I'm a 19 year old girl going to university next year for nursing. I don't even know if that is what I want anymore. I don't know what I want to do with my life and something in the back of my head is saying it's not nursing. ( i feel like I just applied to it because there is a lot of jobs for it ). Plus I worked my butt off to get it. I needed high marks in college to get it ( I took general and had a 90% average ).
I lost friends this year. My boyfriend cheated on me and when my group of friends had to choose between him or me they chose him. I only have two friends right now and they are both busy most of the time. I have a job too but I hate it. I need money for school. I don't have a lot of money. I use to be really into sports in high school but I can't do them anymore. I got injured pretty badly ( my shoulder, just had surgery a year ago ). A lot of jobs I can't do (but want to do) because I don' t have perfect vision and it can't be fixed. ( firefighter, police etc.)
Everyday I feel like I'm wasting my life. Just waiting to start school ( something I don't want to do ). I wish I could just travel. See the world and try new things. go skydiving, climb a mountain. just do crazy things all the time. I don't mind writing. I just don't think I am that great at it. I want a career allows me to be creative. I love trying new things and meeting new people. Just I don't feel like I was meant for health care.
Any advice or ideas? What careers may I like? I just want to be happy. I think I need a bit of guidance.

You have worked hard to get where you are... that's a lot of stress. Maybe you do need to just go and see the world and experience new places, people and things. You are still young and put your nose to the grind stone later. What is a year? It could be the best year of your life or it could be the year you learn that you need a goal and structure. Who knows. But my gut tells me you are not ready for the next stage. You need a break. one bit of advice. Choose a job eventually you are passionate about. Screw money It only buys stuff. You will be working a long time it better be something you enjoy.0
