This should be easier now that Im in college.
I mean, I actually get to take classes that I’m interested in.
That will pertain to what I want to do with my life.
With the exception of Research Methods… I’ve liked my psych classes.
I’m not used to learning information in school that I can apply to the real world and every day situations.
(Tangent… when I was visiting Oberlin, one of the parents on my tour got in a tizzy because the guide kept using the phrase “real world” to refer to life beyond college. He said, “What isn’t real about college? How is this not real? It’s as real as anything else, so I wish people would stop saying that.” I totally got what he was saying. It’s something I think about from time to time.)
There’s nothing more interesting to me than human behavior and it’s causes and motivations.
I used to be scared about deciding what I want to do with the rest of my life so early on.
Like, by announcing it now it would inevitably not happen, I would jinx myself.
But I can’t imagine losing interest in psychology.
I can’t imagine losing my interest in listening and helping people.
And the more I read, the more lectures I go to, the more situations I can apply my knowledge to…
The more reassured I am.
I like this work.
Now I just have to find a college job other than Campus Dining Services…
