How did you figure out what you want to do in life ? And what did you choose to do ?

Try things. Not everyone knows in high school, I didn't. I even got my degree in Business Administration but probably won't end up using it, as I've moved into the medical field.

The important thing is to never let your age deter you from doing what you want to do. A lot of people will tell you "you want to start school again when you're 30!?" or "you won't be done going to school for that until your late 30's" and things like that, but that's just ignorant. You only live once, so try your hardest to accomplish what you want to accomplish and don't let anyone keep you from trying. I would rather try and fail, than never try at all and have to wonder "what if?" twenty years from now.

I was talking to a guy yesterday that's probably in his late 50's at a Super Bowl party that said "when I was 48, I was really thinking about going to law school, it was only going to take 3 years of courses at night, and now I'm really kicking myself in the ass that I didn't do it." It has to be tough to come to that realization and know that you are never going to give it another shot.

I read a forum the other day dedicated to people who go to medical school later in life, and one of the guys said "I'm going to be 40 no matter what, so do I want to be a doctor at 40, or do I want to be something else?"

If you try different things, you'll start to realize what you really enjoy. I found that I really enjoy helping people, so I moved into the medical field, and plan to go as far as I can in it. You'll find something eventually that brings you that same kind of satisfaction.

Go to a community college and get your undergrad classes done and do well in them, get all A's if you can, and you'll be able to go just about anywhere once you decide what you'd like to do.

There's a few key ingredients to living your dream

1. Hard work and sacrifice. While other kids are out getting jobs that make 50k a year, if you have a dream job that is not a "conventional job" be prepared to be broke as fuck for while. Keep working though, try and devote all your energy into making the dream come true.

2. People. Surround yourself with not only positive people, but people who are interested in doing the same thing as you. The world is ALL about connections. You could be the least skilled person in the world, but if you know everyone you'll be alright

...thats pretty much it. or all i can think of, just woke up

My advice is to do what you love, what you can see yourself doing the rest of your life.

I work for a record label, i dont even see it as a job. its really more a lifestyle. Work and Party. thats all we doooo

Pretty much this. You have to find the right balance of finding out what you love doing, and being able to make enough financially to support yourself at the level for which you deem acceptable and successful.

i take education srsly.

i know what it's like to fuck around in school, get average grades, then i got older and decided to grow up and start taking things seriously, and realized how hard it is to get into graduate programs or post-bacc programs with a shitty GPA.

if you take school seriously, and do well, you'll never have to deal with the problems i'm dealing with right now.

Best thing to do is get your education. That way you have a strong back up plan to whatever it is you REALLY dream of doing/being.

I personally majored in biochemistry but always loved art, fashion, etc. but due to pressure from parents, teachers, etc I didn't major in fashion, textiles, but i'm still chasing my dreams and started my own clothing line for a positive and purposeful cause. So I extract DNA by day, and design for my clothing line at night type thing.

This is America so anything is possible, just never give up and your dreams will always be within reach

Good Luck

Honestly, I think having a job you love is overrated. The things I love in life are hobbies and they cost money. As long as I don't HATE my job, I see nothing wrong with a well-paying 9-5 as long as I have weekends to do what I love.

Well I don't really know what to tell you. The op hasn't started yet, so it's a bit easier to give him some advice. Something must have drawn you to marketing initially, but hopefully it wasn't potential income, because that will rarely turn out to be a job you care about doing. I know several people that went to college for marketing under the assumption that they'd get a job at a major advertising company and start making big bucks right out of college, and that didn't pan out for any of them.

This is what I'm trying to do. As for me, I'm majoring in Buisness Management and minoring in Commercial Music. And to be straight up, I saw the movie Brown Sugar and it just set off a light bulb in my head.

You major in Business Marketing? Damn I wanted to switch my major to that is it boring? What are some of the classes you took?


Dude, all business classes are fucking boring as shit to me. Maybe they wont be for you, but I am seriously more intested in the artistic side of life, (Fashion, Culinary arts, etc). I pretty much decided I was going to force myself to take a practical approach to school by taking business. Stupid idea.
