I've been thinking about changing my major. A lot. I really like the idea of teaching little kids, but I don't really like the idea of going into Elementary Education ... So, I've been thinking and praying about it. Like I mentioned before, I have sooo many interests. It is way hard for me to make decisions, especially when it comes to the major things of life. Today, it kind of just came together. I was talking to a new friend that got her call to Chile and she was talking about her fear of losing the language after she got home. I agreed ... I don't want to become fluent and then just have it be for nothing. I want to speak the language that I already love for the rest of my life.
So, I think I'm going to be majoring in Spanish Education ... and minoring in English Education. Does it sound like a good plan? I think it really, really is right. I prayed about it and felt super good. I mean, I have until after my mission to really hunker down ... but I think that is what I am going to do. It's funny, because I think this is almost exactly the same thing my dad did (except he had english ed as his major and spanish ed as his minor). I am following in his footsteps.
In between writing this post and being kind of excited for this change, I mapped out what my potential grad plan would be with Spanish Ed ... it is soooo perfect! When I was sitting down to do my El Ed plan, I just didn't feel really wonderful about it. But I feel so good about this. I don't know. It's kind of an impulsive decision. But I feel good. Yeah ... random blurb.
I CAN'T GET OVER HOW PERFECT THIS FITS!!
I love this. I love this. I am passionate about Spanish. I am passionate about teaching. I am passionate about English. I am so in love with this life plan. I am sooooo in love with it! Yes. Heavenly Father does answer prayers in his own time and in his own way!
