Have you ever looked back on your college years and think, what the hell was I thinking when I decided to major in that?
I have been feeling that feeling since 2006 when I walked out of that gym where our graduation was. Why did I choose a Communications degree -- the broadest degree at my college? Why didn't anyone tell me I should pick something else; something more specific or defined.
I wish I could go back in time and have gotten another degree. Dont get me wrong...there is nothing WRONG with a communications degree.. its just that there is nothing that I specialize in and there is nothing that makes me stand out more then any other candidate looking to find a job.
I have no special talents, I can't take any tests to increase my specialties...there isn't much to do...hence why I got into sales. Not that sales is bad, but it's just not for me.
And now it's almost too late. I have an apartment, bills, and many other things to pay. I don't have time to go back to school full time. I don't have the money to go back to school full time. And I can't, because then I would have to leave my job..and then I would have no money. It's a vicious cycle.
Granted I don't completely regret anything about my college years, I just wish that I knew a little bit more of what I wanted to do, so that those 4 years of my life that I spent there, it could have helped me in the end when I got out to make more money and not have to go back to school to get anywhere.
I am almost thinking that if I didn't graduate a year early and actually went to college a year after and took a year off..I might know more of what I wanted to do. But on the flip side... i would have never met any of the people I have met along the way of my life and journeys so far so it all equals out.
Does anyone ever feel like that?
I have a feeling I am not alone.
