The Point Of It All

You know what I want to do? Travel. Take pictures. Write stories. Be adventurous.

You know what I don't want to do? Go to school. Do homework.

I'm so tired of school. My grades aren't as good as they should be. My GPA isn't high enough. I just completed 13 years of public school, I'm almost done with my first year of college and I'm realizing more and more with each day how much I hate it here.

Don't get me wrong, I like being out of the house. I like the atmosphere. I like living in the dorms. I like the people that I've met at school. What I hate is the essays, the homework, the projects. Being stuck in an older version of high school that requires more of me than I was prepared to give.

I just wonder if I'm really in the right major. I don't want to change my major 80 times like some people do, but right now, I'm seriously considering if changing my major would be a good idea. *sighs*

I have so many areas of interest. And it seems like I picked the most difficult one. I mean sure, they're all going ot have some level of difficulty. And if I leave nutrition behind, then that will open up another arena of my life with its own difficulties and annoyances. I don't really know if switching anything would make a huge difference, but I suppose it could be worth a shot?

I don't know for sure. All I am doing right now is considering. I haven't taken any steps one way or the other. So we'll see what happens. But I know that I have writing talent - I've been told often enough by more than one person. And I don't say that to be cocky, I promise. I would like to think that I have an eye for photography - and Lord knows that I enjoy it well enough. I just wonder what the job market is like for these. Or if I wanted to become a translator and learn to speak a thousand different languages. :-) Okay, okay, not a thousand, but a few would be nice.

But like I said. It's just thoughts. And I'm still sitting here wondering what the point of it all is...


  1. Awww. I think what you're going through is SO COMMON - which is why everybody changes their majors 80 times. :) All of my kids went through this in their first year of college - two of them did change their majors and the other has stuck it out. Why? Because he LOVES his major (writing and communications). Go with what you love or what really interests you and you will be okay. I made the mistake of going where I thought the money would be and was miserable in every single job I ever had. Hang in will all work out.

    Wow, kind of long for a comment, eh? And all I really meant to do was to drop by and welcome you to SITS!

  2. Well, as someone who didn't choose their career wisely, I'm just saying you owe it to yourself to really give it much thought. I'm thankful for my job because it's fairly secure, but it's not something I enjoy. Anyway, just stopping by to welcome you to the SITS community :)

  3. looks like you have a lot of talents, so stick with it...or you'll be like me in my middle age regretting I didn't pick a different major and thinking of going back to college for another degree!

    But now that you bring up all those projects and hours of homework.... ;-)
