It’s come to my attention that I need to pick an ambition and run with it. I enjoy so many subjects in school and I like the idea of many professions, so it’s difficult to decide. It’s a little embarrassing to mark myself as “undecided”, but at the same time, such a huge decision is difficult.
Some of the things I’m interested in?
Teaching. I love working with children (people in general, really) and I have a lot of experience with it. When I was younger I always thought it was something I’d end up doing. However, upon getting this new teaching job and furthering my education in it, it has lost its luster to me. Perhaps it’s just a phase. Any teachers want to share their experience in their decision to become a teacher?
Dietetics. I love cooking and learning about nutrition. Yes, my knowledge of it began at a horrid place in life, but it evolved into a fascination with the science of how our bodies work. My only reservations was that the job would be kind of boring, after reading about what dietitians do. Dietitians, what’s the most exciting part of your job or what do you most enjoy about it?
Physical Therapy. I love the idea of working with people all day and helping them better their health! I’ve read a lot about physical therapists and again, I’m insanely interested in anatomy and other similar subjects. My only reservation about this career was the schooling. I’m so eager to get out of school right now and I’ve only been in college for 2 years. I couldn’t imagine 6 years of intensive schooling. What is PT school like and how did you get through it? What is a day in your life like?
I love travelling and of course, writing, but I wasn’t sure what, if anything, I could honestly pursue with that. It’s been a dream of mine to be an author but I figured that could be sort of a “side thing” in my life.
What do you think? What is your major/career and why? How did you come to that decision?
