Keep moving forward

I got an email from my academic advisor saying it's time to make appointments to be advised on classes for next semester, so shit. I went to a meeting about this interdisciplinary program that will let me get a certificate and take some cool classes, so I'm trying to decide if I want to do the conflict resolution branch or the human rights and social justice branch. But then for funnies, I decided to look at non profits and various organizations that I may want to intern for in college and I feel very frustrated because none of them are exactly what I want. I don't know what I want. But three hours ago, I had some idea of what I wanted- that if I apply to the human rights and social justice branch that I am definitely decided on, I will have all the skills I need to be a valuable participant of the human rights organization that is perfect for me. Now, I feel lost. I know that I don't have to know right now, but I want to get started. I really just want to work at Disney World and travel and not do anything.

If anyone has any suggestions of cool organizations, that would be awesome. If anyone can direct my life goals, also appreciated.


  1. Well, you're still just a freshman, so maybe just take a few classes that catch your eye to see what you like?

    I've always known what I've wanted to study/pursue which is as much of a curse as it a blessing. There's always an obstacle to overcome, something blocking my path, and a lot of disappointment.

    I say, research organizations that are near and dear to your heart, or something that you're passionate about. You mentioned trying to decide between the human rights and social justice branch program, and there are TONS of organizations associated with those topics.

    Best of luck!

  2. Stay determined! College is a place to explore your options! I personally get so hung up on knowing EXACTLY what I want to accomplish. Although it would be nice to know that, I am learning to just go with the flow and be open. Good luck on finding an organization!
