    You've just made a lot of people very happy. Sleep well.

    I went to a recuitment thingy for L'Oreal, got blatantly rejected ("Well, you know, there are a lot of people who apply here... have you done BrandStorm? [big marketing competition sponsored by them]... ah well, that's too bad, you should try it out next year, we get most of our interns from there"), have done two straight case presentations, have answered a whole lot of questions whose sole purposes were to destroy my reasoning in said presentations, have sent a ton of internship applications to random places.

    All my life, I was always certain of what was going to happen to me. High school, college, university, I knew where I wanted to go well i advance and I always got there. Now, in a year and 4 months, I will start working god knows where doing god knows what, and the uncertainty is killing me. I have a very low treshold for uncertainty, it seems. I know I want to work in marketing, I just don't like not being in control of where I'm gonna work. Worst of all, I've also got Peter fucking Pan syndrome, I don't want to become an adult and start bearing with the reponsibilities. My girlfriend talks about kids and I have no idea where I stand on that. She talks about future plans and I can't seem to formulate anything due to me not wanting to think about the future just yet. But even if I don't think about it, it's still right around the corner.

    Help.

    I can only address one of those points. I believe many of the ills in the world are caused by people having kids and not knowing whether or not they want them. wait and make up your mind.

    @roque: If I had waited and made up my mind, I'd have never met my delightful little Beast... Having a child defies all conventional wisdom (the increased expense, the loss of sleep, the fact that for the first few months your clothes will be covered in all manner of vomitus and excreta...), so you really can't take a logical tack.

    @david bedard: Find a job you're happy with first. Then think about children. It's like an elephant sandwich...
