Degree Crisis

So every about three days I have this crisis. I ask myself, what am I going to major in? What do I want to do when I graduate? Blah, blah, blah. And then I look at my schedule for the semester. I didn't realize how many "useless" classes I am taking. Maybe useless isn't the term, but maybe not required or not essential to my progression towards graduation. So I am debating several issues at hand here. I have so many things that I would like to study but not nearly enough time. If I do well in my Hum 261 class, which I am loving, by the way, I will most likely do American Studies. But there's a part of me that still wants to do Communications, Spanish, and Non-Profit Management. I love them all so much. Here are some of my current life aspirations.

1. Professor of American Humanities- With emphasis on New England religious culture.
2. Social Worker- Advocacy for Deaf and Spanish speaking people.
3. Journalist- Who doesn't want to edit the opinion page or be an editorial writer for a major newspaper?
4. Publisher- I would love to go into... yep, you got it... Mormon publishing or some form of publishing. I guess under this title would also be bookseller.
5. Lawyer- Despite what I always say, this has always been in the back of my mind. I would, of course, however, not EVER work for a firm. I would prefer to do public defense.
6. A writer- Fiction, non-fiction, whatever.

It's one of those crisis times where I don't know what to do. Luckily I will have two years to think about it. Or avoid thinking about it. I don't know what's best.

This is all well and good, but have you worked out that most important question of t-shirt or hoodie yet? Until you do you shouldn't be wasting time on frivolous thoughts like what to major in! :P

I'm going back to bed for real now. :-)
