Alright, here's the deal. Lately, I've been having a lot of second thoughts about what I'm going to do with my life. Originally, I figured I'd
get a degree in global business, start my own small business, then have my degree to "fall back on." I still like the idea of owning my own
business, but I really need to kick it in gear as far as college goes. The last year was basically generals, so it won't hurt me to change my degree
now. See, I've never been good at Math. I can get A's in almost any other class, but Math just kills me. It's something about working with
imaginary letters and numbers that are supposed to represent something...I dunno. I always wind up with C's. Now, for the global business degree I
originally wanted, I have to go up to Math 212. I got a C in Math 151, which was college algrebra. 212, I believe, is either pre-cal or straight out
calculus. I really don't believe there's any way I will pass this class, and I was thinking of changing my degree that would better suit my
personal interests. I was thinking about switching to communication for my major. When I looked up job opportunities for a communication major, just
about everything listed was something I was interested; however, I don't know how serious employeers will take a communication degree.
After thinking about this for a while, it made me start thinking about what I really want to do with my life. I always felt like whatever I do, I
really need it to be something either makes a lot of money (not necessarily a millionaire or anything, just something I can live on and still travel,
have fun, etc.), or really makes a difference in the world or to people in general. Yeah, that's probably what everyone wants, but I'm trying to
make a decision here...
I've never had any interest in just finding some job because I had to, and working for the same low wage my entire life.
I've considered the military (Still am considering), but decided I want to see what I can do with my life first. One of the main problems is the
vast field of things I'm interested in. Just off the top of my head, a bunch of different things I would like to do come to mind. I like animals a
lot, and nature, so I've always thought it would be cool to do something with wild animals... I think if I had to pick one single dream job out of
anything, it would be something along the lines of hosting a show. A radio show, a TV show, I wouldn't really care. I've pretty much established
most of this stuff as unrealistic, which is why I wanted to go into business. I've always excelled in things like writing, marketing and
advertising, I work really well with people, etc. I'm also pretty physically fit and into fitness. Not bragging, but it could be an asset to a
career I might look into. My parents have suggested becoming a physical therapist, and I'm considering that...
Anyway, I know this is all seeming very pointless right now, but I guess I'm just pouring my thoughts out and looking for people who can relate to me
or maybe give me some advice. I feel pretty lost as far as my future goes right now, and time is seriously pressing. Has anyone here majored in
communication, or perhaps can give some insight into well paying jobs for communication majors? Anyone just wanna give some advice? It would be
