These past few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind. Everyone is back from summer vacation and it's the 4th week of school, so classes are really picking up. Football season is in full swing, and I've decided to change career paths (maybe.)
No, I know. Same. If you had asked me where I wanted to be in the next five years, I would have said: New York City, working as a journalist for NBC and/or the host of the Tonight Show. Or I would have said: In a big city somewhere working for a sports team as a reporter and host. (Lofty goals, I know.)
Now, if you ask me what my five year plan is... I honestly have no idea. I've been toying around with the idea of pursuing a Masters in Political Science or potentially even law school ever since I got back from the Middle East. The more and more I've been thinking about it, the less disadvantages I see with giving it a try. Politics and news is why I got into journalism in the first place, I'm young and can move anywhere, I have the extra money in my college fund... Why not?
I'm scared and have doubts all the time. I graduate in 3 months and I'm changing career plans. None of my internships have been designed to help me get into graduate programs for political science or law school. What in the world am I doing?!
It's been a lot to think about, and it will continue to be a lot to think about until I make a decision, which has to be soon in terms of GRE tests and LSAT preparations, not to mention applying for other jobs just in case!
At the end of the day, this is the first time in a long time that I have been excited for the future. And that's incredibly important to realize.
