There's so much confusion.
Some people tell me - now is the time to do what you really want, to get the education you want, to try for your dreams. And that those things are not impractical because they do something for me.
Some people tell me - be more practical. Doing what you want is nice, but it's a luxury and you should focus more on being able to get a job and really get somewhere in life.
What's the point of it all? Do I take opportunities as they come, even if they're not the most practical, because carpe diem? Because now is my chance?
Do I do what's most practical because it's what's most practical?
Is my end goal to do what I really want or to do what's most practical? Sometimes they're not mutually exclusive, but what if they could be?
What am I trying for here?
