Would you be my worry doll?
Hi, worry dolls. Good to see you. These days, I think about my future a lot. I’m studying English in Vancouver now. I have to go back to Korea and to school in 4 months. After I go back to Korea, I have a lot of things to do.
First I will study English and Japanese for TOEIC and JLPT because I need high marks to graduate. (My major is ‘Business Administration’ and ‘Japanese Language and Literature’). And I have to get some computer licenses for my resume. And then I will take classes at school. After classes I will look for internships or contests. So when I graduate school, I have to get a job that I want. That is my problem. I don’t know what I want to do. Maybe you can say ´Try something! Anything you can do ´. But I don’t have enough time. If I´m a freshman or a sophomore, I can do anything. But I’m a senior. ..I only have one year left.
(Worry dolls said: What did you want to be when you were young? What did you like?)
Ok. I’m going back to my childhood to search what I wanted to do. I liked playing the piano. But I think it can’t be my job because I quit playing the piano after 6th grade. I don’t have a gift. And I liked making things such as clay toys. When I was a child I made some mini dolls with clay and I gave them to my friends as gifts. Whatever they liked that or not, I liked that. But it was just a hobby couldn’t be a job. When I went to elementary school, I wanted to be a nurse because I read a book about Nightingale. That changed to an acupuncture doctor after I graduated elementary school. But that was my mother’s dream. I didn’t want to be a doctor. After that I wanted to be a crafter and psychotherapist.
Actually I don’t remember anymore. When I was in my childhood, I just played outside with my friends. I’ve never thought about my future. And when I had to choose university, I chose one of my homeroom teacher’s recommendations. And I’m satisfied with my choice. My major was not fun to me but it’s not bad.
(Worry dolls said: So now, what do you want to be? What do you like these days?)
Well, these days I’m interested in Nike and NB footwear. And I like drinking coffee, cooking, reading books, talking to people, making things such as wool hat, and watching American dramas. But I still don’t know what I want to be.
How do people know what they want to be? Do they do anything they like?
Hey, worry doll. The bottom line in my story is this. I only have just one year left. I have to go back to school. Well, I can study English and Japanese in my semester. My semester starts on March 1st and September 1st.. If I take those out, I have about six months time. What can I do with my future? Should I try to find what I want to do? How? I don’t know what to do.
