What do I burn for

I'm 20. I do not have student debt, and that sounds like a good thing, but it's because I have no idea what to study.

What should I do

No law saying you gotta go to college. Of all things, I'd say follow your curiosity and see where it takes you. Even if you never find anything you're passionate about, it's not such a bad thing to wander through interesting stuff forever.

[@1229922,Curxuia] Hey, you are valid and you are useful. Society tends to have such disrespect for low-wage workers, but you guys are the backbone of the service industry and you guys make life a lot more pleasant for the rest of us. Having someone to help me find stuff is really helpful and comforting when I'm at the store. I hope you're making enough to get by. 🙏 Don't devalue yourself just because you're not fitting into the conventional capitalist model of success.
[@4199,BlueVeins] Thank you so much for that. I needed to hear it.

[@1229922,Curxuia] My DMs are open if you ever need to vent. I'm not always talkative but I can at least listen, dear.

If nothing else take business. People with a degree earn more money. It also helps your credit score. You will never regret saying you have a degree.
[@78387,Stereoguy] does that mean I need be good at mathematics and understanding numbers? I suck at basic mathematics and I don't think I can pick anything with business.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@1229922,Curxuia] Good at math no, but have a working knowledge of basic math. If you are thinking about liberal arts, history, art or something like that I would save your money. There is no saleable skills there.
[@78387,Stereoguy] maybe I shouldn't rull it out completely

travel. you may meet some new people or experience new things that will give your direction or inspiration of what you want to do
bluemachine · 26-30, M
[@1229922,Curxuia] try participating in healthy activities. could be yoga, tennis or biking etc. thats what i do when i move to a new city. helps to meet new people and learn new things
[@424990,bluemachine] I'm socially awkward. Im sure I make people uncomfortable.
bluemachine · 26-30, M
[@1229922,Curxuia] message me. we can talk more about it in pvt
What interests you?
[@1229922,Curxuia] Anyone else that you think you can discuss. I personally think this is a big decision of anyone's life that can change your life altogether, so you shouldn't be taking it lightly.

For that having kids part, you will need to talk to the guy clearly before coming to any terms. Do you have guy that you think you can spend your life with?
[@657449,ABCDEF7] I don't have any boyfriend right now. But I haven't tried to date either.
[@1229922,Curxuia] All the best for your future endeavours !

Burn for?
What do you like? Study what you like and find a job later .
Manfredthemanic · 13-15, M
[@1229922,Curxuia] That's not true. You'll know things and have a career or better chance at having a career.
[@1227125,Manfredthemanic] nobody wants to hire someone that studies art or philosophy. People who study that tend to be broke or work at the restaurant.
Manfredthemanic · 13-15, M
[@1229922,Curxuia] You could be an art or philosophy lecturer!

Go work in a warehouse like the rest of us and work your life away.
[@567763,blackcar] the people who work at Amazon are basically slaves to the company. I should make a post and expose them for what they do.
blackcar · 26-30, M
[@1229922,Curxuia] And it will do nothing because people need money to survive therefore they will deal with working in a shitty warehouse with shitty management and they will take it without complaining because they know if they say something it isn't going to change anything.
[@567763,blackcar] it's true , but I think lot's of people aren't aware of how exploitative Amazon is.

You want to study Philosophy or Linguistics.. I can support you intellectually ..

My friend is studying psychology, and she's not going to become one. I asked why and she said her grades are not good enough.

This is important because she is much smarter than me, but still can't do it.

[@1229922,Curxuia] sad to hear ..

What do you want to do?
Justmeraeagain · 51-55, F
[@1229922,Curxuia] Write in your most fluent language, possibly?☺️
[@1219236,Justmeraeagain] I can use translation and correct whatever I write wrong.
Justmeraeagain · 51-55, F
Might just be a fun thing to do. :)

there is a great need for electricians, plumbers, mechanics, machinists, welders
[@1144409,1490wayb] that would be a job that would make me insane and super unhappy.
