Back to the topic of "What do you want to do for the rest of your life." UGH it is so SUPER stressful for me. I mean, I know what I love to do and what my one huge career life dream is but I talk myself out of it time and time again. The voices in my head say, "No you can't do that" or "Nope it's never going to happen" or "You will be so broke that you will live at home forever."(yikes) Anyways as I was looking over my classes next semester I finally made the decision to change my major, once again. When I started college I was an Interior Design Major. Well, I somehow ended up not taking any interior design classes and was in Fashion Merchandising instead. It was fun, thoughts of living in New York and working for some fancy smancy designer sounds all fun, but not something I wanted to spend THE REST of my life doing. So it then changed to Childlife Specialist..took a few basic classes, then decided I wasn't going to attend Alabama anymore. Along with a school change came a major change. I was a Family and Consumer Sciences secondary education major. Now, all of these things interest me, but again not what I want to spend my remaining years doing. So, today, I made the decision and emailed my advisor. I am just going for it and my major is going to be Culinary Arts. It's my one true passion and I am not going to shove it aside any longer. So here goes to another Major change and lets hope this one sticks. I only need 39 more hours to have that degree which is MUCH more appealing than the 88 needed for Family and Consumer Sciences. I know God has an incredible plan for me and I am SO excited to see where this leads me in life. Though sometimes I wish God could mail us a package with all of our life instructions.
