I’ve made a decision.
For the past few months I’ve been questioning my decision to major in English and whether I want to continue on with it. I’ve reached a compromise with myself.
I am going to take this next semester off from UNM in order to become a certified massage therapist. The course is nine months long and it is something I can do in order to make money while I finish my degree at UNM. I’ve also decided that rather than double major in English and Art I am going to change my secondary major to Anthropology. This is more for my personal interest than anything else.
I want to do graphic novels, but I also want to be able to have a “real” career should I need it. The massage therapy is a back up, something I can do if I really need to. I think this is what is best for me, I think it’ll help me actually achieve my goals.
