Recently I have been feeling unhappy with how my academic career is going. I was feeling uninspired and unmotivated! I wanted to do more things that made me happy because school was NOT one of them. I had been thinking of switching majors for some time, and was on the fence for too long. Yesterday I finally went to meet with a new advisor and officially switched my major. After leaving her office I felt like a ton of bricks had been lifted from my shoulders!
My new advisor gave me such good advise (which my old advisor had given me none besides to stay where I was at) and she told me “if something isn’t working change it!” She was right. I was worried about graduation time, finances, my parents opinions, and at the end of the day I could not continue with the way things had been going. I decided my happiness and success was more important than all of those things. If I really want to make a change, all of those things could be worked out.
If you have a gut feeling about ANYTHING odds are, it’s the right thing to do!! I learned an important lesson in life yesterday. No one knows whats best for you better than you! For the first time on months I feel excited to sign up for classes! Listen to your inner self, because she’s always right !
