HELP I NEED BREAKFAST!!! (and a future career; not sure which is more important)

When you ask most people my age "hey what do you want to do with your life?" they'll give you a two hour speech about how they're majoring in blah blah blah and they want to be a blah blah when they grow up. A good percentage of them know exactly where they want to be professionally in 5, 10, even 20 years from now. I have friends playing tours or selling their art or creating award winning films.

And then there's me who can't even figure out what she wants for breakfast today (seriously cereal? half a toasted bagel with crunchy PB? fridge oats? THE POSSIBILITIES ARE EXHAUSTING).

Here's what I DO know:

  •  in 10 years I'll almost be 29 (hopefully I'll be married and starting a family; first I need to find a man that will look at me for more than the sole purpose of telling me I have something stuck in my teeth). 
  • I'll still be short
That's it, that's all I got.

Currently I'm majoring in communications at the wonderful University of Tampa and am HEADS OVER HEELS in love with my core curriculum (legit don't mind waking up for an 8 a.m. if it's for a core class.) My issue with this is that I can't tell if I enjoy them because I'm actually interested and genuinely good at what I'm accomplishing OR if they're just easy. 

What happens if they're just easy? Am I wasting my time doing nothing to prepare me for a future career? The stress of figuring this all out is double my size. I'm just trying to understand and experiment with my talents and see where I can go. 

This summer, and the next few years of college will be my blog and I, attempting to create a path to the right place for me (hopefully that path will be lined with pizza and donuts and lots and lots of money).
