odd future?

eOTo Tom asks, ‘what does the future hold for me?’  He continues, ‘a question that is constantly on my mind and maybe on yours too.  You want to know where your life is going, if the choices you make will have an impact on your future, how well off you’re going to be, and if you’ll die happy or alone.  These thoughts are always nagging in the back of my mind, which I could ignore when I was younger as I don’t think I had a care in the world, and was enjoying every moment.  Then with school systems implanting questions in your mind such as, what do you want to be when you’re older, I was excited by jobs I thought were cool and impressive.  I wanted to be a policeman, then a veterinarian at a zoo, and then a fire fighter.  As I got older I began to think of careers that matched my skillset, and that I would happy doing.  I am learning to worry less about what am I going to do, and who am I going to be, as searching for the answer can be stressful.  Right now, I want to be dancer and I am training and gaining experience in the field.  Don’t worry if you currently don’t know what you want to do in the future.  Nothing is fixed forever, and like Odd Future, you could be in a hip hop collective, you could be a TV star in a skit show, you could have a clothing line… you could retrain and return to your childhood dreams of crime busting, fire fighting, and elephant saving.  Enjoy what you are doing.’
