I Changed My Major Mid-Semester And It Was The Best Decision I Have Ever Made

A new chapter, even at a weird time.

I Changed My Major Mid-Semester And It Was The Best Decision I Have Ever Made

I was 13 years old when I decided I wanted to be a nurse.

In all honesty, I thought I was going to be a nurse who got my bachelor's and worked with children who had cancer. Sometimes things change.

Prior to being 13 years old, I always had those unrealistic dreams that every kid had, and then quickly, possibly irrationally, wanted to be a nurse.

My Grandmom got sick at a young age, and she had nurses in and out of the house caring for her, and along the way, I got trained myself. I was 14 years old, and I was doing things that nurses did.

I was super fortunate to have those amazing nurses that trained me and helped me become knowledgeable about her condition.

I decided I would go to a technical school to study Allied Health and further my education and get on the right path. Well, I spent the past four years learning about the human body, HIPPA, medications, drug calculations, and diseases.

I decided I would go to school for nursing, and I did exactly that.

I have always felt in need of a career that could physically help someone out. As life progresses, and things happen I feel like I can potentially help someone out in a different way.

Life has not always shown me the best, and I've seen a lot of people fall ill, and go in and out of hospitals. With all that has happened, it taught me life is too short.

I want to do something fun and full of adventures. Nursing is an amazing way of helping people, but I feel like I can't do that anymore.

I always had it in my mind that I chose my career path when I was young, and I never explored the career options that I could potentially have, so I just stayed on that track.

When I moved down south, it really allowed me to grow and make my own decisions. My family has always been the most supportive group of people in my entire life, but I was always pushed to do nursing, and be the best nurse I can possibly be.

I decided nursing really is not something I want to do anymore... and that's OK!

I changed my major to English, with a minor in journalism. I have always loved writing, and after long consideration, even with endless ideas on what I will do with that, I don't know. I am mainly looking into travel blogging with a bit of communications.

This life is too short to do something you don't want to do.

I thankfully learned it in my first semester of college, rather than a few years into it. I have no idea where life will take me, but I'm okay with going with the flow. I had a plan for the last five years, and now I can just roll with the punches.

I am excited to be living in Florida and have all these opportunities given to me. I am beyond excited to see where the next few years take me.

"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it and join the dance".
