What to do?
Thursday, February 03, 2011
So, I am sitting here today wondering about my future. I recently graduated from college in May. I currently have a bachelor's degree in Physical Performance and Sports Studies. As of right now, I work in food service and it's just not working out in my favor. I love the work I do, and I make decent money, but I really want a career change. I want to do something that I went to school for. Here's the problem: I don't know what I want to do. The degree I have makes it hard to find a job. I can't seem to find a job in this field of study. There is so much that I want to do, I just don't know what it is exactly. I'm sure God knows what he wants for me, but I don't feel any sort of calling yet.
I really want to do something in the field of physical therapy or personal training but that would require more schooling and I'm not sure if I want to pay for more schooling. I have considered looking for a job in a nursing home as an activity coordinator or something in that line, but I really want to do something to change the lives of others. Whether that be helping them achieve fitness goals, or helping them start a workout plan. I have been thinking so much about this lately. It has gotten to the point where I can't sleep well at nights because it is all I seem to think about. I don't want a 4 year degree to go to waste. I want to do something I worked hard for but yet, I can't seem to find anything. Do I go back to school and work on getting something that would help my degree? Or do I just keep looking for jobs and wait for something to come up? Or do I possibly do both? It's been the devastating question on my mind for quite some time now!
