I wouldn't mind an office job right now, I can't do alot of jobs due to my knees, I have weak ligaments in my knees and can't stand up for a 8 or 12 hour shift

I'm in a similar situation too. I;m 26 and I still don't know what I want to do. My family is on my case about it. I also got good grades in high school, but I did poorly in college. I'm at the community college now. I've been there on and off since 2003. I was very confused, so somebody told me to see the school's career counselor. He was no help he told me to be a teacher or a nurse those are 2 careers I'm not interested in.

I know how you feel. I'm 20, and don't know what I want to do. It seems like I'm watching my friend's careers take off, get their lives started, start families - and I'm still living at home trying to figure out what to do with myself. My problem seems to be that I don't know what my passion is. I want to travel, but I'm afraid I would feel guilty about leaving my family, or get homesick, or suffer worse panic attacks. I would like to be a healer in some form, but have a hard time being around people when sick. Therefore, I'm looking at something more along the lines of massage or reiki. It would be nice to get in touch with my intuitive side - then I could do readings or something, but I always let my conscious mind get in the way. Performing would be lots of fun, but if I ever had a solo.. oof. Stage Fright!! I just wish I could find one thing that I'm really good at and enjoy! I don't want to do nothing, but I don't want to get stuck doing something I don't like, either.... and it's so hard watching the friends that seemingly popped out of the womb with a plan for their lives! Rawr, Rawr! >.<

I am 35 this year, had a 16 year relationship (13 of them married) been through a divorce, lost my home, had so many different jobs and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
So I figure that I may never grow up and I'm just going to enjoy the ride and do a bit of everything. =)

I feel that way too, I guess everyone concentrates on being grown up, but I am a bit more bohemian, the only reason why I stress about money is due to my student loan
