Hmmmm …… Where do I fit in, what is my passion?
What is the best way to learn about one’s self ? I thought I knew me, my likes, dislikes, my passion!
Until last summer, everything I once thought to be true was dragged from under my feet. My university journey began with me studying the sciences, I was to pursue a major in Environmental chemistry. I was anxious because my choice had been made after I had given up on paediatrics and Chemical engineering. I went to school daily because I had to, because I was determined to do well – failure was not an option. With each passing month of the semester my interest faded; I no longer wanted to go to classes or attend tutorials. At ending of each class, I felt like I had been awarded an Olympic medal. Finals came and went, I had gotten a C average (first ever in life!), I was humiliated, I didn’t even tell my mom.
The second semester was even worse! I failed two courses and my GPA plummeted into an oblivion.
Fast forward to summer! …. I traveled for the first time, and with each passing day I learnt something new about me. I realized I loved languages (I’ll fill you guys in later), I love to travel and meet new people…. food, music, politics …. everything but what I had dedicated my life to THE SCIENCES. Emotionally I was a wreck……. I dreaded returning home because was unable to register for courses within the faculty because of my grades. So, I decided to look for courses outside of my faculty. God was definitely on my side because, I had no idea what I was doing. When I returned home, I dived into my classes with vigor!…… I jumped at the second chance, and I’m glad I did …… GPA improved,,, loving the classes ,,, still trying to figure out who I am and what I like ….. maybe this will help … who knows …….
PS: I’m new at this ……
