Would my writing have advanced further than what Ive accomplished so far?
Or, would I have told them, Get lost Im not a writer!
I know it's not necessary to decide on a specific degree tract freshman year but let's face facts; I'm 30 years old with two unhealthy parents that need my help, and a niece and nephew that have been taken from their parents and placed in my care - in other words, there's no time like the present to stop being wishy-washy about the future.
That being said, I've set my mind on two very different degree tracts that not only hold my interest but that the job market predicts an increase in employment for those fields over the next several years.
" There are too many things that grab and hold my interest, for a little while at least.
I have always known that I wanted to go to college, why I didn't do so immediately after high school is a mystery to me but, I'm finally here and I intend to get every possible thing out of it that I can.And, my parents were always reading, whether it was the evening news or books from the library.No Sunday was complete without Mom sitting in the kitchen with her cup of coffee, diligently working the crossword puzzle in the morning paper.Or at least, to give parents some idea of what field to push them towards.After all, how many children really know what they want to do with the rest of their lives? It's always asked with the best intentions, to get kids to think of their future. " It's the biggest question asked of children, from toddlers to teenagers.But how many of us as adults, when faced with the same question today, know what we want to do for the rest of our lives? Tastes change so dramatically, who's to say youll even like the same things when you grow up?When I was young I never said, "I want to work in the operations end of a bank, processing money orders and other payment products for more than half of my life." I was guided towards a business career in school because I was good with numbers.It wasnt like we were asked to spell these words - just memorize them.But now, I realize the value of having so many words at my disposal.
