I like school. It’s no secret that when I’m in a classroom, participating and learning, I’m happier than a pig in filth. In more recent semesters I’ve turned to online-classes because they’re more convenient to schedule around jobs. I was still happy to be learning and exercising my brain, but I miss the literal classroom experience.
I’m planning to continue taking online-classes once this baby is out of me and a couple months old, and I’ve also decided to change my educational direction. Up until a few weeks ago I planned to finish my Bachelor’s in Accounting and leave it at that. I’d become a CPA and hope to get into a good corporate accounting position. What am I planning now? Well I still plan to finish my Bachelor’s in Business, but now I’m expanding my plans to include grad school and a Master’s in Library Information Science. I’m gonna be a librarian, bitchez!
This is not the first time I’ve changed my college plans. I’ve majored in Education, Pharmacology, Business and Liberal Studies, and am now returning to Business for my Undergrad studies.
Has anyone ever been happy with their first major? Did you change majors a lot in college? What did you focus on? How did you decide which one to stick with?
And for parents who continued school post-children: Am I an idiot for planning this so soon after a baby? How did you survive?
