The typical family conversation after graduation:

Family: “Congratulations on graduating! I’m so proud of you.”

Student: “Thank you so much! I can’t believe it’s already over.”

Family: “I know, time flies as you are growing older.”

Student: “Yeah, it sure does.”

Family: “So now that you have finished high school, well, what’s next?

A simple question, yes, but it is a rather heavy one to put on to a person. It is not something you could just answer so easily.

I call it, “The Golden Question.”

As senior year is coming to a close and graduation is right around the corner, many students are now being bombarded with a multitude of questions from close friends and family about their future. More specifically, what kind of plans they have regarding college, or just their career path in general. It is quite a scary question to the still young graduate and it is something that some still have yet to figure out. However, it is okay if you do not know what you are doing right now.

For those going to college, you are about to step through a door to a whole other world of experiences. These experiences are the things that will help shape you and show who you really are meant to be and will someday guide you to the right path.

If you are going into a technical college or apprenticeship then you must already have a good head on your shoulders because of your dedication to a committed trade.

For those not going to college, life is really what you make of it, there are so many opportunities in this day and age to make something of yourself informally, and while it is not easy, with some hard work and persistence, you too could find your place.

The future is unpredictable, and you could only take things day by day when figuring out things for yourself, so whether you are someone who is still finding their niche or passion or you are already set on your plans, take the time to find where you belong and be positive that it is where you want to be.
