    This is a very broad question, I know. So just answer it to the best of your ability. I'm going to step out to grab some grub. I better have something interesting to read when I get back.....

    Not at all, and that's why my life is beautiful.

    I've only been really good at one thing, and that is fucking things up. I realized if I want a good life, I must take the "I" out of everything.

    No. Life for me has been unpredictable. I think I brain dumped most of the past dozen years lol Either way, I am in a good place right now.


    .. i had someone randomly trying to do an intervention with me last night on FB.

    Ask me again in a few months. It is sort of approaching a fork in the road.

    Not at all. I am still unsure yet if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

    From childhood through my college years, yes. Life during those years pretty much went as I expected. I knew exactly what I was doing because school came easy to me. Since then, definitely not. But hey, that's the fun of things.

    Yes and no.

    Yes: because I have a great family and friends, and I couldnt be happier with them, and with the expiriences Ive had in my life up to this point. My past is somthing I can look at with relatively good feelings.

    No: because, up untill about two weeks ago (for the last six years) my career goal has been to work for the Department of State and now...I've walked away from that.
    Im too good-natured, and kind at heart to really delve into and involve myself in the dirtyness of politics and bureaucracy.

    So, Im about a year out from my degree, and its too late to change my major and thus...I have no clue what I want to do for the rest of my life.

    I feel lost, because for the most part, Ive always been one to have a plan and it seems like this is the first time I dont have any ideas, or preconceptions about what my path in life is.

    I like to believe that everything happens for a reason, and that we all end up where we are meant to be in long run. The difficulty on our part, is navigating the path to get there.

    If you believe that everything happens for a reason (and I do, too), then over worrying is futile. I realize that is easier to say than believe. But if you work hard and try to do right, things will work out. That doesn't mean that it will work out in the way that you imagined, but that's what makes life interesting.

    I can't plan further ahead then my next meal, and those mostly come on schedule.

    All I know is that I never expected to be so happy with my life. I love my man and I'm enjoying my job with great colleagues, but never ever could I have imagined this job as a teenager. I love working out and eating right, and eating wrong and being lazy. I have 2 wonderful loving families and some really great friends.

    I definately agree with you, and its definately hard to "let go" and not worry.
    I guess I worry because, as long as I have a plan, I feel like I've got the guidance and security I need as I move ahead.
    Right now, I dont really have that (career wise) and I have had it for the last six years.
    Its a bit frightening, but also very exciting because Im now in the unknown.

    Not at all. Neither professionally nor personally. It sucks, sometimes I feel I have hit rock bottom but such is life, I am trying to just hang there.

    Of course not. But that's not a bad thing at all.

    No, it's not going as planned. That's why I'm so happy! After I learned not to rely on super specific plans, but rather enjoy the ride and see where it takes me, it got so much better.

    At the end of this year I was supposed to move to Vancouver to do the working holiday VISA (I'm from Australia). But instead I'm staying here for a couple more years since I've met my man, so priorities do change. Best thing is to go with the flow.

    My answer from locational astrology is: under the influence of Saturn on the DS, I'm not allowed to plan. Saturn teaches one to live in the moment. Now, if I move from under Saturn's effect, my planning muscles would get some exercise.
