I’ve been having what you could call a pre-graduation crisis. I’m slowly realizing that what I may end up doing after I graduate college may not be anything close to what I had in mind.
My love for creativity and artistic expression pushed me to be a music major as a freshman and sophomore…but I soon found that being forced to express myself in ways that the school system deemed “right” and “necessary” only frustrated me and took all joy out of playing my instrument. I always knew that whatever I did in my future, I wanted to live my life helping others. I decided being a counselor would fit that bill and so I will now graduate with a degree in Psychology this coming May.
And now….I’m not even sure I want to go to graduate school. I desperately love to create. I’ve recently involved myself in Fair Trade organizations and may even have an internship for this spring with a Chicago based fair trade company. I couldn’t be more excited; its the perfect blend of creativity, visual beauty and helping those in need.
Nevertheless, I can’t help but feel that I wasted my time majoring in something I probably won’t really use. If I could go back in time, I would double major, familiarize myself with how businesses run or master graphic arts.
But I can only work with what I have. And God has a reason for every decision I’ve made along the way. And I’m reminding myself that if I do all things withgreat love, I’ll succeed either way.
