What direction do I take?

Hey Blog Followers!

It's been a while since my last post...and I feel that's how I start off almost every post I write. 

Is it just me or do you ever just feel overwhelmed with what direction to take in your life/career/clothing options? I already have a hard time deciding what I'm going to be eating for lunch, let alone what I'm suppose to be doing career wise for what it feels like the rest of my life. It's tough and I know many of us 20 something age group (or many 30, 40, 50 year olds) can relate. 

I don't classify myself as a Computer Science anything. I just say i'm a teacher who teaches computers and sometimes I don't even know what that means. However, when I talk to other people I feel they think I went to school for this (kinda did, but not really) and that I can automatically fix any computer program and know exactly all the cool innovative things that are out there or will be coming out. Sometimes I do and MANY times...I have no clue. I'm learning just as much (typical teacher answer...), but it's the truth! Especially with technology, there is always a new thing out there, a new update, a NEW SOMETHING!

So, it leads me back to the question, "What direction am I suppose to take?" In the field of computers it feels like the options are endless. Graphic design, computer programming, teaching, engineering, coding, Google certifications, Microsoft's so overwhelming. I keep asking myself, where do I need to invest my time and money, especially because this field can be a financial commitment. 

Part of me has had the fun sucked out of it, because my hobby became work (which is not a bad thing, but not a good thing either-I'm feeling indifferent about it now) However, it's just added some pressure that I wasn't ready to deal with. I know in the end it's going to turn out beyond better than what I could imagine. I am thankful that there are opportunities to be looking into. There are so many gifted and talented people out there and they are the ones who inspire me to keep seeking, whatever it is that I am hoping to find. 

I want to hear from you too blog followers! Tell me I'm not alone in this search of, "What direction do I take?" question. Life is exciting and the sky still feels like the limit. I hope it does for you too!

These are the things I had to say.
