What do you plan to do?

I don’t know. I feel like this question has more weight by the year. What do I plan to do with my Sociology major? What do I plan to do after college? What do I plan to do with my life?

These are the advices that I received from strangers. It’s not that I don’t have a plan or vision for post-graduation, I do. I want to work with first-generation and low-income college or high school students through some sort of college-preparatory program or bridge program. Furthermore, I want to stay in the education field. However, I respond with a “I don’t know,” because I have no idea how the plans of my life will be in the next five years.

So what do I plan to do?

Who knows.
