UNI: What should I study? Its's my choice! (I should have known).

Updated on November 1, 2015

Uni? YES.

That was my first though since I was a kiddo, it was a plan for the distant future not a instant decision, but you know the day was reached.

When I was 17 i was freaking scared because all my friends seem to be very sure about their Uni and College plans. Me? Not at all.

While I was in high school I took random clases with no plans, I tried to take classes with the best teachers, but the day to apply for Uni Admission reached, I took my computer and start to look for options. When I started there were a lot of choices so I discard options based in classes, job options,money and at the last place, what I wanted to do.

Yes, that's a way to do it and I highly recommend it, But there is a little little little mistake here: priorities. I should have known that my preferences where first.

Now days, we are all bumped with technology, outfits, make up, hills, places to go, nice houses and cars. And of course we all want them, which is fine, but how will we achieve them if We are not able to go work cause we are done of it?.

I wanted to study engineering and sciences because it's challenging(GOD IT IS), also Nutrition, Theatrical Performance, Writing and other options but as far as I remember those were the "favorites". So at the end I took engineering.

Days like yesterday I question everything, the reason i took it, who was involved in MY decision, and the expectations I had. I don't regret it at all, it's just that there are these days where I wonder the real reason of my decisions.

I think that I did it because, just as I said, it sound challenging, i kindda liked chemistry and the pay thing is good. I wish I knew that it would be this hard. I knew it, but You never know the whole history 'til You are there.

Im not a certified person but based in my experience, my ups and downs and my good and bad moments through Uni life my biggest suggestion is, That it's only your decision. It is not about taking the hardest degree, or to be so rounded by smart people, it's not about to satisfy people expectations. Its about to decide what makes you happy and brings you peace.

Most of the time we think about money and the work environment, but before, there are 4,5 or more years in the way and they should make you happy. We are so focus on succeed that simply forget that this is the time where We are young and where We should create experiences.

If you are wondering the reason why i wrote this, is because yesterday was a harsh day and this year has been WILD. I'm happy with my decision but I forget that this is the time of my life and Im spending a LOT of time being worry, stressed and kinda sad. So the last paragraph was pretty much for the girls and also guys who are about to jump in to that experience, but also for me.

Engineering is a really hard but beautiful way, so if You want to do it, just do it. If Med school or Law school is what you want, give it a try. If you have no idea of what to do, discard options but based on PRIORITIES please :).

After a really personal, intense and full of suggestions kinnda article, I'll leave you a nice quote. Thank you for reading me. x
