I’m on fire.

16 Nov

First, you must listen to this song while reading this entry. Why? Because I said so!

Lately I have been contemplating a big life change.

Growing up, I always assumed that I’d have a very academic job. I considered myself very intellectual, although that mainly consisted of reading entire stacks of classic literature for the fun of it and being a Time subscriber at the age of 11.

I’m not nearly so naive now as to consider myself an intellectual, but I do thrive when reading all sorts of things about philosophy, literature, neuroscience, biology, and the like. I can’t claim to be very smart, but I like to read what I can on these things. So I always felt safer sticking to them.

As many of you know, I’m finishing up a B.S. in Psychology right now. I’ve absolutely loved my college experience, and I’d love for psychology to have a place in my life, although some of my grades have been far from perfect. But as the end of my college time nears, I’m contemplating a very different career path with much less stability.

That scares me half to death! But it’s so exciting at the same time.

    That IS exciting! If you want my two cents (which you probably don’t, but I’ll share anyways) – don’t put too much pressure on yourself to decide what you are going to do with your life. Realistically, the majority of people end up switching careers as some point anyway 🙂

    And, just as a psychology aside, it is my impression that lots of students in clinical psychology programs come in after taking a few years off 🙂 I did and I’m sure grateful for that time!
