College is a hard time for students who just turned to be adults. Every student has the idea that they have to have a set major when they enter college. In high school when you pick a major and a school, you have the mindset that you can never change that major. You have to complete what you started. When we pick a school and major in high school, most of us have experienced so little in the field of interest, while others have had some experience. In high school we are young and naïve and we enter college with such a narrow mind set.
For me, I had the mind set that I wanted to be an English and Special Education teacher. That was my dream for so many years. I had been taking education classes for two years and I was content. That's the thing. I was content. I wasn't happy in those classes. I was just going to class to pass. I didn't care about teaching anymore. After realizing that I didn't want to teach, I am changing my major.
Because I had two years of college under my belt, I learned a lot about myself, and I will always be learning new things about myself.
What I realized by changing my major is that it's okay to change your major. It's okay to realize something that you used to be passionate about, is something that you are now not passionate about. People change every day, and that's okay.
So don't panic about changing your major, don't have the mind set that everyone is judging you, because they are not. Don't worry about if you change your major, that you won't graduate on time. As long as you graduate. Focus on you and what you love.
