Yes, I am undecided. No, I do not know what "area I want to focus on" or what I am "leaning toward." I can't even decide what I want from Dunkin Donuts and will consecutively let people in front of me to order. Here are five reasons why it is perfectly okay to be undecided:
1. Half of the people with majors don't know what they're doing. Claiming you're undecided is more realistic.
2. You'll figure it out. STOP worrying. If worse comes to worse, you can always declare a very broad major in a field of interest and work from there.
3. Do not be afraid to declare something. If it turns out to be awful, you can switch. Trying new things may surprise you.
4. Being undecided means you can take any class you want, whether it be an engineering course or business course. From there, you narrow down what you like and what you don't like.
5. If you want to be 100 percent sure what you want, which is fine, that is what college is for. Figuring out your whole life in four years is not set in stone, my friend. Don't let your major rule your life.
I have an idea of what I want my life to look like, and it does not involve a single job for the rest of my life. I look forward to a degree that gives me variety, interest, and happiness, and if being undecided for now is how I'm going to figure that out, then so be it. Knowing this gets me that much closer to what I want.
