Conclusions on my career choice

It’s funny. I’ve been struggling with that tedious decision of ‘what to study after high school’ for two years now, complaining that it was inhuman to make a teen choose what he or she wanted to do for the rest of her/his life at such a young age, telling myself I didn’t need to worry about that, and worrying still, and going from Meteorology to History, going through Psicology and even Enology in the middle.

And now that I’ve taken a ‘final decision’, if that even exists, everything seems so normal, so natural. It almost feels as if every minute, every second, I’ve spent thinking about this subject, was there for a reason from the very beginning.

Now, when people ask me, I can proudly say ‘yes, I’m studying Politics next year’, and feel completely used to that choice.

Deciding an' stuff

I still feel I was forced to face some stuff I wasn’t supposed to at my age, and that I went deeper in analysing myself than I was intended to all along. But I’m still happy about all this.

But, if you ask me how I got to the conclusion that Politics was the best option for me, I wont say anything about having good job opportunities, or it being interesting to study. All my options were like that.

No. For me, the question that made me get to this decision was the following:

In what field of study and work can I rest assured I will NEVER get bored?

As naturally as breathing, the answer came to me: Politics.

And thus, in a few weeks, I’m gonna go sign up for Buenos Aires’ University, to start next year.

And, even though this took me long to reflect over, I still know this isn’t my final decision. I can still change my mind as many times as I want to, and study something else.

There’s no need to worry so much.

I’m writing this, partly because I’m bored at school cause the teacher is absent, and partly because I’m sure there’s a lot of people out there still struggling with this tremendous decision.

Relax. Take e-ea-sy.

You can do it. Just let it flow.

Thanks for reading,

  1. hey ! I just came across your blog. I am new comer here on wordpress.com.
    I really like your style of writing. Very casual and understandable !
    I was in the same situation as you were ‘choosing what to study!’ … but now I decided it and finalized it. :)

    I thought I am like so not focussed about studying but the thing is sometimes even when we want to do something, we do not get the right time and the motivation. Once we kinda get a clue, everything sets right :)

    Thanks for this post !
    good luck with politics ! :D

    • Hello there! Thank you for reading, and for the compliment. I myself am pretty new around here, still getting used to how things work. Also, my writing style changes dramatically when I switch to writing in english (something I realised only recently), but I’m glad it’s still easy on the eye.

      You are completely right! Sometimes, lack of motivation can lead to lack of action. Take my lazy self as an example not to follow on that!

      You are very welcome, and thank you.
      The two posts you’ve writen ’till now are pretty interesting. I expect to see you around here more often.

      Take care!

      • OH sure !! and thanks :)

        I am just a beginner… all thanks to my writing class at college. I realized its fun to write :)

        And yes I will be writing more. But I am busy with my college stuff so it will take some time for me to like take some time out for blogging. But they will be definitely up soon ;)

  2. Think it’s wonderful you have came to a decision so early in life Mila, and from reading your posts, I can see your passion for politics. Think after much consideration your choice is wise.
    Have to agree, politics would never be boring

    • Thank you for reading and replying, and sorry I took so long to do so!
      Yes, it is one of my many passions, and they do say you have to be passionate about something to do it right, so hopefully I’ll be able to survive there.
      Seeya ^^

  3. I think it’s a great choice! You are truly passionate about this I can see! The world needs more like you in such a responsible position! You could chase me with politics. Never been my thing (except in relationships because then it’s unavoidable :-) )

    • I’m not too sure what ‘chasing you with politics’ is, but sure! xD. I don’t know whether I should be a politician, do periodism, or go for counselling, but well, we’ll see.
      Thanks for reading and replying, and I’m so sorry it took me so long!

  4. ‘Chasing me with it’ means I definitely don’t want to do it! Whatever you do follow your heart! The heart is a funny thing. Mine has the tendency to change it’s feelings a lot:-) No problem! Have a wonderful day!!
