Hey, how did you know what you want to study? I am first year economics and I feel like I made a huge mistake. This semester I’m having Micro and accounting and I just can’t focus on it, it’s boring. I don’t know what else to do. I’m going insane
Honestly I had no clue what I wanted to do out of highschool. Math and sciences have always been hard for me, and as much as I love the humanities, I needed something that would help me to get a job to pay for school and life in general. I’ve bounced between sustainable business, management, and accounting because they come easily to me and I find them interesting. My advice is to study something in an area that you actually enjoy because you’re going to be studying it for the next four years. Even if you just take classes to figure out what you like/which subjects you’re strong in during your first year, you should still have plenty of time to get in all of your graduation requirements if you have an idea of a major by your second year. You’re really only an undergrad once, so try to study things that you enjoy, and if money’s a concern for you like it is for me, try to find something that bridges the gap between subjects you enjoy and areas that pay well. It’s definitely ok to not know what you want to do in your first year of college, but definitely paying attention to which classes you enjoy the most is a good start!
