Yes, I know but just hear me out.
I know. My brain thinks a little different sometimes. (my boyfriend probably rolled his eyes at this post because he knows what's to come ha) With the kinda exception of doctor or lawyer or anything like that, I really believe that your major doesn't matter. Your degree does, at least that's the case here in the states. Let me explain.
Your major doesn't define what you do. That's what I believe. I think that thinking your major defines what life means to you limits you. Just like getting your major doesn't guarantee a job in that field. I think the flexibility lets people try out more in life and widens your opportunities! Why do I think this? Well my parents' majors had nothing to do with what they do now. That's how I grew up. Your major doesn't define you. What you do in life does.
Why think this way? RELEASE FROM PRESSURE. College kids (and high school kids, I see you) are so rushed to figure out what they do in life. I've met so many stressed and ashamed people who have not figured out what they are going to major in. They think that this decision will make or break them. But in reality, the decision doesn't make you, your actions do. There's so many choices. There's so many opportunities. So my advice is to pick a major you're interested in or one that you feel comfortable in. Don't like it? Change it. Everything is going to be fine in the end.
The right opportunity will find you if you are open. It found my parents. Blogging found me. How does this view help me benefit from life? Well, I'm a Management Information Systems major and I'm picking a minor. Thinking marketing now. I've picked a very office-y driven major but I'm not going to let that hold my spirit for creativity down. I do love computers and business. But I love writing and creating as well. So my major doesn't necessarily matter. I'm big on freedom and defying the definition of things. Especially people in my age group. Major doesn't matter right now. No stress. Chill. :)
I'd love to know your opinion on this frame of thought I have! For or against? :)
