I’m 27 and STILL don’t know what I want to do with the rest of my life…

Full disclosure: emotional post here…

Do you ever get on Facebook or Instagram and see all the people you went to high school with and think “god…my life is no where as put together as theirs..” I feel like it must happen to all of us, but it is hard for me to imagine that other people feel the way I do because everyone else seems so put together! Here I am, 27, in a [military] relationship but not married, lost in my career path, barely scraping by financially, homesick, trying to find my way around this new state we so abruptly moved to [that’s a story for another time], and…out of shape. I thought for SURE by the time I was 25 I would have had it all figured out. Nope. Not even close. So, what do I DO to get it “all figured out?” I don’t know…

this snapchat filter is the only thing that’s helping me rn…i know – it’s obnoxious ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I know, I know..I should not compare my life to others and I should be grateful for what I have [which I absolutely am!] but something is missing. And I think I finally narrowed in on what it is…my career [or lack thereof]. I am educated yet I am “under-qualified” for any sort of job that interests me. [A little background: I have a BS in Economics and have zero work dealing with anything remotely related to Econ. After I graduated and up until recently, I was working as PI paralegal; I liked it and I was good at it, but I wanted something that wasn’t so mundane and had a little more flexibility]

For a minute there I thought I wanted to be a teacher. So, I impulsively enrolled in grad school and was loving it at first, but here I am working as an aid at an elementary school and it’s just…okay. So now I’m like, shit…what noowww??? I do not know, but what I do know is I don’t want to enroll in more schooling and put myself in even more debt!

My “dream job” would be a job where I can work remotely so that the next time a military move comes up, I can bring the job with me and I won’t have to go through the torture of job hunting every three years…let’s be real, job hunting SUCKS! AND it’s hard to even get your foot in the door anywhere or even know if the company is reputable when you don’t know anyone nor the area! There’s so many scams out there is crazy!! And don’t even get me started on these pyramid scheme “get-rich-quick” jobs like Rodan + Fields, LuLaRoe, LipSense, etc…

So here I am, 27 years old, started over once and thinking about doing it again…what’s wrong with me? SOS, please!!!

To end on a positive note…here is a picture of my dog on Thanksgiving receiving his special dinner [don’t worry, I made sure all I fed him was doggo friendly!]

Happy Thanksgiving, my handsome puppers! ❤
