That's unfortunate :( Maybe when you're older you can tho? I know that here if you want to teach private school you just need a masters, and if you want to teach public school you can have a bachelors in anything and you need a certification. So when you're older you could get certified and work towards retirement as a teacher, since it's a bit more chill and you can do it at an older age.

Not doing medicine but know quite a few friends who are in UNSW. They say the content is relatively interesting (anatomy, virology?? Something about diseases I dunno) but they're also shit tonnes of bogus subjects like professional medical practices where you get lectures on being ethical and shit. The thing most of them enjoy is placements - tbh I hardly see them anymore cos they're always at hospital/clinics during the week, observing what doctors do and such.

>tfw can't decide between geology, linguistics, and medicine

I'm in America, medicine is so fucking competitive and I'm going to admit 'm a low-effort kind of guy who submits is work a minute or two before deadline, but I have this desire to physically help people if you know what I mean.

that desire is probably why I'm considering linguistics, intending to be a professor if I do that as I've been interested in that for a while.

geology was just my backpack STEM when I started getting scared of medicine

fuck man I gotta decide soon too

Idk, mate. I loved it but more and more, it was making me depressed and anxious.

I recently saw a former, fellow philosophy major. It was 2am and we were both at some 24hr taco place. I was there alone, having just finished drinking with new, mostly male friends, and he showed up with three "blondes", having just left some fraternity party; he's in a fraternity. It's funny to watch how he's become more and more "fratty" over the years. That's amplified by the fact that we're from an over-enrolled, West Coast, public school. He's graduating this quarter and going to law school in the Fall. I was somewhat happy for him but I won't lie: I felt a twinge of jealousy. He reminds me of many like him whom I've met before: ambitious, vibrant, so full of life. I used to like people like that, but then I found out that many of them are manipulative and driven only by the material. But maybe I'm assuming too much. Meanwhile, I'll be staying another year here. Still very much alone.

I often wonder how the other half lives. I don't know what happened to my self-esteem, my confidence in what I was doing.

Sorry to just spill all of that out but I needed it.

I keep wondering whether I've already missed out, whether I've had or am having enough fun. It used to make me want to cry when older folks told me "College is the best time of your life! It only gets harder from now on!" These days, I just tell myself that they're wrong, that thing's will get better, but I don't know who was really telling the bigger lie.

math is literally the most beautiful thing in the world and the only real science in existence, you probably don't dislike math, you need to actually study it from the very beginning, strip every possible interpretation away and just see mathematical objects, it's much easier that way, and then you will realize how and why everything works, stay away from calculus problems and focus on concepts and definitions
