These days it is becoming increasingly difficult to secure jobs because of the economy. I hear people fighting about getting jobs. I want to get a job for the future, but now I have no clear dream. I wanted to get a job using English, so I entered university and studied English. If I also like children, does that mean I’m suited to be an English teacher?
I can’t decide. I feel uneasy when I imagine my future. Can I become a good teacher? Is this really the best job?
I cannot stop feeling anxiety. I have no clear dream and cannot find a dream. I cannot find my aim and don’t know what I should do in university, or why I am studying now.
Some of my friends say the same thing. I think there are many students uneasy about the future. I will be 20 years old, but I cannot imagine becoming an adult. What is an “adult”?
What should I do now? Now my big aim is finding a clear dream and what I should do in university.
