Allow me to indulge you in the dreams of my childhood and then some (then some meaning I’ve seriously considered it).
Pre-MedicineOkay, I did not choose this major. 5-year-old me did not care so I basically went with what some people call poster Asian child.
I won’t deny it - medicine is fascinating. Do I want to deal with memorizing all 206 bones of the average human body - names, functions, locations, and whatever else - for the MCAT, though? Not really.
AuthorWhat? I like writing. I mean, I somewhat like it. I even wrote two books in 7th grade (all of this before I decided to go indulge my happiness into blogging) - all in first draft still - and have them on my laptop’s hard drive. Embarrassing, but whatever.
Maybe I’ll get back to it in the future. (I personally think I’m a better writer than a speaker. Not sure how that bodes for me as a Communications major.)
Web DesignerI claim the design of Bookwyrming Thoughts as my own. Back when I was 15, I didn’t have money to hire a designer (those are pretty expensive) and well… I just deleted my other blog and created a new one with an entirely different topic of focus. Granted that I enjoy reading, but at the time I wasn’t sure I would even blog for long - considering the fact I only lasted five months with The Wizard Diaries. A very boring name, but far less complicated than “Bookwyrming Thoughts.”
I’ve totally thought about changing it and rebranding the blog, but ha! Unwinding nearly four years isn’t my thing. Still, though, I tend to see "Book Wyrming Thoughts" commonly with "Bookworming Thoughts" a far second (I ignore the error if anyone spells it right).
I’m getting sidetracked. Long story short, I dipped my toes into web designing when I was 15, and here I am today. I decided not to go down this route because staring at code all day isn’t something I would enjoy (occasionally, yes). My parents would also flip their tables (my mom did - figuratively).
Although lately... I've considered a minor in Web Design.
AstronautSpace! Planets! Stars! Flying - or as close to flying as I can ever get. My grandmother might have been horrified. Same for my mom. And maybe everyone else.
Graphic DesignerSo… One person says I don’t have an eye for design. (I think she meant interior design???)
Another says I do have an eye for design.
I’m really not sure what to make of this.
Professional ViolinistToo much pressure. I won't lie, though. I love the violin.
PsychologistHumans are fascinating sometimes.
NurseLittle me wanted to stick needles in people. I know, that sounds horrible, but I guess I hated needles when I was a kid and wanted revenge.
Entertainment IndustryTechnically, I wanted to go into music and maybe acting, but while I’ve been told I have a good voice (I think I sound squeaky and overly high pitched), I’m no songwriter.
Library and Informational ScienceUnfortunately the only school in Missouri that has an ALA approved status is University of Missouri - Columbia (commonly known as Mizzou).
A school, no offense to them, that I have a bit of a thing against and would rather go to a school that I don’t want to go to any day. (Really it’s because the school is a common place to apply to and I just don’t want to be that type.)
So instead, I basically chose the next major closest to working with books and ended up in the Communications field (now here's to hoping I don’t change my mind in the next few years).
