I wish I knew what I wanted to do as a career when I first started college. I feel as though I wasted so much time “exploring” and now I’m on the edge. I am still waiting to hear back a second time from the Human Service Department about whether or not I got in after being reconsidered.
This quarter I’m taking a health education class and I’m starting to second guess my degree choice. Maybe I should have stuck with biology or went for a pre-med to then go on to medical school. Maybe that should have been the ideal career path for me. But now it’s too late. I’m already a junior, I’m not in a major, and I’m most likely going to be a 5th year senior. I don’t even know how I’m going to pay for all of this.
Why does society expect us to graduate high school, go to college and immediately know what we want to do with our lives. I’m 21 and I still have no idea what I want to do. Sure, I have a general idea, but there are so many options.
