I’m not, well I’m not anymore hence I’m back in college. As of today I was going to be a major in Economics. I’m an idiot. I don’t know why I picked that but its not me. I tried being the “financial guy” but it just bores me to death. So, here I am with all of my college gen-ed requirements out of the way with no major yet.
I still have time obviously but I need to choose wisely. Judging from my contributions to this site its easy to see I’m more inclined to the creative field than anything. I’m looking in the film/TV direction or the golf direction, in that order. For golf it would be a management position of some sort.
Currently I’m a graphic designer and have been for the past 17 years (I’m 31). Its boring now. It may be the job I’m in, I’ve been here for 14 years, basically my only job. I make decent bank, I’m able to make T-Park, I can adjust my hours to suit my school (and golf) requirements but its just not there anymore. Its a drag ass situation to get myself in there every morning. Its just flat out boring.
The only downfall, my current school offers dick in either direction! If I choose the film direction my tuition would more than double. Then they question of “Do I want to go into debt” comes into play.
Who’s lucky enough to be doing what they love? Was it what you went to school for? If its what you love, was the passion there from an early age or did it show its head later?[/quote]
Ive changed directions so many times its hard to count.
I originally started of wanting to be a physical therapist. However, the prospect of working with the elderly and the completely untrained slob who is bitching about bad knees despite the fact he/she is 300 lbs pushed me away. Yea, maybe I might be lucky enough to work with athletes. Maybe. So I quit.
I moved into pharmacy. I gave it a run. I finished my gen ed’s and had a 3.1 GPA at Wayne State in Detroit. Despite my decent grades and a 612 on my PCATS, I couldn’t get into pre pharm school. I quickly got sick of school and basically Detroit in general. Dropped out.
I have just recently at the age of 27 started back at Eastern Michigan University. Business school. Im looking to bust into the sales industry hardcore. Probably something medical related because Im knowledgable and interested in such. Maybe even work for a supplement industry, or something HRT/anti aging related as well?
Im looking to be a cut throat, intense, take no shit or prisoners in the sales world. Yea, Im pretty excited and Ive got a feeling that I finally found my way. I think my extremely healthy lifestyle, both to exercise and food, my addiction to reading(I go threw books like water) and HRT program dedication at a young age will give me a tremendous advantage over everyone else. Im currently working as a server in fine dining. Its actually VERY good training to to have. Ive learned speaking skills, social skills and public speaking and interacting all from serving tables. Can you tell Im competitive, LOL?
Either way, just find your way. Take a long hard look at what you really want to do and you will soon get it. I would suggest you start reading alot of books. There are many that will help you on your way. It worked for me.
