In a time where the word "literally" gets overused, I can say that literally every day I have a conversation about the topic at least once. Often, it is the first thing mentioned by my parents when I get home from school or work. If I have to ride in a car with them anywhere, I know I have to mentally prepare myself for the onslaught of questions and lectures.
I can truly say I have reached the point in the college selection process where I am just feeling 100% done with all of it. Sometimes I wish I could just throw a dart at a map and just go to the college that is nearest to where it lands. Even after touring four different colleges, I honestly feel apathetic about every one of the options.
I envy the students who have known they are going to be engineers since they were fresh out of the womb because they don't have to make a difficult decision, they just attend Missouri S&T. For someone like me who doesn't know exactly what they want to do when they get to college, the options seem limitless and overwhelming. So when my parents ask me about where I want to go, I usually give them the tired response of "I don't know."
I know that I will eventually figure it out and I'm sure that where ever I go I will enjoy it and get the most out of it. But right now it is weighing on me so much, and I'm just glad I am able to vent about all of this right here on my blog.
