Would You Change Careers or Majors if You Could?

Reece Langham asked:

If you were to go to university or college now, what would you study? What would your student life be like and what tips would you give to yourself and fellow students?

I honestly don’t know.

And, to tell you the truth, I didn’t know even when I was in college back in the day when the Internet was first spinning up.

I might have gone into something that would allow me to cherry pick classes from different disciplines – and I would have opted to find classes that were taught by well respected educators.

My student life would probably be just as studious, but I’d be looking to align myself with an apprenticeship in an area I felt I was strongest in.

Quite honestly, I’m so far removed from outmoded constructs of what a “major” is… I don’t even know what I’d be best suited for today, or how I would have learned in the classroom what I’ve learned independent of the classroom.

Tips? If you say you’re going to do something, do it. Don’t leave people hanging, and don’t lie to yourself. Discipline and honesty are lifelong skills which will rarely (if ever) let you down.

  1. I’m currently thinking of how to switch gears in my nursing career..the good thing about nursing though is the many different specialties. I’m considering nursing informatics right now, but i’d definitey need to go back to school for grad studies.
