I hate the beginning of school. Especially the first day when the teacher hands you the syllabus and says, Look at everything you have to get done in the next 4 months! It totally sends me over the edge. I think that's why I have a slight breakdown at the beginning of every semester and desperately want to change my major. Let's just say that 4 years into college, this is probably not the situation I should be in. It drives me bonkers! So I spent a couple hours today looking at what I need to do to graduate (as fast as possible) what I would need to graduate in something other than English (a possibility that has never actually taken hold in my brain) and considering what in the world I'm going to do next. After hours spent in frustration trying to plan the rest of my life (i have to plan, it's a compulsion) I have figured out a *tentative* plan:

Continue in the English Major
Add an Editing Minor
Graduate in 2 years
Get into an Interior Design Program

This is where things get a little fuzzy. I looked at LDS Business College and the Art Institute of Utah and I don't know exactly where things will go. The Art Institute is going to send me some more information and if I can actually get started on the design program while doing my English Degree (and working) so much the better. Needless to say....this is 10000X more overwhelming than that stinking syllabus they give us at the beginning of the semester, but I will get it all day at a time. Wish me luck!

Good Luck!! Way to go, that sounds like an awesome plan to me... and it's so much less stressful to take things one day at a time. :)
