Do Not Judge My Major

I am just as equal as you.

Do Not Judge My Major

College majors: there are so many to pick from that most of us get overwhelmed with the choices we need to make. Some of us know, some of us don't. I was in the big bulk of people who had no damn clue what I wanted to do with my life. I came to terms with that and I was okay because when I found my major, and I came to love it more than I could imagine.

A few days ago, someone made a comment to me. They said "Oh you're just a psychology major; that's nothing, that's easy." I was complelty and utterly offended by this statement for many reasons. I struggled with deciding on what I was going to do five to ten or more years from now. When I finally made a decision, it was the greatest feeling ever. So, to say my major was "nothing" was pretty rude.

We are all different. We all have different interests. Hence, the variety of different majors one can pick from. It's hard to pick a major. Many people change their major multiple times before finding the right one. Just because I'm not going to medical school does not mean I am lesser than that person who is. I will have just as much as an opportunity to succeed as the next doctor will of our generation. I will be just as happy as them.

We all have the right to make our own choices that will benefit us the most in the long run. To question and judge that is not fair. I love psychology. I love learning about how humans think, develop and go through the stages of life. I love to help people and figuring out how they think and how to fix problem is enjoyable for me.

I have chosen the right major for me and I fully believe that in my heart. Everyone can't all want to do the same things in life and that is why there are so many opportunities for us today. We have options for a reason, so I hate when people will judge me for making a one hard choice out of millions.

I think the main idea here is that we all made that choice when we entered college. Sometimes, it is easy for us but most of the time it is not. My father knew he wanted to be a dentist since he was a little boy and that is exactly what he grew up to be. Unlike him, I needed a little time and exploring to figure it out.

Support is very important for people who struggle with anything. My struggle happened to be with my choice of major and to be pushed down like that was not a great feeling. I just wanted a little support. And I know that really isn't a lot to ask for.

I will indeed graduate from my four year university with a degree I can be proud of, a sense of accomplishment and a smile on my face. And that is all that matters.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
