Yes, an Introvert in an Extroverted Major

Yes, I'm An Introverted Communications Major — And I Love It
Warner Brothers

I cannot believe it either, but it is safe to say I am a Communications major finishing my second year, specifically a New Media and Communication Technology Major. Like many others I have had a hard time selecting a major, trying to find something that really spoke to me and just stuck.

Yet, I know that by taking communications as my major, my route after college would lead me to many open paths, not just a strict one-way path that may not take me anywhere.

All I can think about though is how shy and introverted I am, yes, once I get comfortable in a certain situation I can open up. I hate presentations or speeches in front of crowds, but I am like that weird personality type where I am introverted, but can be extroverted if I would like to be; if that makes any sense at all.

I have come to realize how much I love my major, all of the fascinating things I have come to learn thus far.

My major consists of many aspects from psychology, sociology, English, and technology, studying behind the minds of various groups while trying to influence them.

I have for sure locked down my major, but cannot decide what minor to do.

Do I go for geography where I could focus on sustainability, do I go for art because I could expand and enhance those skills, or do I do film studies where I could focus on the background of television as well as the computer screen.

Now that's a totally other aspect, yet you may be wondering, Madison if you are an introverted personality type, then why are you studying communications?

Well I can tell you, that this major consists of almost every aspect I was interested in to begin with; that psychology and sociology aspect. But as someone who is as shy as I am, it is trying to enhance my skills in public speaking.

I have never been someone that has done well in public speaking. I am using this time to better myself so I am not restricting my skill set.

That is also why I want to pursue a minor, to bring in another topic of interest. Why not bring all of my interests together, right.

I am pursuing a path where I can enhance my skills and interests, while at the same time changing those introverted characteristics.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
