When I came to UCM I was originally a photography major. Before I even began the program, I knew it wasn’t for me. I told my advisor about my interests and she suggested PR. I enrolled in the intro class that semester. It was the hardest intro class I’ve taken in my three years here. (I’ve taken about 5 or so). After the class I wasn’t completely sold but I never wanted to be that person who was undecided as a junior. So I kept enrolling in PR courses and now here I am, a junior with only a few courses remaining in the program. Have I learned a lot? Yes. Am I completely and irrevocably passionate about it? Not so much.
This realization is slightly frightening and sad to me. I still try my best in class and on my work because of course I wanna be good at what I do, but I just don’t have that passion for it the way that I have a passion for dance. (But realistically, dance is not a winning career). I just think about my future in PR and can’t really imagine myself loving my job. I really hope and pray that I will find some aspect of my job that will keep me going or even just find a job that I like that maybe isn’t completely about PR. In no way is this blog intended to sound sad/depressing/pathetic but it is a true insight into my thoughts and reflections on my own choice of education. I know there are other students, maybe not in PR, but in college who have dealt with or are dealing with this realization. I just hope those of us without that burning passion can find it in our future somewhere.
