My friend asked me “so wats ur plan?”. I was confused. I said “will go home after lunch, finish off my assignment and go to sleep”. She smiled and said “I meant long-term”.
Then I thought so whats my plan? Do i have one? Just to finish off that conversation with her I said “will do masters”. Then she asked “on what”. I somehow managed to change the topic but after that moment, this question started stirring in my mind. Looks like everyone knows what they are doing other than me.!
1. Always thought about myself as someone who can motivate others. When I was very young I wanted to become a teacher.
2. I love reading. English literature is my savior when I want to ignore the world. Is it just a hobby? I doubt.
3. Psychology! Amazing subject. Know very less about this subject. Knowledge from few general books thats all I have. I want to know more about that subject.
4. Software sector. Being a technical student I love software. It’s a subject I learn because I know I am good at it and can survive but, I never thought of it as a passion. It was just an easy path to get settled.
I would love to plan life this way.
“I want to take a year off and figure out what I want to do with life. I want to travel, read and experience things I haven’t seen yet in that one year. One year is what I ask for me. All I have been doing was going to school, college in this entire life. At least, next time I want to make sure that I do something I want to do rather than what I need to do or what others expect me to do. Since I have no idea about my wants, I will wait for that “sign” which always pops up when you need it. “
But, you want to know where my plans shatter! Right in the first sentence. I just can’t take a year off. In short I have no plans. 😦 I will just take life as it comes. The “sign” will pop anyway, just that I will have to watch out for it always. Until then I will just do something.
