Where to begin? I am a 20ish guy who has been going to city college for three years. I live with my parents. I currently do not have a job, and my employment history is spotty because I have social anxiety issues. My original plan was to transfer to a four year university after two years, but I got distracted. It is very difficult for me to focus because the classes I take do not interest me very much at all and I have an undiagnosed, untreated physical disability which inhibits me from doing any task uninterrupted for more than 30 minutes. In the the beginning I was somewhat focused because I had some vague idea about what I wanted my career to be. Because I am interested in politics I decided to major in polisci. Later, however, a relative told me that I should major in something more practical. I thought this was good advice because I had know idea what to do with a polisci degree. My grades were decent in my first year, but after that they began to slide downhill. I thought I should try something different and take classes relating to accounting, because I thought it was a practical career choice I could be good at it. Quickly I found that still could not focus and I didn't do well enough in those classes. My GPA by the end of my second year was around 2.5. I then decided to quit school altogether for a semester. I didn't feel ready to go back this time around, but I caved in to pressure from my parents and peers. So what is my plan now? Unless I change I am going to transfer with a polisci degree, get in to some university, and then...no idea! I have sought advice from counselors, friends, and parents, and I still don't know what I should do and it is frustrating the hell out of me. The problem that has always plagued me throughout my life is that I have never been good at anything, even though I am told all the time that I am smart. I guess I am somewhat "school smart" discounting my track record for the past 3-4 years, and I have zero "street smarts." I desperately need some direction in my life and I don't know how to find it.

Im not really good with advice but i hope this one helps. RANDOMGUY21 you need to get it together! what i usually do when i've lost track of my life is write down all the things your doing wrong, then let someone else write down what they think your doing wrong.Compare your problems of yourself and the other persons problem with you. Try to improve on focusing on the important things and cross out every problem. Hopefully you'll know what to do with your life and find a job that YOU think is suitable. OH LORD that was probably bad advice Goof luck ;-D
