What Do You Want to Do? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By James G., Brooklyn, NY

     “What do you wanna do in life, man?” I hate this question. What I hate even more is what I automatically spit out every time.

“I don’t know, man.”

It angers me that I do not like my reflex response. Lots of people have no idea. Relax, James, everything is going to be okay. Still, it seems that the age when students begin to choose their professions or concentration of study is getting younger and younger. I am worried and have been since the eighth grade, so this mania above my neck and below my hair is nothing new.

It isn’t all bad, though. At least I know what I do not want to pursue. I have never been good at science and math is not my forte. However, beyond my aversion to classes in the newest building of my high school, I have no idea what I want to do.
