I'm just sitting at school. I have a break before my next class. :]
Here's the big news:
I CHANGED MY MAJOR!
Yes, that is right. Starting next semester, I will no longer be attending the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Sad, I know. It was a great opportunity and a fabulous honor to be accepted.
So why am I changing?
Well, I realized that i'm not sure that journalism is the thing for me. Perhaps it still is. And with my new major I could still go into journalism. But none of the journalism classes interest me. I found myself bored and dreading school...which really isn't like me. I'm a freak and normally love school! I was being pressured into joining clubs and programs, but the problem was I didn't want to be in any of them. Furthermore, I don't want a strict career. I want a family. Yes, I believe getting an education is important. Very important. And I want to have a degree so that I can work if need be, to help bring in some extra cash. But first and foremost I want to be a mother. One who spends lots of time with her kids. It's hard to balance being a journalist and a mother.
I feel really good about my decision and I am extremely excited about my new major...creative writing with a minor in psychology. I talked with the creative writing academic advisor yesterday for almost an hour and i'm so happy. Now I will be at Tempe campus, which is an added bonus. So, that's that. I figured I would share.
Have a great day!!
P.S. --- As I was writing this, I had a tender mercy of the Lord I thought i'd share with you all. So i'm sitting in the school library and there is this guy sitting at the computer across from me, his back turned to me. He's swaying back and forth so he caught my attention..."Why is he swaying?" I don't know. I carry on with my blog and look over...he's gone but his computer is still on his page. "Where is he?" Suddenly I hear something hit a wall. And again. And again. He's blind. And he's trying to find his way back to his computer. He has a giant smile on his face. He found his computer and put his i-pod back in and started swaying again. So that's why he was swaying. He's so happy. And he has such a hard life. I should be more like that. He made my day. Little does he know...he just taught someone a huge lesson today and made a difference in someone's life. So thanks, blind guy.
