Just random thoughts

Do you know the feeling that there are so many options open to you, you just freeze and do nothing?
I get that feeling a lot, even when thinking about writing something on this blog. Should it be something related to my studies? Something about engineering, physics, maths, business generally is a good read for me. But there are a plethora of options to write about, so I end up writing about nothing.

The same with studying: before I picked my current area (Industrial Engineering and Management) I just postponed making a choice. I was held back a year in middle-school (or high school if you will) because I didn't see the point of it all, much less had an idea of what I was going to study. Then started to study physical therapy for about 3 days until I realised it wasn't much of a challenge for me. I spent the rest of the semester studying Communication and Multimedia Design, which was basically what I did in my spare time so I decided it wasn't worth the tuition fee and quit that as well.

A friend of mine pointed me to my current study and even though it took a while, and some effort, I found it interesting. The biggest hurdle to take was the Maths I had to master which in general was given in such an abstract form that it just scared me off. The more engineering and business subjects are generally easier to follow but there always is that annoying voice, questioning if I wouldn't be better off with a different area of expertise. This is exacerbated by all the interesting articles and books I read in my spare time: maybe I should've become a doctor, a neuro-biologist, an evolutionary-biologist/psychologist, a psychiatrist, a musician and the list goes on and on.

Do any of you ever get that feeling?

  3. I know exactly what your talking about. These options are overwhelming sometimes, but really our reactions to those options and how we decide to deal with them is that defines us... or at least, that's how I feel about it :)
