For the Rest of Your Life

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where,” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat. - Lewis Carrol
 Maybe you’re in high school, maybe even middle school (over achiever), and you’re thinking about college and what you want to do for the REST OF YOUR LIFE. Honestly, I’m a senior in high school, but I’m also in my first year at JTCC and two years ago I had no clue what I wanted to be. I thought that if I chose a major or even a college, that my plans would be written in permanent marker for the REST OF MY LIFE. No chance for change, no freedom, no eraser. Sketch shows us how to break that fear. It shows you that you have the power to take charge of your future and not be afraid of changing it. Go see a counselor, check out the VA Wizard (personally I’ve used it and it was amazingly accurate and a great tool), take a look at Sketch, the career pathways and explore your possibilities.  Just start with “sketching” it out, then you can move onto more concrete drawings, but get your pencils, open minded paper and willing eraser together first, then go crazy! It’s fun to try new opportunities and to not be afraid of where they’ll take you. Go SKETCH it out!
