So, I've been thinking about what I want to do with my life a lot here lately. Probably due to the fact that I have a lot of extra time on my hands (the whole taking a semester off thing really helps in that regard). I mean, I thought I wanted to be a teacher. But now, I'm just not sure. I mean, do I really want to be around kids all day every day? I'm beginning to think that the Sunday School hour at church is long enough.

But then, I'm faced with the dilemma that I honestly have no clue what I want to do with my life...
I mean, I know that I want to get married and have kids someday...and moving out of my parents house would probably be a good thing. But as far as the whole job thing goes- all I know is that I want to be a stay at home mom. And they don't really make degrees for that one. I mean, entering a more male-dominated field than education may help on that one (um, building science anyone?). I'm thinking business (mostly because of the flexibility it would provide). I'm just not sure that I can decide what I'm going to do with the rest of my life at the age of twenty.

Decisions, decisions. I mean, I know that I'm blessed to have a semester off to figure out all this madness. And, I know that I should be avoiding the stress. But, I also know that I HAVE to figure this out and that I don't have forever to decide. Registration for Spring 2011 is in October. I need to figure this out. I need to figure out if I need to transfer....again. I need to figure out if I need to change my major...again. I'm just not sure I'm ready to make these kinds of plans. I know I shouldn't make big plans right now. But, I just don't have time to sit and wait. (I mean, it's not my personality. I'm. A. Planner.)

All this to say...if you have any ideas on a major. Or other life plans. Let me know. :)

  1. Oh, my goodness. I understand a little, I think. I'm not going into teaching, but English is as completely female-dominated as education is. It's ridiculous, to say the least. And although I know what my major is, I have no idea what I want to do with my degree once I get out. My roommate Steph said, "You know you have to start looking for jobs around your junior year, right?" And I'm a junior. Ahhhh. Crazy. But Jesus is good. And He's faithful to bring all things together for those who love Him. Take a deep breath and start praying.
    I'm actually with you on the stay-at-home mom thing too. Which is not something I have really told anyone, but it's true.
