I’ve been set ADRIFT

Sorry that I haven’t posted in a while. I’m back in school which means shitty Wi-Fi, and my phone has spoilt completely. So I have been sans internet connection for the past two months.

Anyway, we have left medical school after the long journey of pursuit, and are now in the department of human nutrition and dietetics, and it’s kind of fun. In the beginning, I was totally giddy because so many ideas were flowing into and through me about what i could do with my degree. There were so many options, UNICEF, Wyeth, Kellogs, Nutritional adviser to the stars, or a restaurateur. But now the excitement has dimmed because it’s not the same as before. In medical school I had my entire life planned out; when I was going to graduate, where i was going to practice and do my residency, what specialty i was going to go into. But except for the initial flurry of ideas, I am struck with the stark reality that i have no idea what I’m going to do in the future. I think this is what people feel like when they’ve been chasing a dream for so long and they either achieve it or it’s snatched from their grasp. Because throughout my life I’ve ignored every other career path apart from medicine and now I feel like I’ve been set adrift in the sea of life, without a compass or land in sight.

Any and all ideas are welcome.
