Q:How can I figure out what I really want to do with my life after college?

毕业后,如何才能知道自己真正想做什么?
So I graduated from college a few month ago and landed a job in software development… it's not bad, it coincided with my computer engineering degree, and so that was good to get a job right out of college….

But Idk, it just seems like it's not something I want to do for the rest of my life….. I mean it's not like slavery or anything, but I just don't find it thrilling anymore…. I mean I used to code for fun and do pure mathematics for fun by myself…. I guess coding 8 hours straight a day really sucks it out of you.

Recently I've been looking at other fields, like psychology, sociology, leadership, education, or politics (more notably the life-path of Barack Obama as inspiration), not really in the commercial aspects of things for material gain or "ooo look at me I make 100k/year".

Ik I'm in my early twenties and all…. but I'm just feeling like after I graduated, I feel like I'm doing something that I might not wanna do anymore, but I really don't know what to do anymore with my life. It's definitely not the long-commute 9-5 in a cubicle, but it seems like college prepped me for a life track thats hard to get off after getting a degree, and I don't know where to start to reconcile this.

Any answers/advice (for me or for others wanting similar answers to similar problems) is greatly appreciated.
