My advice to people that are going to college and trying to decide on a major is first and foremost do what you enjoy doing. And sometimes you’re going to realize that along the way it’s not what you enjoy doing. You know, it’s been glorified on television or through peer groups. And it’s not actually what you want to do. And don’t be afraid to change your major. One extra year, two extra years are going to payoff in the long run when you’re waking up in the morning and saying, you know, I love what I do, I love what I do.
