Returning to School After Academic Suspension

So reality is I was academically suspended last school year, my junior year. At that time I was undecided, clinically depressed, and couldn't leave my bed because I was sleeping 16 hours a day. It was pretty bad. I ended with a cumulative GPA of a 1.6. And it does that suck. But what this suspension did do, was give me a reason to get my mental health in check. I didn't want to live like this for the rest of my life. Long story short, I got myself together and appealed. I am currently in the first semester back and on track to making the dean's list which is pretty amazing. I'm loving school right now and I could cry tears of happiness. Being back has made me so much more appreciative. I am of getting a chance to continue my education and actually enjoying every minute of it. Problem is with such a bad GPA I can't declare a major. Which is why, I am also retaking some classes I failed the years before so I will be able to pull mine up enough to get into the major I want. I'm struggling with the fact I am stuck in limbo. I feel like I don't know what to do. I know what I want to major in, but how will this effect my chances of getting an internship in communications with just serving experience and an as of right now undecided student. For other students who returned to their institution after academic suspension how did you feel. How do you get opportunities when you're in rebuild. I want to start seeking working experiences and opportunities in my major I plan on declaring after I bring my GPA up. But what do I do know. Can I only just wait?
