When I was in college on the East Coast, I was surrounded by people who knew what they exactly wanted to do in their careers.
I'd always go to the beach during Christmas break, rain or shine. It was (and still is) my place of refuge where I could just be. I didn't have to "accomplish" something.
The beach allowed me to slow down and be okay with not knowing all the answers. I didn't have to present myself in a certain light as someone with everything "together".
