Last week I changed my majors from Philosophy & Political Science to Philosophy & Religion. I realized that I was really not into all of the shit that happens in politics. There’s too much stupidity and not enough work done handling real issues. I am currently at the end of a class called Bible Blogging, for which I and my blogmates created this site, and it really caused me to think about what I want out of college. I’ve always been really curious about what everyone thinks about religion, and I love encountering new points of view. I have decided, because of this, to abandon politics and study religion.
Too often I hear it said that I am slacking or the question, “What do you want to do with your life??” Hell I don’t know. I’m 19. How am I supposed to know what I want to do for the rest of my life? For right now, I know that I want to study the things that I love: Philosophy and Religion. Do I have a specific career in mind? No, but I have faith that studying what I’m interested in now will pay off in the future, even if I don’t plan on being an engineer.
