Like any struggling artist, I yearn for my work to be recognized. However, the road is a long one and during that time there will be some hardships.
I recently made the decision to no longer pursue psychology and instead focus more on theater and creative writing. It was a hard decision to make because theater and english are not the easiest degrees to obtain jobs with; however, I know that I would rather focus my attention on something that I love to do, rather than force myself to study something that is only interesting to me. Psychology will always be something that I love, but having a career in it is no longer something I want.
Changing my mind about careers and majors hasn’t been my only struggle. Finding a job, writing short stories, homework, theater, finding time to sleep…. This semester has been rough but there are some upsides:
1) I am going to be studying abroad in London next fall!
2) I have a house to live in next year
3) I have wonderful friends and family who support me
All the pieces are in place for success, I just need to find a way to put them together.
