When we were younger, the thoughts of the future were always boyfriends/girlfriends, getting married, getting a job etc. But has anyone really thought about college and gave a major much thought? If you look back, your high school years were probably the only part of time when you thought about what you want to major in or do with your life (being seriously and practical).
The future doesn’t seem as scary when you’re small. Probably because you don’t take your future into much thought seriously when you’re at a young age. At high school years, the thoughts come all at once and most students get stressed over the decisions they have to make.
