Changing My Major.....Again

Well, I have been gone or rather haven't been blogging for quite a while now. It just hasn't been on my mind really, but every now and again, I may just start back up with something to talk about =) Well, as my title says, I have changed my major yet again and back to computers. I am struggling in Accounting big time and I think that I will just keep that as a minor since I have already taken 4 courses in the subject. Next spring semester I would only have 2 courses to take and then I'm done with the accounting stuff. I understand the basics of everything, but as it got more advanced, it seems like my brain just stopped. I don't know.

Anyway, I'm taking a couple of classes for the summer. For one, to play catch up a bit. Secondly, I really don't want to sit around at home all summer long, and three, I'm able to get a partial pell grant to go even though a loan had to be taken out for the rest of it. I keep saying each semester I can't wait for it to start, but it's just that I have new classes to learn from and more subjects to catch my interests. This summer I will be taking a jazz appreciation class and I think I will have to go to 2 jazz music events, something like that, during this course. I never really listened to jazz before, but I don't mind giving a try to different music genres.

Well, I hope everyone is doing well in their courses....
Until next time.

You might really like your new computer classes. I took a couple of accounting courses, too, and I admire you for doing that. They are more difficult than I thought they would be too.

Good luck on your classes!

I think there is a problem with the way we do majors in the American university system. Really--does it make much sense to have someone decide what he/she wants to study and do as a profession for the rest of their life without having "tested the waters" first, so to speak? I know so many people that get to their final semester where they are doing internships and student teaching, etc. only to find that they totally dislike the profession that they've just spent the past 4 years studying about!

Anyway, I feel your pain. It's hard to know what to commit to especially if you are like me and have a ton of interests! Good luck in whatever you choose!

Megan - you have a neat idea there. How about having an intensive weekend for all prospective majors... a person could experience several different ones in a month or so... and save LOTS of time in the process.

You also touch on a good point about people with lots of interests. It's a good thing, even if it does mean changing your major sometimes.

I agree. I have a couple of other interest too such as photography and would love to take a couple of classes in that too. I think that is one reason why lots of people go back to school because they want to try out different things.

Thanks for both of your comments.
