Ok here is the thing. I am a sophomore in a 4 year state college right now and do not know what I want to do with my life. My freshman year, I was an undecided major and got most of my generals out of the way. But, I couldnt decide what I wanted to declare. Nothing jumped out at me. I had always wanted to be a sports writer or a sports reporter, but I didnt wanna go through all the other english junk that I would have to go through if I went into some kind of writing or communications major.
This year, I spent the fall semester finishing up my generals and declared my major in Social Sciences for Secondary education for this spring semester. I have always kind of enjoyed sociology, psychology and history and things like that so I figured I would give teaching a try.
Well, I have this job at an outdoor ice rink and I deal with 50-75 annoying, stupid kids and crazy parents every single day, and it just gives me a headache. I never really had a problem with kids before, but im really hating my job right now because of all this.
Right now, I feel like I will not enjoy teaching for the rest of my life. And I feel like its too late in my college career to switch now because ive already spent this time and money. And taking a year off or dropping out or going to a tech school is not an option because I love the college life, ive made sooo many great friends up here, and I would feel like a failure. But I feel like im at a crossroads right now. Anybody got any wise words?
