As an english major, did you ever go through bouts of really doubting that decision? Not because other people like to belittle it, because you felt yourself fall a little bit out of love with reading and writing?
Not really, just because I was that weird kid who knew she wanted to be an English major when she was like twelve and never doubted that. Did I get tired of it sometimes? Sure. Look through my ‘grad school’ tag and it’ll give you a pretty good idea of the amount of bitching and moaning about school I do on a regular basis, which might seem like a lot for someone who genuinely really loves what she does. And I think that’s the important thing to remember: just because you love something and want to do it doesn’t mean you’re going to love it 100% of the time or that you’re never going to have to work on an assignment you don’t like or have a professor you can’t stand. That’s life. Gotta take the good with the bad and find ways to remind yourself that you do love what you do, even if it’s not always perfect.
