Alright, so here’s the deal - I am currently an industrial engineering student; however, this isn’t really rocking my boat. So I recently made the decision to change my major. Aaaand here is the other deal - I don’t actually know what I want to do with my life. There were two options that really appealed to me based on my two dream jobs: (1) to open some kind of food service place (like a bakery or a café or something like that!!) or (2) be some kind of science tour guide person at a science center (like the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago or the Exploratorium in San Fran). So basically, I wanted to see what my options were for those two career paths. I narrowed down the options to culinary science and elementary education.
In the end, I am choosing to major in culinary science. Not only does my passion for food trump most things in my life, but I can imagine a life in food service, even if it means that I get crappy hours or whatever. Maybe it’s just that I personally don’t have any motivation for things I’m not passionate about, but I truly believe that passion is legitimately the path you need to follow in life, because choosing something else just doesn’t work out in the end.
I just wrote up a 4 year plan to graduate college instead of studying for my math final for a class that won’t matter in the long run. I admit that I have some problems with my motivation, but I’m glad that it allowed me to see that I don’t have a future with engineering.
On that note, I’m going to try to motivate myself to study for my differential equations final. I am probably going to fail. And that is just too bad for me.
