What now? What's next?

What now? What's next? - student project

What now? What’s next? The two questions which any college student faces as the person is heading towards the finish line of their respective degrees. The anxiety of facing “life” which was hyped by parents and elderly people is felt immense during this time.


The time period of loitering around with your friends comes to an end as each of them moves into a different lane and will probably start earning money via the job that the college campus provide or via influence. While the education system doesn’t provide the necessary tools for personal development, it does make you ‘A COG IN THE MACHINE”. The creativity of the people gets killed. That statement is majorly true because while those who practice their craft which involves their creativity consistently emerges victorious, not many can maneuver and handle both, i.e., their job as well as keeping their passion alive.

What can you do to keep your passion alive? I am no “expert” but ask yourself the following questions

  • Do you even have a passion?
  • If so, do you have enough resources to pursue the passion?
  • Can your circumstance allow you to pursue it?

“To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it” -- Kurt Vonnegut.

 

While during this lockdown because of COVID-19, many of college students as well as people had a little relaxing/excruciating time of their lives. It is a boon to some and  bane to others and finally boils down to their choices and their perspective on things.

SELF-REFLECTION is a pretty powerful term and was imposed to everyone in the world during the lockdown. People were ultimately left with their choices. Do you like your house? Do you like the things you’ve accumulated for yourself? These powerful thoughts are some to consider.

College students ultimately, are young when you think about the grand universe and the infinite possibilities life offers because ultimately, LOOKING BACK WON’T SOLVE ANYTHING.

This project is a personal advice for myself and other people who can relate to this feeling of pressure.I am 20 years old and about to finish my bachelor's degree. I was brought up with a predetermined notion that every college student has to face life or head to a job after their graduation.


Make the best choice you can and make sure you are happy about the choice you’ve made and KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
