I’ve mentioned before about my quarter-life crisis, and how I didn’t think it was over.
In this week’s episode, I questioned my decision on majoring in Business.
I’m a business student, and contrary to popular belief, you don’t learn much in business classes. It’s just a longer, slightly more formal-toned version of everything you learnt in high school business.
So why did I do it?
- Because I’m stupid.
- Because I come from a family of computer engineers and needed to prove a point
- Because I couldn’t find a Literature course near where I live
- Because I heard a lot of things about unemployed Literature majors
- Because I didn’t want to wait tables*
- Because dorms scare the hell out of me and the campus was close to my house
- Because I sound really smart when I tell people what my major is
- Because it seemed easy
- Because I’m really stupid
I don’t think I will be utilizing my fancy-shmancy Business degree in the future. If I end up analyzing companies’ strategic intents for the rest of my life, I think I might have to kill myself!
Proof that Business was not a good idea is my bad decision making skills, something crucial for managers.
But what if this isn’t a onetime thing? What if I’m destined for a life of bad decision making? What if I end up a failure?!
And more importantly, all that time and money could have been better utilized doing something more productive!
So I just wasted thousands of dollars on a degree that I will probably never use.
Well, I guess it still looks really neat on paper.
*I don’t mean to say that waiting tables is a bad job; I mean that I don’t really have the patience for it. I’ve sat next to some really weird customers. Kudos to you if you do wait tables. I respect you.
