Over the past few months, I have been dealing with some of the most frustrating times of my life, though I rarely show it. Partially because I hate
pitty, partially because people really dont give a $#%%.
The thing that has been frustrating me the most is school. I have been in college for 5 years, and I still am clueless on what I want to do. To be
honest, I came to college for one thing, to play Football. I did that, and absolutely loved it, I don't regret that for one minute. However, I
thought I wanted to teach, then I realized, I hate school why would I want to be in a classroom for the rest of my life. So I scrambled around trying
to find a new, easy major. Well I came upon Sport Management, thinking to myself "Sweet, a major all about sports, this will be cake." I took the
intro classes and whatnot and at the time, I enjoyed it because we talked about topics in sports everyday and it was awesome. Well as the years went
by, I began to enjoy it less and less because I realized that it wasn't about sports, it was the business side to sports. I understand that the
sports industry is a business, but the thing is, I hate that side. It shows me how negative sports are for society. Don't get me wrong, I will love
sports my whole life, but the way society views sports is that if you don't like one team or think another sport is dumb, you are rivals and hate
each other. Being an athlete, a lover of a game and an open minded person, this is not the purpose of sports. Sports are suppose to bring out the best
in you, teach you how to win and how to deal with losses, work hard and develop relationships that will last forever. Most importantly, Respect. No
matter how much i disliked a rival team or player, at the end of the day, when the game was over, win or lose, I got in line and I shook my opponents
hand because we know what it takes to play the game, how hard it was to reach this point and knowing that we both played to the best of our abilities.
that is what sports are about, and the business side of sport has ruined it.
My problem now is that I am close to graduation, but I need to take a few classes that honestly, Do not interest me at all. Business does not interest
me at all. Since I have become more independent, more open minded I have realized that my purpose is to help people, not market to them or sell things
to them, help them. I love topics like sociology, Psychology, Philosophy subjects that help me understand people better so that I can do my Best to
help them. That is what I am passionate about.
While i thought sport management was awesome, I realized that it is everything I stand against. Now I am in a rough position. It has hit me now that I
have made a huge mistake.
This was just a rant, that i needed to get off my chest.
Thanks for listening.
have a wonderful evening.
