Mess Around and Find Out (What You Want to Do)

It’s perfectly normal not to know what you want to do, so try not to put too much pressure on yourself to decide. Take a class that vaguely interests you, try out a job/internship just to see if you like it, ask someone in the field to give it to you straight. Every step of the way will teach you something, whether it be about what you are passionate about, skills you need, or even that it’s not right for you. You’re doing exactly what you need to do, even if it doesn’t seem like it now.
