Have you been in this stage of life where you are supposed to know what to do but you have no clue? What are your actions to overcome such crisis?

I'm currently going through that and suffering at the same time.

Pursue whatever interests you and don't be afraid of opening doors. You can change your mind at any time. I know the head prosecutor of a certain city and prior to being a prosecutor, he was a psychiatrist. He decided he hated his job and went to night law school. It's amazing really.

I'm not saying you need to pursue hard jobs or anything. But once you find a motivation, make it your fire and don't relent.

I know what I am to do, I just don't like it, and still have enough child left in me to keep dreaming that there's more to life than the mundane daily routine I'll have to fully adopt eventually.

I know what I need to do
But existential nihilism has made me not care

I got hit by it pretty hard, but it is/was a really rewarding experience.

I guess it's felt differently by each individual but my vague advices about it, since I don't know your particular situation, is to try new things and get out of your confort zone, and also to stop acting the way your family, friends and other people expect you to, and do what YOU want to do, because it's your own life. It will certainly make you a stronger individual.

Most people go through this, and it's not always just a one time thing. Most people put up with stuff they hate until they're in a position to retire, and then go off to do what they enjoy.

You need to find something that makes you happy and see how you can fit that in to your daily life. Ask yourself what you brings you great joy in your life and go from there.

I want to stay at home and be NEET for eternity.

This is not possible.

Well I wouldn't consider it a problem if it's what you actually want to do, but that's certainly not the case for everyone, and doesn't seem to be the case for OP neither. I was just saying what helped me get over it, feel free to use the advice or not, I don't force you to.

Pretty much every college student ever. That's how it seems to me.

To overcome this feeling, I have to force myself to make decisions instead of being indecisive and wallowing. Once I've actually come up with a few different plans of action, it's easier to look at each option and say "that doesn't seem bad" or "hell no" or "well, I guess this option sucks the least."
