finally figured out what I want to study in college... but, in my 3rd semester, I'm found wondering if it's what I want to do as a career, and spend several years studying for. I find myself, once again, considering other fields: human services, nursing, or accounting (for example). They're things I'm interested in, although maybe not to the point of making it a career. But at this point, I figure they might be worth pursuing a career in, even if not my #1 choice.I thought I had |
The major(s) I have currently chosen, International Relations and Sociology, are areas I am very interested in, that deal with issues near and dear to my heart... but is it really for me? I hate writing, especially on deadlines. I hate writing for anyone but me. I'm currently wondering if similar activities I'd be pursuing in careers relating to those majors, aren't better suited for a personal rather than career agenda, at least for me. I feel bad though (almost like a failure), as it's not that I'm not capable of doing the work for the degree, but lately I've started to think these interests are better pursued on a personal level, than an academic or career level.
I'm debating different options for where my life is going. Do I stay in Palm Beach somehow, or move back to Clearwater? Ideally I'd love to go back to California, but that's idealistic wishful thinking at this point in time. I know I still have a desire to pursue some kind of education for a more satisfying and better paying job (at least $30k/yr), but although I have ideas outlined above, I'm obviously far from certain as to what exactly I'll do. I'm not sure what the hell to do with my life right now.
