I also started making preparations to apply for the nursing program, and nothing seemed to be working out. This semester I finally admitted to myself that nursing wasn’t for me. I’ve been researching and searching out new majors this semester. I considered paramedicine, communications, and physical therapy. Still none of those felt right. I’ve always been fascinated with psychology, but kept pushing it to the back of my head because of how much extra school it required. The thought of studying psychology kept nagging at me though, and finally I decided to switch my major to Psychology.
I went in to Brother Eric Gee’s office, which is the department chair of psychology, to talk to him about my idea of switching my major over to Psychology. Speaking to him really confirmed to me that this really is something that I want to do. I was able to ask him questions that pertained to a future with a psychology degree.
