What to do? And can I do this?
1 year ago · · Stress,
I'm a science student, or was a few months ago. In just a few days, I will actually leave science behind and begin my studies in marketing. This terrifies me since I lack an entrepreneurial approach and vision. I've always disliked the corporate world since I was a child. It appears to be overwhelming. How am I supposed to withstand three years of marketing simply to acquire my bachelor's degree? I'm not creative, I'm an introvert, and I despise marketing (this is merely my stance, and I apologise to anyone who felt offended reading this). I'm OK with individuals working in this industry, but it simply doesn't feel like it was meant for me). I'm an observer; I enjoy observing, researching, and analysing things, which is perhaps why I'm drawn to the subject of science. I want to give it a go in the hopes of discovering a new talent, but I can't help but be sceptical to be a marketing student.
No, I cannot change my bachelor's degree programme. I couldn't drop out since I didn't want to disappoint my parents, but the administration here won't allow me change my course. I'm in a dilemma since I'm not sure what's best for me or what route I should choose. I truly enjoy psychology, but no matter what subject I do, my interest in psychology and criminology will remain. And I did try to apply to be in the program but I was rejected and I'm okay with it. Because I know I can still study it myself, but I'm at a loss as to what to do with the course that has been assigned to me. I don't want to come to a halt in the middle of this route one day. What concerns me is whether I will be able to manage it. Will this path have an impact on my mental health?
