Maybe you're searching for that end-all-be-all lover?
Counting the days until your friend or SO ends your relationship?
Perhaps you're waiting for the stars to align and you'll figure out your career?
For school to finally end?
Looking for that jolt of inspiration or motivation to ____________?
Could it be you're just finding a purpose?
Waiting to be needed by someone or anyone?
Craving to be noticed or feeling accomplished?

Maybe all of the above or something else entirely.

Presently, what are you waiting for OR looking for? Take it in any angle you wish.

Is there something you're looking for that prompted you to ask this question, or did you post it because you were curious about the discussion?

One time I was walking through campus, when I heard someone pass a friend and ask, “Who are you walking to?”
And that was such an interesting thing to ask because most people only ask where others are going. It seemed right though—the assumption that we’re walking to someone—always.
And I don't want that to be the answer, but I'm afraid that it might be. I don't want to look for someone.

I'll say I'm living presently and not waiting or looking for anything but stepping in the direction that will move me towards...creating something that will make me feel whole. Individually

I'm waiting for school to be over. Once testing season hits, everyone gets antsy, teachers included.

I'm looking forward to the summer. I've got a continuing education class that I think I'm really going to enjoy.

And I'm going to start some sort of side business. I've had the itch for a few months to start something. I did odds and ends when I was a broke college student, desperate for any kind of income. I'd like to make a more focused and concerted effort and see what comes of it. I'm fascinated by the organization and economics of various ventures.

I've spent the last few weeks tossing around ideas with my ENTJ hubby, and I'm ready to try it out myself. Even if I fail, I think it will be valuable life experience. But I'm hoping I succeed!

Hmmm... I guess I'm looking for the perfect pizza.
It has to have a nice fluffy crust, good cheese and use sauce made from fresh tomatoes. The toppings would have to include black olives, perhaps some beef and maybe bell peppers of the red and yellow variety after it has been grilled properly.

Also, the Pizza must be cooked in a stone oven. Perhaps throw in some crushed dried non-irradiated chilies.

Socio-economic collapse and the resulting post-apocalyptic wasteland in which I will rule all I survey with an iron fist.

If you're a teacher then perhaps the easiest business for you to get into is tutoring?

I relate to your experience in tertiary education. I've gotten by doing odd jobs here and there for the last couple of years but unfortunately due to universities wising up a little, my main skill that I use to make some ends, is no longer an option.

Thanks for the suggestion! I perhaps should have been clearer, I'm not really looking for the most lucrative side job (because let's face it, my most marketable skills are in education). The teaching summer school/grading tests/tutoring option would do quite nicely. But I truly value having a break from the education world for a few months, especially in regards to maintaining my sanity, haha! I'd like to use a business to increase my knowledge in something I don't have experience in.

In the last year, I've helped part out 2 cars (because my niece has a knack for totaling cars, and Subaru parts do sell for decent money). While that isn't the exact tack I want to take, I do think the idea of flipping things to make a profit is fascinating. I think keeping so many pieces in the air, juggling inventory/profit margins/advertising/etc. is a good way to stretch my skillset.

Sure but tutoring is a little different from teaching, right? You can go one-on-one and I think that would be different and interesting, especially if your pupil has some passion for and aptitude in what you're tutoring them about.

I get what you mean by wanting to branch out, though.

My biggest concern is waiting for this upcoming 4 month transition period to be over with where I have somewhere to live and hopefully a steady job. I'm waiting for God, or the universe, or whatever you believe in to be an advocate. Not a counselor, but something or puts someone in my life who inspires me on a day-to-day basis. I simply do not have a mentor, someone I look up to, or a (tangible) goal in my life right now, and it can be pretty distressing. I once read somewhere that those who had a mentor or someone who they really looked up to during a good chunk of their lives went on to live very fulfilling lives. Interesting imo..

tl;dr I guess you could call it flow :)

I just got out of a long term relationship with someone I love (and still do). But I need a lot of time to myself now, and it's something I cannot return to at present time.

I don't know what exactly I'm looking for. I'm looking forward to the future. I also wish to see how all these memories or recent heartbreak plays out.

I'm looking for hope in all types of ways, optimism, and simply finding how to cherish, accept, and leave the past behind.

I want to meet new and good friends. I had to walk away from people that were no longer in my best interest.

I want the right life partner too, but I know it's not the time for a relationship. A support system of good friends comes first. Choosing bad friends means that you will be prone to choosing the bad partner.

Other than that, I'm pretty happy. I got a nice job, and can't complain!

A career that lets me use my strengths and skills to provide unique value for others in a way that allows me to be creatively fulfilled, live the autonomous and adventurous lifestyle I crave, challenges me intellectually and provides substantial income in return.

It's a fuck of a tall order. But I give no fucks.
