I've got a lot of different ideas on major, everything seems to sound interesting, which isn't really good because I feel like I might end up taking "Intro to Everything" just to try it on for size and see if its something I want to stick with.
Current thoughts are:
Physical Therapy: staying fit and helping people out and alright pay. My bodys sort of out of whack and trying to improve it has always been interesting to me. I sort of lack the willpower in a lot of cases, though. Plus all the physical therapists that I've been to over the years seem happy and stoked on life and do a lot of skiing/biking/outdoorsy things. Chiropractors and other sort of holistic health fields spark my interest.
Engineering: I liked tinkering and building things as a kid, now I don't so much just because I don't have the time or money or motivation. Plus in real life it seems like an engineer really just sits in a cubicle and crunches numbers on a computer. Good pay and job prospects, though.
Journalism/writing: I have no idea if I'd even like doing this, but it seems like a fun creative job without having set schedules (ie. The 9-5) which is more like how I operate. If I'm not feeling it rather than sitting in an office wishing I could get out I'd rather work on something when Inspiration strikes and dive in. If that makes sense. The only reason I really said journalism and writing is because these are the only professions I really know what work like that. I like to read a lot of articles in things things I find interesting, though, like health, psychology, lots of stuff on Vice and Outside magazine, Yobeat, Snowboarder, Art of Manliness. Also trying to start reading more, so far read a lot of Malcolm Gladwell, also "Into the wild". Honestly haven't picked up a book in years before that. Job prospects scare me, though.
Industrial design/product design: this is one that I just heard about and haven't really done any research, but getting to design and make products for a cool company like Patagonia or a snowboard company or any other one that shares my ideals (not Walmart) I think that would be very cool.
Photography/Videography/Photojournalism/etc.: I don't know. I don't even own a camera but the idea of getting to travel to all these cool places and see a bunch of amazing things and trying to capture the feeling of that moment seems like something I'd really enjoy. Down side is no job security and probably living out of a van and not getting to have a family or normal life. Though things like this :
is something I'd like to do some day.
I'm noticing a theme of wanting to improve myself, I guess, and live a full and exciting life, more or less just be happy.
Current classes I'm signed up for: Precalc, Nutrition, Biology, and Survey of Engineering.
If you read that ramble and have a suggestion on a major or area of study, I'd love to hear it.
