Default What should I do?

Lately, Ive been in a huge rut, and have a hard time making big decisions in my life. I tend to put them off most of the time. But Ill give you a little background into what exactly I'm talking about.

I'm 20 years old and went to college for a year for computer science. At first I was loving it and was so happy to finally be out of my old house. For the first time in a long time I could finally breath fresh air. Though after a few months I became very bord of college. I continued doing research in the computer science field and I didn't like what I saw in my future. The professors there hardly taught any of the material, mainly them just ranting about there problems. I didn't like the idea of me sitting behind a computer for the rest of my life. Besides, the field I was in was turning me into an emotionless computer, much like the other people I was going to class with acted like. It didn't feel like the right area to study.

During that time, I did more research looking at pretty much everything I could think of that interested me. I found something I liked and switched to geology. The next year started up and was super excited for classes to start up again. But financially I couldn't afford to go to school any longer. So, I had to pack up my bags and leave school. It was hard making that transition because I thought I had everything figured out.

When I was home I began doubting that even geology was right for me.

That swift transition taught me that I didn't know what I wanted.

Since I've been home I got a full time job in sales. I got caught up in the working world and completely lost track of what I really love. So in the time I decided to start bodybuilding, while working full time. I've gotten great results in the 6 month span but in still stuck wondering what I should really do.

I've considered joining the airforce, but for some reason I'm almost terrified of joining. I don't know what it is. My parents also think joining will be a good idea, especially because I have no idea what I want to do. I don't want to get myself more into debt without fully knowing what it is I love.

Everything I do points me into the direction of joining the airforce, because they can make me a stronger version of myself and give me a sense of direction.

What should I do???

Option 1:
Join another 4 year school, without know what I want and get myself into more debt.

Option 2:
Join community college, play it safe and get a degree in business.

Option 3:
Join the airforce for a 4 year term.

Let me know what you think I should do?

Sometimes, when hubby asks me similar questions about choosing A or B, I always respond "If I say do B, do you feel instantly drawn to A instead?" Sometimes that can help you decide what it is that you really want to do.

Fear is fine; the other thing is, if you were to go to school and finish up a degree (??) you don't have to use it within the field of study that it covers...I was once told that a degree just proves that a person can study and hit deadlines etc. Bear those points in mind.

Keep your full time job and go to community college for a couple of years to kick out your required subjects. Maybe by then you'll have a better idea of what you want to do, if not you'll at least be farther ahead in your schooling.
