Ever Wonder What Your Major Should Really Be?

Major Should Really Be

It’s a known fact that choosing a college major is hard. You hear people say that what you study in college doesn’t actually matter, but as a doe-eyed freshman, you think that’s a load of crap. You know you’re making a potentially life-altering decision, and you’re probably going to be hungover while doing it. That alone is enough to scare the shit out of any normal human being.

That was me four years ago, and now, graduation is a mere 29 days away. As I sit here about to begin a weeklong (read: lifelong) routine of sobbing, swigging wine, and sobbing more, I want to reflect a little bit on my time in college–reflect not only on what I’ve done, but also on what I’ve learned. I’m not talking about that Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts strewn across a $250,000 piece of paper. I’m talking about those subjects that aren’t so much academic per se, but might as well should be by now. Will we all graduate one day with a major (maybe two if we’re ambitious) which proves we know something beyond a 101 class? Yes. But should I really be majoring in all these? Absolutely.

Drunk but not in love

(@DrunkNOTinLove) is a die-hard Splenda addict who requires a constant supply of caffeine and male attention to make it through the day. After graduating with her degree in Economics, she now focuses her energy on adding a "Home" to her degree title by perfecting the "intelligent drunk," and conning a banker into marrying her one day. Originally from New England, she is a hardcore Boston sports fan, but only when boys are around. Almost all of her calories consumed Thursday - Saturday (and the occasional Tuesday) are from $7 bottles of Yellowtail Moscato, and in no way, shape, or form is she fazed by this. All forms of hate mail and date party inquiries can be sent to drunkbutnotinlove@gmail.com
