I don't know what I am doing anymore

Hey, friends!
Heads up - Today’s issue might sound a little sad. If you don’t wish to be a part of my sufferings, you can stop reading at this point. See you next week!
Yeah, so I don’t know what I am doing anymore. And it’s pretty scary, to be honest. I doing fine academically, it’s just that it feels pretty hollow at times. I don’t really know what is wrong. Some would say I’m in love, some might say I’ve lost direction in life, while still others would say I’m not doing exciting things in life.
In all fairness, some or all of that might be true. Apologies if I sound rambly, but I really am clueless at this point. I wish there was someone guiding me all the way to my death bed, but apparently that’s now how growth or life in general works. One is supposed to figure out along the way. And clearly, I’m not doing the best job at it.
I usually keep to myself. In fact, I loved being alone, reading every text I could find around me, sipping coffee and listening to whatever it is that Spotify plays on my headphones. Apparently, that has changed. I mean, I think it is pretty normal for it to happen. I’m just surprised that I was not aware of it myself sooner.
In retrospect, I believe change is hard. Whatever may be the cause of change in me - mentally, physically, behaviorally, I think it is for the better. So, yes onward and upward from here.
That felt great - venting out my thoughts. Thank you so much, if you have read until this point. I have not made any edits, so please excuse me if I’ve made any errors.
Have a great life. Talk to you soon.

Happy, good hair days :)

I finished reading The Code Breaker, and it is one of the most influential books that I have read to date. It might sound crazy, but I am seriously considering studying Biology, once I’m done with my MBA. I don’t really know what mark I’ll have on the world, but pursuing the code of life sounds quite exciting to me.
I am not reading any book currently because of my hectic academic life. I plan to read a few more books by the end of the year. Let’s see what happens. Sadly, I would not be able to meet my goal of reading 52 books this year. Who knows, in the future, maybe?
For the greatest fear of death is always that it will pass us by. And leave us there alone. - A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman
“I guess the point I’m trying to make is that as a species we’re just no good at writing obituaries. We don’t know how a man or his achievements will be perceived three generations from now, any more than we know what his great-great-grandchildren will be having for breakfast on a Tuesday in March. Because when Fate hands something down to posterity, it does so behind its back.” - A Gentleman in Moscow, Amor Towles
Changing our habits is challenging for two reasons: (1) we try to change the wrong thing and (2) we try to change our habits in the wrong way. - Atomic Habits, James Clear
Maybe their sorrow over children that never came should have brought the two men closer. But sorrow is unreliable in that way. When people don’t share it there’s a good chance that it will drive them apart instead. - A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman
