I interrupt regularly scheduled political blogging to discuss an issue both close to heart and one I don't want to face: college is coming to an abrupt end. I have no idea what I want to do, other than the fact that I like to write and love politics. Part of me doesn't necessarily want to work in either field though, because hobbies are fun (even if they are time consuming). Though, they're some of the few things that I'm actually qualified for. I feel pulled into all sorts of directions - be it journalism, joining some random Boston corp and working in politics (preferably in campaigns - and even more preferably around pr/event coordinating). Part of me feels the tug of the stage - and god I wish that would go away, because a long, hard and poor life would that be.
What people do after college is actually a very politically relevant question. College degrees just aren't worth what they used to be and a lot of recent college grads are having a tough time. Seeing as how I still don't know exactly what I want to do, it looks like I'll be joining that crew. However, I'm not exactly scared. I can't remember who told me this, but once I heard some really great advice: your twenties are for figuring out what you want to do, while you're thirties are for actually doing what you want. So, that leaves me with seven years to explore and actually find the career I'd like to partake in.
Anyone pay for blogging? LOL
