I think I'm going through a quarterlife crisis?

For months on end I've thought this can't be all there is to life. Even though I am on the way to finishing my BA in European Studies with German(which I do in England), it turned dry for me from the beginning of year 2. I am now at the end of year 3 and will finish the BA next June. The language has been tough enough to do, even though I am currently an Erasmus student in Germany. I am tired of the degree already and realise I do not know what MA to choose and that I don't want a dry desk job for the rest of my life. I've always been an active type. I was an acrobat for rhythmic gymnastics when I was younger and would have made championships if I hadn't damaged my ankle. Nevertheless, I continued to dance, to tap dance, salsa, and finally hit gyms every summer after study. I've now been recommended to train with the Les Mills Body Combat program I've been devoted to at my gym in order to eventually be a trainee instructor. This exercise is my passion because it gives me that dangerous thrill, the adrenaline rush, and brings out the fighter in me. I rant on about it with a big smile on my face, to the point of irritating my friends. I'd really like to do something with people, with a team, something active. I am aware of the pressures around me from family etc to find a high-paid desk job, and it would be great to be paid well, but to sit at a desk every day and do something that doesn't fulfil me seems like a nightmare. I know I have qualities such as being a good listener, a great communicator, motivator and enthusiast, problem solver, daring, and very very perceptive. I know my question might look a bit scattered but I hope it can be understood! I'd be grateful for any suggestions. Are there any jobs out there that are well paid but are looking for people with the qualities I listed above? Thank you.

You sound very interesting; However, there is nothing wrong with a desk job. If it works for you then it works for you and if it doesn't then you try something else, right? I believe there are jobs out there that describes the type of job that you are looking for and that fits your qualifications, so no worries... More
