Class to Closet: Spring Semester Talk

Spring Semester Talk

I cannot believe that it's time for another semester. Awhile ago I opened up to you talking about how I was so confused with the direction of my life and had no clue what I wanted to do as a career. I was certain I was suppose to be a teacher, however when I got into the classroom, I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I spent hours on hours at two different elementary schools and did enjoy the time I spent there, but for some reason I did not see myself doing it for the rest of my life. I don't have a great deal of patience. I am unable to act like a mother to 25+ kids at all times. I do not agree with common core. 

So with all of this information I sat down and made pros and cons lists. I figured that teaching wasn't for me, and I was okay with it. My parents were okay with it. Sure, I basically wasted two semesters of college (I am now a whole year behind...) but it's better I figured it out now instead of 10 years from now.

Well anyways, I now am majoring in Communications and minoring in business. It's going to take me five years total, but if all goes well, I'll be graduating the same year as Tyler. I have to move to a different school in the fall, in a different city. There's a lot changing, however I'm excited. 

I get asked all the time what I'm going to do with a communications degree. Well if you know me in my 'online life', aka what I enjoy doing, you know I love social media. I blog, I have a YT channel, I run a twitter & insta all for my business. I enjoy doing that. So maybe I'll work social media for a company. I can also see myself in the Public Relations department for a company. I would love to work in PR for a fashion or fitness company. 

My biggest thing about education vs communications, was that education was SO narrow. The only thing I could do with an edu degree is teach. However with communications, I can do so much. I'm excited for this spring semester because I'm taking communication classes that will put me in the right direction.

What are you majoring in? What did you major in? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Happy new year, darling!

  2. I think working for a social media company would be fun

  3. Nicole,

    You are wise to do what you're doing! I didn't even declare a major until I was a junior and chose Fashion Merchandising. I was between that and elementary education for years. Now I own a children's store (ha!) and also run my fashion blog and personal styling business. Needless to say you cannot go wrong with business/communication! Those were both my minors and always come in handy :)

    Best of luck,
