Ok so.. I have my A.A. degree, and I’m studying Nutrition at a state university now. I met with my adviser to make sure I was on track with taking the classes I needed, etc..
Well, I need to take some bio and chem classes before I can take ANY nutrition classes. Ok, fine, no problem. But my adviser just looked at me. She sighed, and then asked me, “are you SURE this is what you want to major in?”
She told me the classes I need to take are impossible to get into, because the campus is so impacted.
After about 20 mins of her talking down to me and discouraging me, I left crying. Yep. My 28-year old self was sitting on a bench in the middle of campus, crying and calling my older sister.
My older sister told me to switch my major to a B.A. in anything – Sociology, Liberal Studies – just to finish and graduate with ANY degree in 2 years.
My Fiance told me to stick with the Nutrition major and continue trying to get my B.S. He said if it’s what I truly want to do with my life, I shouldn’t give up.
But… look, I’m 28 years old. I feel like I’ve really fallen behind the world and should just have ANY degree by now so I can have a “real job.” But honestly, what the hell am I gonna do wiht a BA in Liberal Studies? (No, I don’t want to teach.)
So I don’t know what to do. I feel completely lost, and deflated. All of my motivation is gone. I feel stupid for ever wanting to try to get my B.S. in Nutrition.
I’m looking for any suggestions, or advice, or even maybe a hug. 🙁
