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.
I kinda just wanted to play videogames. Then I realised that I might die of hunger unless I had a job.
Now I'm going to try and help make video games instead, using Multimedia Design as a procrastination device until I get good at the arts.
Oh sure, there was other stuff, but childhood aspirations are stupid.
I'm not really the ambitious sort.
When I was a little kid, my dream job was to be a world famous author. It was simply something I always had on my mind. Now that I have grown up, I think my dream would be a psychologist or therapist, something which I am the most likely to become regarding what's been happening with me lately. I hope I at least manage to get more than what I am currently doing which is just me being a dishwasher.

When I was a kid I watched cartoons all the fucking time, specifically The Simpsons, and I always aspired to work in that area somehow, like a voice actor or an animator. Then that idea sort of just drifted away and I took a more keen interest in computers. Now I've realized that working with computers is boring as shit and I aspire to do something maths or physics related at university.
What could be better than studying the very language and mechanics of the universe? Science is awesome.
i too had wished to become an astronaut. and a soldier. and a rock star. and a professional baseball player. all of these i have discarded to pursue what my heart is set on.
i wish to pursue a major in music and medicine. i realize i do not enjoy seeing others in pain, injury or illness. perhaps i am an insane, but it is my dream to heal with both music and medicine.
THIS WORLD IS MADE OF LOVE AND PEACE!
I used to want to be a power ranger. But now I'm studying medicine. 4 years in, 3 to go.
