    What am I supposed to do?

    Okay so I just watched Up, and now I'm a giant pile of tears. Firstly, I'd like to say that Pixar hit their peak with that film, it was fucking amazing.

    Secondly, it made me so aware of how much of a failure I am. My birthday is in about 21 days and I'll be 16, and I've gone through so much of my life and I still don't know what to do. There are kids younger than me who have their whole life set up for them, they know exactly what they want to do and they just do it. I started off at school successfulish and I got good grades. Then, something happened. I started just not doing work and I didn't care and my grades dropped down. Now in year/grade 10, I feel that I'm a lost cause and that if I don't make it, I'm screwed for the rest of my life.

    I don't know what I want to do now. I know about 5 years ago I was saying "I want to do __ blah blah" and all adults would say "You don't have to make that decision right now". I'd always calm down but I know that I need to decide now or very very soon.

    I seriously am lost with life and I don't know what I have to do. I'll take any bit of advice that can help me in any way.

    It's okay Inferno. I'm 21 and I'm still in highschool that, with a little back bone on my end, will be completed this year.

    You're 16, don't worry about it. Just look at the personal things you can fix and work towards that.

    As a 17-year-old, just chillax, brotha. You have your whole life ahead of you to make these decisions. You gotta plan ahead, but you don't need to make up your mind about everything right now. You're not even in college yet (unless that's different in Australia than over here in Hell I mean the US). You have plenty of time to decide on what career path you want and set yourself up for it.
    THE END IS FUCKING NIGH! FLY, YOU FOOLS!

    I'm 33, for reference. I was always paralyzed with fears of not making it to college after high school (a big deal for my family). Then, when I got into college, I was paralyzed with fears of not getting a job when I graduated. Then, when I graduated and got a job, I walked into work every day with the fear that people would realize I'm just a fraud who has no clue what he's doing. But after awhile, I realized most of my colleagues were in similar boats - all of us worried about proving our worth over and over again in societal systems that frequently value results over effort. And I realized all that worrying I did, for years, didn't help me one iota. So I've worked to avoid what I think of as unfocused worrying - that vague, general worrying about things too vast in scope to control - and I've been much happier for it. And still going strong at my job. And all of those people you see with all the ready plans for the future? That's fine, there's nothing wrong with having set goals and direction, but not one person I knew back in high school or college is living the life they thought they'd be living. Life comes up with new problems, new friends, new opportunities all the time. My only advice would be that, even when you're feeling unfocused and directionless, leave yourself open to the world around you. Stay engaged, with people, with school, appreciate the little moments and triumphs, and eventually, if you keep your eyes and heart open, you'll have your "Aha" moment.

    Don't worry, everything will work out. I'm 17, I want to be a doctor but my grades aren't that great, though I don't study so much, but I don't worry too much because I know everything will work out and that somehow I will become a doctor, but if I didn't knew what to do I wouldn't worry either, I would keep studying, I would see what I like the most and I would choose something to do. You are still young, you can see people studying with 40 years or even more, so you have a lot of time and you don't have to choose now, but it would be better that you did.

    You're not a failure, you're just in a constant process of learning that always comes with trail-and-error. Heck, I'm working in neurosciences and I'm still asking myself wtf I am doing from time to time.

    I had not even figured out what I wanted at that age. You have a loooooong way to go. How can you be screwed for the rest of your life if you barely lived most of your life? You will look back on it. Predetermined paths do not exist. Set life goals do not have to match set points in your life. I took a few years to travel and work before going to uni.

    I'm 14 and I do online school because public school nearly drove me to suicide and I don't know why, I switched a few months after I turned 14 and I feel the exact same way.

    Nothing is fully set, especially not when you are this young
    Im 18 now, and pretty much in the same position. Sometimes not knowing what to do is normal and natural, yer not alone with that dude. There are millions that feel the same way

    im 21, gonna get my diploma from this fancy engineering college next year with my well paying job ready thanks to my good internship, which was what i always wanted. and you know what i think? i HATE it.

    i hate every second of those classes i go to. hate all my lecturers, most of my classmates too. leaving the campus feels like freedom. even worse was when i was doing the modern slavery in that fancy company for a piece of paper that i needed to graduate and get a job that i'll most likely hate as well. and THIS is what i wanted.

    only reason im not shooting myself in the head is that i actually found my true calling which i'll study in college after i get that diploma(i'd love to switch now but cant cus of some laws and shit), which is language studies. in my country that field is very deep into history politics and literature as well, which i love.

    if i wasnt so dead set on going to engineering, i would be in that field i want now and i would be a lot happier than i am. having plans at early age only narrows your vision for your future. dont get me wrong, but you are just a kid. dont narrow your vision for your future by making plans that early in your life. if you really want to do something for your future, discover your true passion.

    never forget that passion=/=interests as well. i joined this college cus computers and tech stuff always caught my interest(they still do), but it took me an entrance to a few engineering maths lecture to say "fuck all this shit". to find what you truly like, go and actually try doing it. only then you'll find your calling.
