You may have noticed a kissy faic. It has nothing to do with the thread. I just love you.
Now then, what is your current major, and what was it before? I'm interested in what NG wants to do with their lives, and what made them want to do it. How did your career interests evolve? This goes for College students as well as High School students. Tell us your story of career mind changes, and what made you make those changes. Also be sure to explain your current choice. Mine is below, if you wanted an example.
When I was younger, I of course wanted to be an astronaut, a firefighter, etc. But then I started watching those crime shows, and decided I wanted to be a CSI. That lasted until about 6th grade, when I realized that 1) I was shitty at science and 2) That I didn't have that kind of patience. All the shows made it seem so easy...
After that, I really didn't have any idea. I sort of drifted through school, trying to find something that I loved, and I found music. I planned on playing in a band for a while, but soon discovered that I had a case of stage fright that made all the shows I played at terrifying experiences. I got over it, but by that time I realized that my goal was unrealistic.
Finally, I settled on psychology. I couldn't tell you why I hit on this. I just discovered somehow that the human mind is an endless enigma. It's not like math, where I have a formula to solve. It's a science, sure. But it's not quite so boring and mundane. I don't know... I really liked the idea. But I soon realized it was more of a lab science, and I really didn't want that. I wanted to interact with people, not numbers.
So I'm now going to school to be a trauma counselor. Either for the military, helping veterans, for a police force, helping crime victims, or for a nonprofit organisation, helping victims of natural disasters.
Ready, set, go.
