failing like never before


Change of Majors

College freshmen are always told that on average, a college student will change their major at least twice (or something like that, please don't quote me on this). I always thought that I would never change my major; I liked my choice, I had always wanted to be an engineer, and I thought I knew what I wanted. But over the past year, its occurred to me that I have no idea why I decided to pick electrical engineering, and the more EE classes I take, the more I realize how little I actually like the subject; the thought of having to take another electromagnetics class doesn't exactly make me want to dance a jig, and while solid state physics can be interesting sometimes (thanks to my awesome professor), I can't see myself working with wave equations and Fermi-Dirac statistics for the rest of my life. Oh, and plus, I am no longer a math king. Really more of a math peasent then anything else, which is definetely not a good thing when I'm in a major that has so many math requirements that its only two classes short of a math minor.

I came to an epiphany several weeks ago that my major simply was not making me happy, and that it was time for me to change. I've chosen Computer Science and Engineering as my new major, although it remains to be seen whether or not my application into the Computer Science department will be accepted.
