GRADUATION is soon approaching! In 858 days...122.5 weeks... 20,592 hours... 1,235,520 minutes... 74,131,200 seconds. I have yet again changed my career path. When I applied, I was first for my undergrad I was a nursing major; only because I wanted to become a nurse. Then I began to venture out and explore my interest. Then I became an English major because I read The Fault IN Our Stars. But soon after I caught up with the latest episodes of Law & Order: SVU and I became a pre-law major. I really didn't know what I wanted to do or to be. It wasn't until one day I just woke up and said... "I want to be a pharmacist!" I still ask myself why did wake up with that thought. I felt that changing my major was only making myself more uneasy to what I enjoy. "Nia, it is college! You're not suppose to enjoy! Yes play hard, but also work hard!" My parents said to me after each time of changing my major. I also know, If I want to be successful I will have to a doctor. A doctor in something... but, I didn't want to be a doctor... nor a nurse... so I was like "hey what about a pharmacist?" I stuck with it. I became a chemistry major.
I began to love chemistry. It wasn't has hard as I thought it was. But, As the semester goes on it gets harder and harder. I would say to myself, "shoulda stuck to English, shoulda stuck to English." I start asking myself if becoming a pharmacist is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Why am I taking organic / inorganic chemistry, linguistics, calculus, and stats just to count pills? It just didn't make any sense. Then one day, I was watching Grey's Anatomy with my friend... you already know what happened next. I start researching medical schools, MCAT prep classes, and study the human body. But, I still want to become a pharmacist. I can't be both? So as of today, I am torn between becoming a Pharmacist or a Doctor. I know I would be great in both fields! As a Second year chemistry major with a minor in Microbiology, try I shall decide on something soon!
