Looking Back at my College Course

When I was around 7 years old, I wanted to be an interior designer or an architect. I remember designing rooms and houses. I loved looking at house designs and architectural structures. I read countless design magazines featuring Β luminaire lightingΒ and other designs. But eventually, when I was in high school, I was too afraid to try this course since I wasn’t good in drawing.

When I was in high school, I wanted to be a writer. I loved writing poems and short stories. I also wrote lyrics to songs. I submitted my works to the school annual journal and I joined essay writing contests.

Eventually, when it was time to decide which college course to take, I ended up taking a course not related to what I loved doing. I was unsure so I took a “safe” course, business administration.

Now, as I look back, if I weren’t so afraid to take chances then, I would probably have taken Β a course in literature.

But I know that the Lord has plans for me, and whatever happened was the best for me.

How about you? If you were given the chance to go back, would you change the college course that you took?



  1. For sure, you are where you’re supposed to be. You didn’t have to take a course in Literature to be where you are now, right? πŸ™‚ You are influencing a lot of people through your blog, and I think that does give you your purpose in life.

  2. I agree with Pepper Ms. Cris, πŸ™‚
    Well, in my case, I took up Nursing and by God’s grace I am a licensed nurse now. However, there is only less job opportunity for us here that’s why in order to earn enough, nurses should go abroad. That doesn’t fit me now because I’m a mom and I don’t like leaving my son for that. I should have chosen Education course or something else.

  3. i am just thankful that God is in charge of my life πŸ™‚

    thanks for replying to my post. i appreciate it.

  4. Many of us go through this ordeal – choosing a field that seems “safe” and “lucrative” over something we’re really passionate about. I made the mistake twice. When I finally got the chance to take the course I really like, I had a blast.! Never mind that I graduated college at the age of 24.

    Whenever someone asks me for advice about what course to take in college, I always refer to what Dr. Jose Rizal wrote in one of his essays. That we should always consider our inclination and our aptitude.
