... animals. And ive already been looking at colleges (Northern College and Guelph) thats it, for now. But what really has me at a cross road with myself..is that i dont know if i actually want to do it. I know its a bit early to decide since i have a year and half to go, but i cant help thinking.. do i really want to work with animals? Theres just something i feel im missing, something that i think i need to figure out. But i truely, do not know how. And i dont know of its to do with my friends or family or my enviorment(need a new scenery)... i know its internal that im struggling with i just dont know what i need to do to fix that. I feel like i dont know what to live for i need to feel complete and know that what i do as a career will actually impact something that will make my life purpose worth it..though i dont know what that is.. i think i just need some really good strong advice something to maybe inspire me to change and figure out who i am and what i will eventually be. Thankyou
Its not nice standing in the gateway of your future and not knowing which of the many paths to take. So how to decide? There is more than one way of looking at it. First is do you want a future with a strong career path that will provide good earning, sufficient to be able to do something you might prefer to do 20 years down line? In that case the answer is Robotics. In addition, considering working with animals rather smacks of problems relating to humans, as why not humans? In that case robotics is even more remote from them.
Alternatively you can write down all the main things that you don't want to do. Science, journalism, artist, politician, etc, etc might be such. So by knowing what you really don't want to do, that narrows the field down quite a lot. So now you do the same for the things you feel you would like to do. Then you shuffle that list into some order of preference. So now is further narrowed down.
Is there any commonality between the first two things on that list? There might well be, so by going for that commonality, you leave yourself the option of either. In short the more commonality you can find between things that you wouldn't mind doing, the more that commonality is the indicated path.
Its hard, but you need to decide for yourself, its your life. No doubt friends and relatives all have ideas. Unless it appeals to you, ignore them, it will only increase your confusion.
