberal Arts major would be the end of the world. It isn't. If you are a hard worker and don't goof off on the job, you will run the show soon enough and be making a great amount of money. And you probably won't be hating what you do. Don't major in anything for the cash if you don't enjoy it. I did what I love and now I'm doing really well for myself.

      My problem is, I love a lot of things. I don't have just one thing that I love. My ultimate goal in life is to help people, animals and the environment and just make the world a better place. Which I have no idea of how to go about doing that. :/

      1. Join a charity.

      2. Volunteer at animal shelter.

      3. Environmental studies at University or study Geology or Biology, then join a company as environmental consultant and help them not mess up the environment.

      Just my 2 cents, I was in the same boat as you, so don't lose hope! Just do you best and seize every opportunity that comes your way! :)

  5. We have a code red on Ex-C forums, I repeat...a code red. Operation E.T.T

      No I sincerely doubt that. Ask is rarely deliberately rude, and never acts like a total asshole. His desperation seems geunine enough to me. This guy was simply a dickhead, through and through.

      Darn. I haven't run into this ETT/immoralchristian much. Feel like I'm missing out.

      I think ETT is an abbreviation for "Exposing the Troll" though. This guy messed around in the Lion's Den, I think his posts may be left in some threads.
