I am so terrified of graduating next semester! I am not ready for the real world... getting a real job... being motivated to do stuff. Ahhhh! Or how about having so much debt from student loans I can't even think straight. I am absolutely scared out of my mind. What if I don't like my profession? What if I hate my job? What if I can't do it? I am even afraid to set up an internship for next semester for fear that I will choose the "wrong" place for me and be miserable. Hold me.

[b]hello to you wooitsmolly! during my last few months in college, i felt scared too because the reality is about to come that i'll be facing the real world. i will be earning for my own self and that i will be using my profession to become successful in life. i never like my course anyway but now, i am earning although i'll be having a better future abroad. it is just that there are too many exams to take for me to be able to work out of the country. well, it is a matter of trying to love your profession more in order for you not to worry about your future. don't worry about things. think about the present for you to be able to set a goal to have a better future. happy posting and happy mylotting![/b]

If it makes you feel any better, I realized that I'm a lot closer to graduation than I really expected. I thought I had at least one more semester or so to go, and then while I'm working on my schedule for the spring semester, I discovered that I'm actually a heck of a lot closer to graduation. As in, I'll actually graduate in the spring but I'll have a few classes to take during the summer and then I'll get my degree after that. I can't believe I'm that class. It's actually kind of scary. I didn't expect to be there yet. I think it's more scary for me since it was kind of unexpected.

C'mere molly, I'll give ya a hug. Gotta watch pooping them panties though; although I guess it would increase the re-sale value to a percentage of your clientele, wouldn't it?

Being scared is good. Being too scared is not at all good. I suppose you can do something to come to grips with this problem. I am not feeling so hot right now. There seems to be nothing that I do that is right these days. Everything is turning out wrong.

Ok, take a couple of deep breaths and calm down.... It's not all that bad out here in the real world! You may hate your job or profession, but you won't know until you try it out a while! You may love it at first but come to hate it. Who knows? Life doesn't come with guarantees. You can always change jobs or professions, you know, even if it means more education. Just take the dive and do your best! I pray you have a happy and successful life.
