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.
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.
