Every Step of the Way

Since switching my major last year, a question I have often been asked is; do you regret it? And if I was to answer honestly, no I don’t. When questioning my major last year, this is something I’d worry about. Would I miss it? What if I don’t like this new major? What if I change my mind again. These are thoughts that racked my mind while I tried to determine what would be the best decision for myself. Changing majors was the right decision. Last year I always felt self-conscious about my work and dreaded going to class. I was never excited or invested as some of my other classmates.

When people ask me why I switched, the answer was as simple as I wasn’t happy. A phrase I was once told, “If you have a job you love, you’ll never work another day in your life”, was my guiding light in deciding my next step. I didn’t love what I was doing, so that was my sign that I needed to change. I know what I do love doing, so I looked for something that reflected this.

Journalism. I love writing, taking photos, and reaching out to other people. I love the strong creative outlet and the process of investing your time into an assignment. Since switching, I’VE BEEN HAPPY. Each new thing I learn about writing or blogging gets me excited. I’m excited to go to all my classes and love conversing with my professors. I leave class smiling, no longer dreading my assignments. When I think back on, I can truly say that switching majors was probably one of the best decisions I ever made.

I’m sorry the long post, but it’s something I’ve had on my mind for awhile. Its something that affects my blog so that’s why I decided it was something important to share with you.
