No, this isn't some romantic post about a chance I might have missed (let's save that for another one 'cause it's probably going to be lengthy and whiny), but something, *gasp*, school-related.
I honestly didn't choose this path -- I didn't even know I would be majoring in Psychology & Business Management, if you had asked me six years ago. I was dumb enough to have ignored the damn view book when I was a senior in high school so now I'm here. Balancing both Humanities and a Business degree.
Growing up, I always thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life and what career path I would eventually choose. I always wanted to be a lawyer but somehow, I knew I was going to end up managing a business of my own because that was what everyone expected of me. Then college happened.
I shifted two (or maybe three) times till I finally figured out what I wanted. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I WAS CONFUSED, FOR PETE'S SAKE. I had shifted from: Literature & Applied Corporate Management (my original course), to:
- Communication Arts & Applied Corporate Management
- Psychology & Applied Corporate Management
- And finally, Psychology & Business Management
It actually took four Comm-Arts major subjects to make me realize how miserable I was. I mean, I was settling for 2.0s, dammit. So I decided to shift (THREE TIMES) and now I'm here.
I guess, sometimes, I still wonder how my life would have turned out if I had chosen to stay in Comm-Arts. I would always have these thoughts plaguing my mind whenever my friends and I would discuss films (Cinemalaya!) and the media (Yellow Journalism!) or whatnot. But then I realize how contented I am right now with how my life is going (academically)...
So then I think that, maybe, I had made the right decision. Maybe.
