Brace yourself: I think I have finally come to a conclusion about what I am going to do with myself in the distant realm known as THE FUTURE.Lately, I have been planning to get a two year degree in network administration. I am interested in computers, technology, and such, but overall I think this would end up being a very boring (but lucrative) career. Instead, I think I will go out on a limb and get a four year degree where my heart lies — journalism. Even though this would put me over the TERRIFYING age of 30 when I graduate, I have finally come to realize the old adage of “better late than never” may, in fact, be true.What I find immensely strange about my epiphany is that this was my original plan for what to do after high school. I can’t even begin to figure out why it took me nine years to settle on this, or how my life would be different now had I stayed on the same course I had originally charted for myself. I imagine things would’ve been quite different, but not necessarily for the better. I know I wouldn’t have met Joey, and it’s likely I wouldn’t have moved to Chicago, a city which I have become quite fond of in the last 15 months. Those are two aspects of my life I wouldn’t trade for even a stack of degrees.

  1. Oh MAN< YOU WILL BE GREAT AT THIS!!!!!!!!! ANd going to college right out of high school is HIGHLY overrated. You have the maturity now to pay attention in classes and the focus to do your work with a thought for the future and what it can do for your career instead of just trying to get something done for class. I think this is a GREAT IDEA!!!!!!!!
