Forever A Student


Something that you may not know, well I'm sure you don't know, is that I have been going to school for what seems like forever. I worked HARD in high school, played sports, community service, had a job, took AP and college courses (you know, typical nerd stuff). The result of my hard work was that I went straight to a 4 year university, University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) exactly. I started off my first year taking as many classes as I could, declaring a double major (history and psychology) and finished up my first year (should be freshman going on sophomore) as a junior. Then, well.... I left. I moved back home for many reasons:
  1. I thought to myself, "why in the world am I double majoring?"
  2. Is UCSB really the place for me?
  3. Why in the world am I not satisfied with my education?
  4. Why spend ALL THIS MONEY when I'm having doubts on my choice of study?

I've always been in a nerd in the sense that I love to learn and to this day I still do but why was I not satisfied? I was getting great grades by the passion wasn't there.....

Enter: LOVE of science and health.

There is a reason why I bolded, highlighted, and underlined love.

One class that totally stood out to me at UCSB was my AIDS/Immune System class. I was SO fascinated the entire time at how amazing our bodies are. This inspired me to start taking science courses at my local community college. Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Nutrition, Anatomy, Kinesiology, Personal Training, Physiology....okay, I know, I'm a complete nerd. I loved every single class.

^ See, complete loser that I totally want that shirt.

My boyfriend is always telling me I should "just become a doctor already!" (His voice haunts my dreams!) I've always considered it, but then I remember that drawing blood FREAKS ME OUT. I usually pass out when I have to get an IV or my blood drawn. I guess I can X that idea :/

So, if you couldn't tell already, I have an interest in a lot of things but I have yet to figure out the perfect career for me. Lately I've been inspired to become a Registered Dietician (RD). We'll see how promising that ends up becoming I've already "wanted to become..." a million other things. One day all my loser-ish, reading about scientific research for fun, habits will pay off.... or maybe I'll be a student forever. That pays well, right....? *sigh*

Or maybe... just maybe this will be my fate...
