Every high schooler knows that this is the time to decide what you want to be for the rest of your life. A scary but necessary choice, one that could ruin or support you for the rest of your life. In my opinion high school is still a great time to develop your interests. In high school there are so many more opportunities available to you. For example, you can study internationally, or be an intern at big companies. Why not take advantage of those opportunities. Alright I must tell you where I am right now. This weekend my family decided to travel to New York City. As the pathetic teenager that I am I've never been before. Right now I'm sitting on a sofa with my back to giant sky scrapers only fifty or so yards away. I've never seen buildings this tall or big. Speaking of opportunities ;), I'm glad I took this one. I've always enjoyed traveling. Seeing new sites, and meeting new people, vacations are always enjoying for me. I think if I'm ever to have kids, I will bring them to foreign countries instead of Disney or Orlando. Not that Disney, and Orlando, are not the most magical places on earth, but when it comes down to it, traveling to Paris or London is much more educational and fascinating, in my mind, than riding dumbo at Disney. A cultured person is always the best kind. Traveling can lead you to places and people you never felt possible ;). However, traveling doesn't have to be the interest you develop. Maybe you like going to concerts. Then save up and go to as many concerts possible. You never know, maybe your future potential employer is really interested in a specific band that you've happen to have seen (exploit that). You could also collect art, CD's (or records if you're that old school), foreign coins, go to theatrical plays, or maybe you love learning new languages. Then go for it. Passions are something you enjoy, so it's easy to pursue them, and then they can lead you into whole new worlds. Who knows, maybe one of those worlds will have a career that happens to suit you. I've heard from several older people, that if you work for a job you love you'll never work a day in your life. Additionally, if you don't like the typical work scene, and want to Work From Home or from anywhere, then there are many careers for you. Blogging happens to be one of them. Look online there are many people who make a living, and more, off writing everyday or so. You can blog about a lot of subjects. Have something you're interested in (any of the things I listed before would work)? You could start your own business and be your own boss. The most important thing when deciding your career is to keep your interests in mind. If you don't have any strong interests then explore anything that you can or find a little interest in.
