Major Conflictions01.23.2013 | Education
I don’t know what it is lately, but I’ve been feeling a little conflicted about my choice of major. It’s not that I don’t like education, I still love it...it’s just that I like a lot of other things too. Maybe I’ve just been feeling like this because I am more than half way done with my college career and the scariness of reality is starting to set in.
After participating in the workshops for personal training, I have realized how much I also enjoy that aspect of a career possibility and sometimes I wonder if I should have went that route with my major. It could also be the fact that the closer I get to finishing my major in education, the more people like to tell me that I won’t get employed or earn a decent living with the job of a teacher. I don’t necessarily believe them, but the idea of my loans coming in and having to pay them off has also become more of a reality.
Anyways, I’m not really worried or extremely doubting anything—there’s a lot I can do with my major if I decide not to teach. And if worst comes to worst, then I’ll just have to go back to school or figure something out. Most importantly, for right now, I just need a degree--I'll figure the rest out as I chug along!
