 I am a 23 year old college senior majoring in geography. Though I am still a virgin, I have been trying to develop better skills with women for two years now. The process is slow with many hiatuses, but I am still on the path. However, this message is less a question on dealing with women and more on dealing with...life. I will be graduating from college within a few months, and then I will be out in the world trying to make something of myself. What I fear is doing something I hate and/or takes up all the time in my life. I want to experience life, master new skills, explore new hobbies, see the world. 

I've noticed that many people in the seduction community have a background in entrepreneurship and have suggested reading Timothy Ferris's The Four-Hour Work Week. I've read some of it, but my problem is that all the things I'm good at or have an interest in are not very profitable, i.e. video games, geek culture, history, politics, geography. Plus, I have never really seen myself as the entrepreneurial type of guy. My dream job would be to work for National Geographic or something where I could document and/or research human culture, though chances are I will just be working as a map maker.

Anyone have any lifestyle and/or aspiration advice for someone like me who is about to enter the real world?

Anything you find enjoyment in can be used to make money.

There are people making money being geeks, being into video games, history, culture.. etc..

You have to be intuitive enough to find what people want out of those things and then sell something relatve. It can be a physical product, Media or even an E-book you write.

I'm in a similar boat as you OP, except I'm doing something I find no enjoyment in, inside a cubicle that i'm looking to escape. and 25 years young.

I will escape this though.


edit: You're about to graduate and you're worried??? Be stoked for that accomplishment in itself.

have you considered to go bagpacking for some months? this will clearly set your mind straight.

other that that. Relax dude. 23 years old is still young as fuck. You got the whole life infront of you.

maybe this is not your path. I find your interests to be very interesting, so you should focus on what you like to do and already have knowledge about and see you how can use it.

 The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars

The fact you are so concerned and are thinking about this indicates in itself that you will be fine. Keep researching options, see which you could see yourself doing and try them out.
Remember, you don't have to reach your life purpose within 1 year of graduating,  most succesful people didn't start out doing the thing they loved the most immediately, explore what is out there, live the journey, enjoy it all.
