Starting my second year of college has me quite excited, but on top of that, I am getting closer to graduation and having to decide what I want to do with my life. Which, if you know me personally, is a complete struggle, nearly impossible.
In my last post I talked about switching schools to study veterinary. Although I was accepted into the program at a school 2 hours away, I could not afford the extra cost of dorming. So, I had to decline my acceptance for the second time.
I spent my summer taking chemistry and statistics because I changed my major to biology at the end of the spring semester. To get caught up on my classes I took a couple over the summer. As summer ended, I continued to struggle with what I wanted to do and felt utterly hopeless.
I thought of what made me extremely happy, and music came to mind. Later that day I scheduled an audition to get into the music school at my university. I was later notified that I did not get accepted.
Feeling fully discouraged, I considered taking a year off and working full time. I spoke to my advisor and we figured stuff out together. Music and religion are two of my saving graces so we planned out a major that would work for me. A Liberal Arts degree with focuses in both philosophy and music.
My folks were not too happy with this decision seeing as a liberal arts degree won’t be of much use to me in the future. As far as I am concerned, since I don’t know what I want to do, I might as well take classes that interest me instead of make me hate my college experience. I want to at least get something out of this education. I continue to have a minor in english and am looking into picking up a minor in business in the coming semesters.
I love design and the idea of starting a makeup line one day. Business would be helpful for that. I also love music, and working with different parishes.
I am still involved in my school’s newspaper and have just recently joined an a cappella group. So far, classes are going well and I am happy with my choices that have led me here so far.
What the future will bring, well, I don’t know, but I believe it will all work out.
That is the most recent update of my life.
To all of those that don’t know what they want to do yet, it is okay!
Sincerely, Changed my major 3 times.
