During the break, I did some serious reflection on my time here at this university and the remaining time I have. There were many reasons why I wanted to transfer into Music Open Studies from Lyric Theater but there was also some hesitancy. As a current junior, I was worried that changing my major so late in the game would make me track back to the beginning, but after having the important discussion with the advisor, I realized how much I wanted and needed it.
Coming to college, growing up, and becoming an adult made me realize a lot of things. One of those things is that it is your life and you’re the one who should be in charge of it. It is important to think about the things that make you happy and what is best for you. I found myself not being fulfilled where I was. It was difficult to see beyond the situation I was in, but having an incredible support system helped me make my big decision. I am currently taking classes from my new major and enjoy it. There is a sense of freedom, blossoming, and true bliss doing something that you want to do. I am excited to finish my time here doing something I feel where I can grow and get the education I desire.
