I did what I enjoyed. I'm not someone that can excel when I'm doing something I don't like. I can't fake it. I've always been attracted the arts and social sciences so I dabbled a bit in a few different areas.
I was a Philosophy major to start, switched to Psychology, then switched to English. I ended up going back to Psychology and that's been my area for the past six years. My minor switched a few times as well but I settled on an English minor.
The job opportunities for someone with a BA in Psychology are virtually non-existent, but I knew that going in. I always knew that I was going to have to get at least a Masters degree and that was fine with me.
I guess my thinking was that it would take a lot more time, money, and work to be successful in the subject I chose, but it was worth it to do something that I actually love.
