Hmm, I don't know if anyone reads this anymore but I'll post away in it just in case.

So what have I been up to lately? I declared my major recently, but only because I had to and not because some divine knowledge came upon me. I went with printmaking. I do love printmaking, and I know I want to take more classes in it and get to know the department better, I'm just not sure if I'm passionate enough to commit what could be the rest of my career to it! I'm also considering getting a minor in Gender Studies, but I don't want to commit to that either when I still want to have my options open to explore other things I'm interested in and potential majors. I'm sort of expecting everything to fall into place at some point, but I hope it doesn't just end with me passively moving through these four years and still not knowing what I want when I graduate.

These last few months of foundation year all seem kind of pointless in comparison right now. I just want to finish up all these classes I don't really care about and move on to the stuff I know I want to do. I guess they're still teaching me important stuff or whatever but it just seems so tedious.

But anyway, I'm still on spring break for a few days so I don't have to worry about that.

A major is what you make of it. And it's ok to change your mind. Think of it as learning a valuable skill set, not necessarily committing your entire career. I majored in comparative literature because I loved reading, wanted to improve my writing and wanted to be fluent in another language. I completed my major, but along the way I took some science courses and fell in love with them, too. In a few months I'll be graduating from medical school.

So you never know.

And I've never regretted the unconventional path.

Just embrace it and do your best and make as many connections and learn as much as you can. College is a unique opportunity to study as much as possible about anything you want to know about.
