Right now I have finished my first year at a community college. I am currently majoring in chemistry, hoping to transfer to a university and get a BS in Biochemistry. For months, though, I have felt unsure of my decision. I find my classes a breeze so far, and have gotten all As. I have this fear niggling in the back of my mind that eventually I will lose interest in the subject, and I feel as though I have already, and I’m only convincing myself I like it when really I don’t.
I have had a passion for writing for the longest time. I find myself writing a lot in my spare time, and I read far more than I watch TV. If I majored in english, I would probably go with a creative writing minor. Other than using the skills learned to enhance my writing to publish books, I don’t know what I would do. And frankly, I don’t know what I’d do with a biochem major either. I don’t want to go to med school, that’s for sure. I guess my biggest worry right now is switching, and finding I don’t like it, or sticking with chemistry/biochem and finding out I do indeed hate it.
Also, at this point I am not extremely worried about money. I would rather get a job that pays less (but enough) and liking it than a job that pays big bucks and really hating it.
Either way, I will maybe go to the career counseling office if I can soon and see if they can offer some advice. I know you guys can’t make the decision for me, but if any of you could share some experiences in your humanities/english major or if you were able to find jobs after, or such, I’d really appreciate it.
