Graduating from University, instantly thrusts you into the huge, wide world. And now, I am at the age where most people would feel unsure of what to do or where I am going. At least, that is what I am feeling now.
Grind through frustrations for wealth?
Learn to enjoy what you have to do?
Seek what you enjoy and be satisfied?
I really have no idea what I want and yet, unsatisfied with what I need to do.
So, I decided to take a gap year after a 3 year job where I feel that I am working and yet, not. Everyday just passed as another day. Like a factory machine, an endless cycle of action filled with feeling of mundanity – to the point that you have loss sense of dates and time.
“Wait, what day is it? I can’t tell…I have been doing this everyday. Lets just call everyday ‘Monday’.”
The reason for that gap year was that I wanted to take time, and discover -what, how, where and when-.
“What” is my aspirations
“How” to dispose of my childish dispositions
“Where” do I really want to be
“When” to -grow up- and accept realities
It is already the 6th month of my gap year. And I still have no idea.
But, I will still look forward, to the day where I will know the answers and, the excitement Teddy (Robin Williams’ Theodore Roosevelt) has for tomorrow.
Larry: I have no idea what to do tomorrow…
Teddy: How exciting!
