next steps (help?)

I'm stuck. I can't go on with my part time job without some kind of something to look forward to. I want to do more with my life. But as usual, making decisions scares the hell out of me. I need advice. I am willing to listen to just about any hair-brained ideas that come up. I don't know whether or not to pursue graduate education, or in what field. I am very interested in Chines studies, language, culture, women's studies, ect. I have also had a life-long fascination about human sexuality. I think I'd like to spend a year in Beijing area, but I'm also reluctant to leave Boston, the place I've adopted as Home. I am very confused and lost and scared. Suggestions are encouraged!

I'd recommend writing each option down: writing the eventual long-term goal, and what the short term goal is. Then the pros and cons.

Sometimes just seeing all the options, all written out and organized, can make a choice more obviously awesome.
Organ-whatnow?
It's okay - it's much easier to be organized on paper!
It definitely sounds like you're not at all ready to go to grad school.

Probably the best thing to do is see if there are interest groups close to you that you can do volunteer work for. See if that opens or closes any doors for you.
I was thinking the opposite! hehe I found a program I am going to apply for. :-)
