Storytelling sometimes dips into exaggeration. There was a YouTube video on that mentioned college majors. My immediate thought was, “I had 10 majors.” Well, at least that is what I have said over the years. I don’t think that is true.
Here is a list:
- Business Administration
College was a long time ago. I am not certain about this list.
Absolutely, Philosophy and Business Administration are definitely on the list as I graduated with degrees in these areas. I know for a fact I was an art major for a semester because it was the only way I was permitted to take the 3-D Design class I wanted to take.
The others listed above I think I had declared at some point along the way, but I cannot be certain.
I went to college to be an accountant. I am certain that is because my sister had been an accounting major and it seemed like something I would like. I took Accounting 101 (or whatever it was called at my school). It was 8:00 in the morning class. It was the only class I had on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I rarely made the class.
I had heard the professor did a thorough review for the final on the final class period. I dragged myself to class that day. He collected a project that had been assigned. I went to the professor after class and stated I had missed the last class and would he provide me that assignment. He shared that we had had a few weeks to complete this. He then checked his attendance roster and announced I did not attend class very often. Awkward. He gave me the project and asked me to have it on his desk by 2:00 that afternoon.
When all was said and done, I earned one of the three As that semester. I was good at accounting. I was bored silly, however. I could not envision myself doing that for the rest of my life. Looking back, I think accounting would have actually been a very good profession for me.
I am rather certain I maneuvered through economics and finance as majors. It seems that psychology was something I considered for a minute or two as well. Even so, it wasn’t 10 majors unless I have forgotten some.
