There's something that just doesn't feel right to me about the way you're "supposed" to go from high school straight into college and have it all figured out. As an 18 year old, how was I supposed to choose a major and right then and there decide what I will spend the rest of my life doing? At 18 years old, are we even experienced enough, or educated enough, to have any idea of what we want to actually do? Sure, some people know. Some people have a dream of becoming something and stick to it and have no problem. But I feel that with most people, that isn't the case. Plus, you can only be an undecided major for so long- once you've taken all of your pre requisites you really don't have a choice but to choose something. I'm very fortunate that I have everything paid for. If I was paying for school out of pocket, I would've absolutely waited and tried to figure out my interests before starting at a university, because honestly if you're just spending money on classes that aren't towards what you want to do, it can be waste of money. And time.
Anyway, back to where I intended this ramble of a post to go! So I don't know what I want to do with my life and it changes every five seconds. One day I want to get my MBA, or my Master's in accounting. The next day I find a renewed interest in psychology and decide I want to go get my PhD. Why am I such a mess? My competing interests in psychology and business are the problem because I can't figure out which I would rather do. But then I found a program where I can apply both.
DJ and I talk about our future all the time. And while sometimes we change our minds, I think we've both figured out what we really want to do, and the best part is that it works out perfectly for us both individually and as a couple. I'll be moving there in January after I graduate. Hopefully he'll come home in December for my graduation, we'll spend the holidays together and with our families, and then we'll drive back to Montana to start our lives together. He gets out in February of 2016, and we want to move back home to be with our families. He wants to pursue a BS in Construction management, and I want to get my Masters in Applied Psychology. They're both programs through Arizona State, and it's really exciting to think about.
Sure, we'll probably change our minds in the next two years. But for the first time in a very very long time, I feel confident in what I want to do. I feel confident that I've found something I could make a career out of, and something that I could enjoy doing. Same goes for DJ. So yay for getting our shit together. It's definitely a relief to have some idea of what the future holds!
PS did you know I'm going to Montana tomorrow? Woo!
