Can Jack Sparrow lend me his compass?

I need a direction.. and a compass to get me there.  Ok.. I have a job at a local youth organization that is awesome but I am realizing.. what am I going to do after that?

One last year of service for Ameri Corps.. and a Peace Corps application that is under Medical Review.  I am waiting on a letter from my doctor with the specific details on my asthma and some other things.

This process is dragging out eh.. its not like I am in a rush or going anywhere soon.

The hubby hunt is no longer exciting or thrilling as it first was full of the blush of new hope and optimism. Now I am quite cynical on the whole thing.  I am getting the feeling from my salat that perhaps I should just focus on the Peace Corps and dump the hubby hunt all together for now.

Where is Jack Sparrow’s compass when you need it?

I also have talked with my girl friends about grad school.  It seems like a reasonable back up plan and I also have a renewed interest in working for a government agency.

So now I am more seriously looking into taking the GRE’s so I can apply for some specific fellowships and school at the very least.. I will get the GRE’s out of the way and since those are good for six years still be able to apply to grad schools before I come back from the Peace Corps if and when that happens.

I want to feel a level of certainty regarding the direction in my life but I have yet to find it since my graduation from University in 2009.  If only Allah put an X marks the spot sign so I would at least know I was on the right path.. that would be great if not completely unrealistic.

  1. The Jack Sparrow’s compass.. How interesting. Yes if everyone had that, wouldn’t that be interesting and well easy too. But I guess you gotta be the compass yourself at times. All the Best.
