I'm happy today!

6.13.2011

First of all, thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the new followers. It's been so lovely meeting all of you and actually receiving comments on the posts I write. It's refreshing after my past attempts at blogging, which spanned over the course of years and yet were never really read.


So today I drove down to my college and finally took the first steps into changing my major. I've been talking about it for a while now as I've been unhappy with English from the very beginning of my college career, even though it's always been my best subject.

Here's the thing: about a year ago I walked into the college's Child Development Center and asked about volunteering. I didn't really have a reason and it wasn't going toward a job or school or anything, I just felt a need to try.

Basically the director told me that I had to take a basic Ch Dev class with the school and then I could come back and apply. I took the class, researched and wrote the speech for a pretty badass debate topic, passed with an awesome grade, and fell in love. I have wanted to delve further into the field ever since, but I never actually took the necessary steps. Until today!

I'm so happy I talked to the counselor. I've been feeling incredibly defeated lately, as my grades haven't been impressive (I was too unhappy with what I was doing to do it well), and I felt like I was pretty far behind. But I'm much further ahead than I thought I was, and actually only have maybe two or three more semesters of classes to do before I can graduate - and only because I'm planning to do it a little bit slowly, what with the pregnancy and the new baby and all.


Seriously...

I'm happy with my choice and I'm happy that I'm actually doing what I want to do. I started college before I really knew who I was and I definitely wasn't ready for it, but I at least feel a little refreshed today. I'm so ready for this!

In other news, my bedroom TV is currently hooked up with the one in the living room so that I can watch Netflix without having the Wii hooked up in here - the only thing is, I have to watch whatever's playing in that room. My sister is currently in search mode typing in things like "Tay sucks" (that's me!) and "Barney" and other children's shows. And now we're watching Yo Gabba Gabba. My sister is sixteen.

My family is weird.

  5. Congratulations on the new baby! And, congratulations on changing your major to something you're passionate about. Life is too short to go to school for something that will not make you happy. I've been in the same boat for a while now, stuck in a career that doesn't making me happy - I haven't yet had the courage to change things.

    Welcome to voiceBoks!

  6. I am glad you are persuing your interests in school. PS, my family is just as weird I am sure. :)

    I still can't believe our first party had over 300 links. I have a special give away planned for linkers this week.

    Thanks again, hope to see you at the bacon time party every week Friday evenings through Sunday night.

  7. I am following those of you back who asked. Thank you for visiting! :)

    @Kathy: I know, right? I wish kids' shows today were a little less weird. Haha.

    @Spilled Milkshake: Thank you! I've been really afraid of being stuck with something I'm not happy about for the rest of my life. I started for English because I was always "good at it" and my dad told me that it's what I should do. Bleh.

    @Mindie: Families rock, haha. Thank you for visiting! I will definitely be back next weekend. :)

    Congrats on changing your major. I still need to change mine...

  14. Thank you! I've followed everyone back (always do!) and if I didn't leave you a comment it's because I feel awful just saying, "I followed you back!" Seems like an obligation. I promise to be a good comment-er when I get to read the posts. I'm just all over the place right now. :)
