I'm 27 too, I spent about 8 years in and out of college, and just landed my first professional offers. My only advice is to pick something bearable and just stick with it. "Following your passion" is a fairy tale for a lot of people. Just pick something, do some research on whether it can pay you enough to cover your lifestyle and has some upwards mobility, and just do it. Use the weekends to try out making craft goods or writing a book or whatever in the hopes you stumble into something you love, after you get a 9-5 or something that lets you live with some security and contentment.Man, a lot more folk in their 30's and 40's than I expected in this thread.
I'm 27 and I still can't work out any career/job direction that's above the retail level. Been trying to figure something out for a decade and I've got nothing. I've got no dreams or aspirations whatsoever
Like, very few people, I think, are all that passionate about plumbing. But shit man, it'll pay your bills a lot better than retail.
