My major!

The last few days have been long and intense and full and easy and everything.

First, I should update you all on my actual life. I am no longer a college freshman, I am a sophomore. I am also no longer Undecided in my major. At the end of last semester I declared Interior Design with a double minor in Architecture and Retail.

I've heard from many people (directly and indirectly) that they are surprised I didn't do something in health or medicine. In my life right now, I want to be able to create and make things. I don't want to sit behind a desk all day. I don't want to memorize chemicals and reactions and science things right now. I just want to do something creative and fun.

Unfortunately, with fun comes work. Apparently. My drawing classes are intense. I have 3 labs this semester. On paper it says I'm taking 15 hours a week, but I'm actually doing 21 hours. And working. And trying to have a life. To say that I am overwhelmed at times is a bit of an understatement.

I have started to make plans to create a colony of college dropouts in the mountains. We'll grow dreads and make clothes. Pickle vegetables and carve furniture. I have several friends on the wait list to be approved.

Through all of this, I am still wearing real clothes (at least to work ;D ha). The top is from my work, skirt is Forever 21, and flats are from Dillards.

I hope you all have started to figure out what you want to major in in life.



  1. I have the most beautiful sister.

  2. Sounds like a lot of work, but it will definitely pay off for you in the long run and you'll ideally be super happy doing what you love in the end. :) Love your top btw!

  3. I can teach the kids at your commune in the mountains. I hear the Alps are nice...

  4. Ugh. I'm so excited for you! Ha. To be honest, I wish I had your courage. I am majoring in biology currently, and minoring in a writing field (yet to be declared). But I basically sit in science classes all day long and...I don't know. Hahaha. I got a 56 on my first chemistry test and sometimes I just sit there and wonder, Why am I here???

    But in the end, I think it'll help set me up for what I want to do which is write. Or be a doctor. One of the two!
