I graduated in May 2005 with a degree in civil engineering, now I am a Structural Engineer with a solid company. I live in a beautiful house and have everything I need. My family is great and we would do anything for each other. I travel a lot at home and abroad. EVERYTHING SOUNDS GREAT... WELL, I DESIRE SOMETHING ELSE. Recent events in my life have me questioning what is important to me right now. I am 23 years old and my career life is already paved out before me. I am afraid I don't like that. I had a girl that the fairy tale life was worth... now I don't. My mistakes have shown me that I have a lot of growing to do, as well as finding meaning and purpose in my new life. I want to do something to help people grow and learn; in turn I know they will help me be a better person. My travels have opened my eyes to other cultures and the uniqueness of them; in turn I see the obstacles they face. The main obstacle durning my day is getting up and struggling through a well paying job. There is no comparison. I am considering giving up everything here to meet people that will help me find the real meaning of life, love, and happiness! I would like to talk to some people and get some advice from you!!
