“I didn't know what I wanted to do.”
Choosing what you want to do for the rest of your life is very intimidating. I remember when I was in school, elementary school even, there were kids — "I want to do this, I want to do that." I really didn't know what I wanted to do. And then in high school I was like, okay this is crunch time. I need to know what I want to do, I'm going to graduate. And I still didn't know what I wanted to do, so I chose community school just to get my generals and explore other options.
It just wowed me that some people, even in high school, were like, I'm going to study this in college and get this degree in college and do this. I commended that. That just wasn't me. I could never sit down and have a plan that distinct. I just wanted to look at my options and try to feel out what was best for me. And they say you change your major three times. So some of my friends have changed majors multiple times. They've got a school that they've put those years in, and the money in, and then they can't use that degree, or those credits don't transfer towards the degree they want.
So my biggest thing is, to somebody that doesn't know what they want to do, is to just go to a community school and just take your generals. If you have a major you want to do, take some classes specific towards the major, but don't put all your time and effort into it if you're not 100 percent sure you want to pursue that career.
