Considering of Double Majoring

I’ve been pondering the idea of double majoring because I can’t decide the two majors: communication and philosophy.

Communication classes tend to be project-oriented class, which I like because I enjoy doing projects. It’s fun. Philosophy classes are very mentally stimulating. The discipline encourages students to critically think on any subjects. Plus, the word “philosophy” is a sexy word, to me at least. (I giggle and clap my hands every time I hear that word. Haha.)

I would love to double major, but I used all my academic credits for my transfer degree. So I don’t see any options for me to double major. I can talk to my academic counselor about it, but I’m afraid of the answer.

Should I Be An Health Educator?

While I was reading the Bureau of Labor Statistics about Health Educators and Community Health Workers, I thought this sounds like a right career path for me because I love helping people by giving informative insights. This is basically me in a nutshell. This is what I basically do whenever my friends need help. My friends know that I’m a information addict so they always come to me for advice. So should I be an Health Educator?

What Makes a Good Leader

“The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I”. And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I”. They don’t think “I”. They think “we”; they think “team”. They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.” Peter F. Drucker

My BIGGEST Academic Regret

Everything that happened in high school was horrible. Well the teachers weren’t that bad, but I was–correction, I will always be–too stubborn and stupid to do anything right.

I always had a hard time of being motivated to do well on my schoolwork. I did not had straight As, as I suppose to. I did not participate in my high school activities and so forth. I pretty much sounded like a lazy millennial that many people stereotyped about. In a way, I was lazy and still am. I keep having a time tough to stay motivated all the time. Truth be told, I don’t know what TRULY motivates me. I’m weird like that.

When I was applying for colleges/universities, I must admit that I didn’t do much homework/research about it. I knew some basics, but I still feel like I ruined my academics and my future career. I did got in in some colleges like Otis College of Arts, but, like many other future freshman, the cost was too much to for my parents. However, I had to attend a nearest college to get my AA degree to transfer. I’m not saying that I don’t like the college I’m currently taking. I love it! I just can’t shake this feeling that I lost something special or meaning in my life.

So this is my biggest academic regret. I did not attend to a regular four-year college because I was unprepared, unmotivated, lazy student.

Huh. College is going to be fun.
