MIDTERMS

15 Oct

School/learning/education is not fun for me. I have ADHD and I am Dyslexic, meaning it is a hell of a task for me to focus on an assignment or study for a test. Despite this I have spent the vast majority of my last two weeks studying for midterms of which I have two for math and public speaking. I have also been weirdly motivated this semester to study and actually put effort into my classes for the first time ever and my effort has been paying off because I aced my math midterm last week to keep a 100% in the class (to my utter amazement). My public speaking midterm is tomorrow and I hope I get a high grade just to justify the amount of time I spent reading my boring ass textbook and notes.

My biggest problem with school is that I will eventually run out of general education classes to take, meaning I would need to declare a major. My dilemma with choosing a major is that working in one career field for the rest of life sounds terrible and I don’t want to waste money on a degree only to change my mind and take a career path where it is worthless. I also realize I could major in something general that works for all career fields like communications, but what if I get bachelors in communications only to decide I want to study martial arts in the remoteness of the Himalayan Mountains where I would never need it and that money and time is wasted. This seems like a weird scenario but the way my mind works it’s completely plausible, and it wouldn’t even be the weirdest thing I have considered doing.

I badly want to spend another winter living in Colorado, so 2-3 semesters from now when I run out of general education classes maybe that’s what I will do. Or maybe I will figure out how to be a normal college student like everybody else and actually pick a major and graduate.

Anyways, back to studying for me

    I think you should take your time and eventually pick something creative like advertising or courses that lead to such careers. Don’t try to fit in. From what I know…. it never helps.

    You don’t have to have all the answers now. When you find something that you are happy doing–do it.
