I have the experience to talk about this. It’s crazy because I was told that people change their majors all the time. I was always the one saying that I will never change my major. I stuck to my word until one day I got fed up with my constant whining, bad grades, not comprehending, complaining, and crying. It takes all that to know what you really want (lol). It hit me last semester that biology is probably the wrong major for me. I wanted to be a doctor because I wanted to help people. That’s the one sentence that every doctor hate hearing because it’s so basic. I never had a “B” in biology which is unacceptable in medical school. Nothing stuck to my head and I could tell I wasn’t enjoying it. Do you know how? Because I said I wasn’t enjoying it. I honestly think I was just doing it because of how much doctors make but what’s the point if your grades won’t let you get there.
The one thing I always talk about is life. I talk about it, read about it, blog about, and cry about, so I wanted to look for a major that focuses on the aspects of life. I like to learn about different cultures and the history of the world. I am obsessed with it. My family can tell you because I get on their nerves talking about it but to be honest, they get on my nerves because they don’t talk about it. I just wish I can be in a world with people who think like me. That sounded so cocky but for some reason I am sticking to it (lol). That is why I chose to change my major to “Anthropology”. The good thing about this major is that I can also work in “Archaeology“. I am exciting talking about this right now. I can talk all day about this class. It’s my favorite class that I have ever taken. I love debating and talking with my new favorite professor who looks like Dumbledore. He has so much wisdom about the world. I don’t even care about the money anymore, I just want to travel and learn about this world we live in. Everything I have said explains the difference between loving and hating a major.
It’s not worth wasting your money on something you hate or something you won’t use in the future. In that case, go get a normal job. If you hate your major, maybe you need to take time to find what you really love. You might have loved something back then but times are changing and so are you. A sign that you are unfit for your major is bad grades, complaining, anger, and saying you hate your professor. Maybe it’s not the professor but it’s just you putting the blame on your professor. Don’t waste your money on something you don’t love. Life is too short.
