i’ve mentioned before how much of an indecisive person i am. it’s a bit ridiculous at times. so when it came to choosing a major in school, you can only bet this didn’t come easy. in fact, three years ago i wrote a series about it.
growing up i never had that “one thing” i just knew i wanted to be, like a teacher or a doctor. i had interests in things, but never knew what i would want my future career to be. i think part of the reason behind this is because from a young age i just knew i wanted to be a mom when i was older.
i’ve loved kids since such a young age. with my cousin years ago :)
i still want to be a mom, but of course you kind of need to get married before that happens and i am no where near ready for that. someday hopefully though. so where does this leave me with school?
for the past two-ish years at school, my major was Fitness Management/Personal Training. i chose this major because i enjoy working out and have thought on multiple occasions about becoming a personal trainer someday.
i really liked this major when i started, but then i started to lose interest. i realize you don’t have to go to college to become a certified personal trainer and since i don’t have any plans to open my own gym i felt like i was just wasting time (and money).
this left me just more confused and frustrated. i didn’t like my major but there wasn’t anything else that interested me. you don’t know how lucky you are if you’ve known from a young age what you’ve always wanted to do. i envy you ;)
so, long story
short long, school starts back up next Monday. for a little while i contemplated not even going back and taking a break. but i knew deep down that’s not what i wanted. i knew i just wanted to get school over with and get a degree; any degree. so this is why i made the decision to switch my major to General Studies.
with this i have so many options of classes to take, with only a few guidelines. if i’m interested in what i’m learning about i hope to enjoy school that much more. technically i should be graduating this year (which is crazy to think about) but since i’ve only gone part time for the past few semesters, i’m still a junior credit-wise.
if i take 15 credit hours each semester (not counting summer) then i can, God willing, graduate in spring 2016. having a finish line in sight is what’s pushing me to finish. i can do this. and i’ll feel so, so much relief when i do<3
did you always know what you wanted to have a career in?
how many (if any) times did you change your major in college?
