How do I tell people I'm not going to work in an office?

I am almost done with college. Since I've started, four separate times I've taken a semester off to study abroad, work overseas or do unorthodox things in the name of adventure. I've come to terms with myself and I know that this is I want out of life, and I know that when I graduate I'm not going to get a steady job with benefits or any of those other things that responsible people are supposed to do. How do I explain this to the people I care about in a way that makes them feel good about me? [more inside]

Can anyone share examples of how to convince employers you are qualified for something different? [more inside]

Master's Degree in Urban Planning for a JD: now, later, or never?

Master's Degree in Urban Planning: now, later, or never? I'm in my third year of law school, and I've realized (after taking on a pile of debt) that I don't really want to practice law. I think urban planning is the right field for me. Should I rush to get applications in now to start a program next fall, or should I enter the workplace and try to apply next year? Or should I skip the urban planning degree and start applying for planning jobs with my JD? [more inside]

Everyone says this is a good problem to have, and I know it is, but it's KILLING ME!

Help me choose between two totally different jobs, my brain is going to explode! Even worse, perhans I'm an odd person, but I'm going to feel terrible telling either of these companies "No" and it's stressing me out a lot. I hate disappointing people. This emotional aspect is making it really hard for me to just quit stressing and think clearly about which makes more sense. [more inside]

Can't we negotiate?

After only a week or so of job search, I've been offered a software development position at a little startup that does almost exactly what I want to do. Seriously, I cannot imagine a more ideal group to work for. I'm supposed to contact them next week to discuss terms and salary. However, during the interview, some of the statements seemed to imply that they didn't have the budget to satisfy my requested salary. I really want to work for these folks, but don't want to sell myself short. Can you think of creative suggestions I might make during negotiations to make up the difference? [more inside]
