You're not the only one, Katie. To take it to a very basic level, work sucks. You HAVE to find something you want to do and do it. It's such a bummer at this age range, because you want to make the best decisions for you and your future, but have nothing to base them on. Does that make any sense at all? sorry. The system really is tough to work against; I wanted to work like a waiter job for a month, save up, go surfing for a month, go back to waiting tables for a month, back to surfing. After a year of that, if you wanted to get back into the "regular working world", your resume is MESSED up and pretty much unacceptable. What are we to do? Start a compound in Montana? As long as there is some good smoke up there!

Agreeing with wasting our young life working, I sold cars for about 6 months. The money was AWESOME. I had NO free time to write or record music (the reason I moved to CA). I worked every weekend, ALL weekend, and every holiday. I decided that at 24, I AM NOT WASTING WEEKENDS, HOLIDAYS, and FREETIME. In the words of Jon Bon Jovi, "it's my life". I am not here to spend it doing things that do not interest me.

But, like you said, just ask yourself "what do I really want to do?". Then start sending annoying postcards every week to the people who do that particular thing. Bug them, pester them, get your name into their head. Tell them you are interested in their field blah blah blah. After a while of this, they will have to contact you just to stop the postcards!
