I started school at New Haven University because I thought I wanted to be an FBI agent. I lasted about 2 months then transferred to Colorado State University, who at the time had the best vet school in the country (I think Cornell is #1 now) 4 years into it with a 3.9 GPA, I had my internship with a large animal vet and realized I didn't want to be a vet anymore. So for a year I lived out of a tiny car in New Zealand and just traveled and did outdoor recreation. Then I moved to Suva, Fiji for 8 months and was deported after the military coup got violent. I found myself back in my teeny, tiny home town in the Colorado Rocky Mountains on a horse ranch. I am now going BACK to school studying Sports Medicine and have 1 more semester left!!!
I loved every single step of the journey so far, and no matter what you do you will learn something along the way. I know 50 year olds that have just now figured out what they want to do! We think that we have to have our whole lives planed out and are supposed to be lived by the cookie-cutter "accepted" rules. Follow your heart, and remember that as you change and grow so will your goals and interests! You are never locked into one option. You are so smart to just get your gen eds out of the way. But don't stress about what happens after that, you will know when you get there. So EXCITING! Good luck with all of it!
