Start reading everything -- beginning with ancient Egypt, then over to the Indian Vedas and Upanishads, then move on to the pre-Socratics, then to Plato/Aristotle, all the way through the history of the Western world up to Zizek.

Then take a break, you'll deserve it.

Don't believe what careers advisors tell you, you can have a perfectly good life outside all those scary structures (career, mortgage, marriage) if you want. But if you opt out of those things, you have to learn how to "find your own problem", structure your own time and get your own work done.
