Looking Forward

Thank you all for you comments on my last post.  I think it is in my best interest to take a little rest until I start training for my marathon!!

I have been thinking a lot lately about my future, both short term and long term. 

In the short term, I have a great weekend planned! Tomorrow, I am getting up, working out, and heading to see Breaking Dawn by my lonesome haha. I know, I am THAT cool.

Hopefully by the time I get home from the movie, the BF will be just about here for the night.  I have no clue what is in the plans for the evening, but hopefully something great!

Saturday is the first official high school swim practice! I am kind of excited to get to know all of the athletes! I remember how much I loved high school swimming and hope to make them enjoy it just as much! Smile


Directly after practice, it is time to head to my sister’s house to spend time with my family! The weekend includes our 5k through the lights, potentially seeing Happy Feet 2, and an early Thanksgiving celebration! Not only will my family be there, but my grandma, cousins, friends, BF, and my puppy will be there! YAY!

Then there’s the long term.  All along I have thought that being an elementary teacher was the thing for me.  Now that I have been in a few special education courses, I have realized that there are so many options for me with a special ed degree! I could be a disabilities coordinator for a university.  I kind of would love to go someplace where I have never been and settle down.  I am pretty independent and not really a huge homebody (though I do love my family!)

When I was bored at work today, I looked at www.usajobs.gov.  There are AWESOME jobs.  I could be a early childhood special education teacher in KOREA.  C’mon!!! That would be awesome! Or an education program specialist in Massachusetts!  I really don’t think I would mind moving.  Right now, the thought sounds intriguing.  Seriously though, check out that website.  There is a world of jobs I never knew existed!

I wish I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.  I often find myself second guessing my decisions for the future. 

I can’t tell you how many times I wish there was a book that told me how to live my life.  There are so many decisions I wish were answered for me!

Do you ever feel the same way? Do you ever feel as though you have know idea what you’re doing in life?

Do you have anything you’re looking forward to this weekend?

  1. Yep. I feel the exact same way. But, add in the swimming upstream aspect and I’m right there with you. Swimming upstream toward… what? I don’t even know. And all I hear is when are you transferring, what are you doing with your life, etc. I HAVE NO IDEA. D:

    Looking forward to spending the last bits of time with my BF before I leave for A WEEK on a cruise. GAH!

  2. Oh lady I am going through that very thing right now. I always felt as if I absolutely knew what I wanted to do… but everyday I have so many thoughts that run through my head wondering if I’d be better at something else or should be doing something else…. it’s absolutely annoying sometimes!

  3. I wish I knew what I want to do too…I am beyond lost!

    Girl, we are one in the same. At least you know what major you like– I picked political science, made it to my last year, then decided that it wasn’t what I wanted at ALL. I came to the conclusion that there was no use changing it so late in the game (I only have 2 semesters left) so now I’m just putting it in God’s hands!

    Best of luck to you girlie! Know that you aren’t alone 🙂

  5. Right now! That is exactly how I feel. I’m just going around in circles not really knowing what to do with my life lolz. I loved high school swimming so much. It was seriously the best of times. 🙂

  6. I think EVERYONE feels like this… or at least most people! And especially those of us in our 20s! I always think “what am I doing with my life?!” Some days I feel perfectly content, & then others, it’s the total opposite.

  7. I can relate to this sooo much Nikki… more than I care to admit! I have ideas of what I want to do, and know what I am interested in. But that still doesn’t mean I know exactly how to go about doing it. Ugh soo annoying sometimes

  8. Korea would be so awesome! You’ll be an amazing teacher!! 😀

    It’s not easy to decide what you want to do for the rest of your life. I always wanted to be a writer, and went to school for journalism. But by the time I graduated college, newspapers were beginning to collapse & no one was hiring journalists; they were laying them off. I think my dream job would be working for a publishing company…how cool would it to find an amazing novel by an unknown author!

  10. what did you think of breaking dawn?!?!
