Choosing a major
I'm having trouble choosing a major and am scared that if i make the wrong choice, I will not live a fulfilling life. mainly feel pressured to choose something STEM because i've done well in all of my STEM classes at college, and that's where (most) of today's money is, plus I know it will make my parents proud. but i'm not sure if thats where i want to go. i just want to live a fulfilling life. i enjoy reading + writing and love disney, but not sure what sort of career/major that could lead to. feeling lost and nervous. really just looking for advice, I need to choose one soon because of the AP credit that i brought in. i want to be fulfilled and make money, but that's what everyone wants i guess??? please give advice ah thank u2 replies
