In the past, I have had a lot of trouble with making decisions too late. I decided to transfer schools about one month before the next semester began, and had to wait another whole semester because of it. I decided what school I would enroll in about two months before the year started and had to rush to finish everything on time. I barely made it here.
That being said, I am currently struggling between the two ideas of:
1. Planning out the rest of my time in college
2. letting things happen naturally
I know that it’s a give and take but Bill Gates and Donald Trump didn’t get to where they are by just letting things happen, right? Every day I wake up I want to have a plan. I want to better myself, get an edge on my career, become more culturally aware, make friends, get involved, and so much more.
Right now my major is Documentary Journalism, but I can’t decide whether I should minor in Political Science or double major. I have the time; I’m ahead in my credits. This brings up the question of when should I get an internship? Where? How do I even go about finding one? How does it work? When should I study abroad? How much time do I want to spend away from campus? All these questions happen in about the span of 30 seconds, over and over.
I want to hear some success stories, tips, and advice, from anyone! What is a good balance between the two? I don’t want to wait until senior year and realize that it’s too late to do the things I wanted to. I have a goal to get into NYU for my masters degree, and even if I can’t afford to go, I just want to be good enough to have the option to do whatever I want to. I don't want to be held back because of my lack of action anymore.
