The reality of life is that you will have to be many things. It doesn't matter what you choose as long as you learn some key skills that are flexible to be used when change comes. Key skills like knowing how to behave in a work environment, learning good work coping strategies including organisation, learning how to deal with stress, knowing how to communicate effectively, knowing how to learn effectively including good cognitive thinking, literacy and numeracy.

would like to know whats the evolutionary advantage of giving that fish spiky moustaches.



They may have up to four pairs of barbels: nasal, maxillary (on each side of mouth), and two pairs of chin barbels, even though pairs of barbels may be absent depending on the species. Many larger ones also have chemoreceptors across their entire bodies, which means they "taste" anything they touch and "smell" any chemicals in the water. Because their barbels and chemoreception are more important in detecting food, the eyes are generally small.


thank you sweetperplexity.

an important thing to remember is that everyone is different and it's not always good to take career advice from someone else (if you were going to listen to someone else's advice)

it's never too late to completely turn things around. something may click tomorrow and you'll know what you wanna do. on the other hand, a meteor may kill you tomorrow soooo. dont think about the future so deeply as if it's promised to you. because it;s not. you'll run into opportunities when you didn't even consider them existing. take things a day at a time my friend~~~

and in desperate times of need and sadness. eat a sammich.

Definitely not, and I'm not worrying about it. I have little reason to worry about the future that will most likely change drastically as I change. That along with a changing society and economy means long term goals and decisions are not for me.

I have plenty of options for what college I go to when I graduate next year, I have an idea on my major, and I can change it if I want. I know I can do whatever I want so I'm not going to worry about what I decide to do. I have faith that I will figure it out. I can be successful by just making shorter term decisions and not worrying as much about what will happen later in life.

Every once in a while the clock hits 2 AM before I realize it and I lay in bed staring at the blank ceiling wondering what I'm going to with my life / what career path I'm going to take. After having that lingering feeling constantly nagging me throughout high school, I'm finally in my senior year and graduation is right around the corner yet I still don't know exactly what I want to major in. All I have to go on is the hunch that I'm interested in Kinesiology or Hospitality/Culinary and I have to choose one. Then I start asking myself questions like "What if I go through with this and I don't like it in the end? It'll be too late to switch majors (tuition is anal-breaching expensive in America) and I'll be miserable with some career I don't like for the rest of my life." I feel lost. Growing up sucks

Have you found a career you're happy with? If so, how did you come to it, or how did it come to you?


My path maybe doesn't apply to most people...

However, despite your ultimate questions, what I'm hearing out of this is less what my path was, and more that you aren't sure what you want to major in during college.
Unless you're doing a technical school (which could work for hospitality/culinary, but I don't think is correct for a kinesiology major), you should have to do a bunch of gen ed requirements, and not have to declare a major until later. For a 4-year (which it sounds like you are about to enter?), you shouldn't have to declare for about 2 years, and there will be a ton of gen eds. Most people do the gen ed requirements during those two years, then declare and focus on their major's requirements. The gen eds are part of how you figure out what interests you for that major and ultimate career. You should be doing the intro classes of the two that interest you (kinesiology and something hospitality/culinary related) as part of your gen eds to help make sure you like them. If you like the study of the field, you'll probably enjoy some sort of work within the field; a good department will help you find and focus down to the part of the field you like once you've majored. Also, most colleges allow a double-major, for situations where you have multiple career-oriented interests (and minors for non-career study-interests).
Furthermore, if you work with your college's career center, you may be able to find internships related to the fields that interest you, which would allow you to try out your field early on as well as have experience to add to your resume post-graduation.

Also, if you like kinesiology and food/cooking, perhaps you'd find a nutrition career interesting? No, not quite kinesiology, but if you're still searching for what interests you, something like human biology (which includes both dietary and movement aspects) might interest you, hence the idea that you might like nutrition as well. You might also really like nursing (weird mix of hospitality and kinesiology, plus additional human bio).

Furthermore, I may not be old enough for this to apply to myself, but I gather from the much older peoples that some career paths (either their own or a friend/colleague's) occur where they keep jumping into a rather tangental-but-related job from their last. As a consequence, about 3 jobs in, they're doing something completely different from what they originally did. So, even if you do major "incorrectly" and find yourself in a job in your field that makes you miserable, it's not a life sentence. You can jump to very different jobs within your field (many fields have a wide range of potential jobs that drastically vary from each other), or after a few job changes, somehow be in a completely different field.

No. But I'm not in any rush, either. My current priorities are graduating high school, and getting my driver's license.

People are pressuring me to apply for college and I'm just here like:
