It's Tuesday so you know what that means. Just click on the link to go on over to my post over at Sprocket Ink. Go ahead. Click it! Do it! You know you want to. I dare you. What's a little peer pressure between friends?
Aside from that I've been doing some thinking lately. Yeah, I know, I said I'd try to stop doing that since it always leads to trouble but, what can I say? Bad habits are hard to break.
Anyway, I've been giving some thought these days to the direction my life has been taking.
From this thought came a decision. I've decided to switch majors from IT to journalism. (See? Nothing but trouble, that damned thinking!)
Truth is it's actually something I've been something I've been considering for a long time. I love computers and technology but not enough to see myself as someone who sits and writes code all day.
Journalism was actually my first love. Long ago, I put the idea on the back burner due to different things going on in my life and forgot about it over the years. When I finally decided to get a degree, I wasn't really thinking about the direction I wanted to head in. I decided on IT because I'm a gadget geek and thought it would be a lucrative field to get into.
In the back of my mind, though, I always had doubts and the final nail in the coffin - so to speak - came the other day when I was talking to Mrs. C about making the switch. That was when she said something to me that I didn't expect to hear. She not only agreed that it wasn't a bad idea but she also said that she thought that IT was too restrictive of my personality.
I'll be the first to admit I'm not exactly a wild and free spirit so to be told that something could actually be restricting my personality, that's actually a new one.
With regard to the logistics, switching majors at this point won't cost me more than an extra semester or two so I won't take that much longer to finish. All-in-all, I think I'm doing what's right for me.
Let's just hope I'm not making a colossal ass of myself.
