Hey guys! Welcome back. I wanted to take this opportunity to speak to all of my confused friends as I too am confused. Let’s get through this together!

When I was younger I always knew what I wanted to do. When I grew up I wanted to go to college and become a teacher. However, as I got older the plan got a few bumps. There were some road blocks and I was never sure what to do. Teaching was the only thing I ever wanted to do, so even when I began exploring other options it was always there in the back of my mind.

When I started college I was an education major. Half way through my first semester I changed it to Writing and Communication. And then at the end of my second semester I changed it back to Education. Then I transferred schools. At that point I started taking Education classes. And I realized that it just wasn’t for me. I didn’t want to go through all the things Education majors have to go through to get nothing in return. So I decided again to change my major. The problem is, I still wanted to teach. But how could I do that without being an Education major? The answer was to become a college professor. Sure that takes more schooling, but I love teaching and college, so it seems like the perfect fit.

All this time I have been confused. I don’t know where I’m going or how I am going to get there. All I know is that I am going as far as I can. It’s hard now, but one day it will all be worth it. If you are in the same situation just know that you are far from alone. Many college students are feeling the same way you are. Whether you are just starting out in college or you’re been here for a while, college is tricky. It’s the first real decision most of us get to make on our own and ironically it effects the rest of our lives. You’re not alone. Just keep going and I promise you will figure it out.

Thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Comment your thoughts below. Also, let me know any requests or ideas you have for me on things to post. I love your suggestions! Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
