"Now that I'm graduating, I'm ready to see what's next in my life. I want to find more meaning other than just what I do in my job. I have this list in my phone of things that I'm praying about; God's put them in my mind, but I'm not sure if that's what he's calling me to do right now. So in the next steps of my life, I'm asking myself questions: Do I want to coach basketball? Do I want to mentor high schoolers? Do I want to start a Bible study for kids? or Do I want to do some sort of community service work for the homeless? There are a lot of things I really want to do, but right now I'm in a praying stage of 'What is that next thing?' I just don't want to look back on my life 50 years from now and think, ‘well, why didn’t I do that thing that was important to me?’ or 'why didn't I follow what God was calling me to do?' I don't want to think that I wasted my life. I’m in the process of figuring it out and what's going to be the most meaningful to me down the road."
