...to becoming a Psychology major. I've got my sign-off from the Psych. Dept., now I need to get one from English Lit. then I hand the change form in to the Registrar's office.
I'm feeling...odd...about this. My self-conception for years - heck my blog's name! - is that of a reader, a Lit. major. Even for those two decades when I was between schools, I never questioned that if I ever graduated, it would be with a degree in English Lit.
But I'm feeling really excited about the decision. It feels right. It feels good.
I knew I had to change when I was looking at the Fall catalog and most of the classes that really interested me were psychology classes. Many more of them grabbed my attention than the English classes (though I am taking one that really got me - Historical Criticism of Children's Literature. Doesn't that sound yummy?). And I admitted to myself that the same thing had happened for the Summer schedule as well.
And another plus is it won't take me any longer to graduate.
I can't wait for the Summer session to start! Developmental Psychology, here I come!
