After only two easy, but time consuming, homework assignments in my Calculus course I'm starting to realize, more and more, that I don't want to major in Computer Science. The more I think about the mathematic applications that might apply within said major, the more I think I'll hate it and just end up burning out or wanting to do something else. Granted, there may not be any real parallels to the math I'm doing now and the math that will be required of me in the future if I do something related to Computer Science, but if there are then I really don't see any long-term joys in pursuing this path.

I've always been told you should find something you enjoy doing and pursue it, that way you feel good about what you're doing and feel that whatever it is, it's more than just a job. If this premise is true, then Math under Computer Science doesn't fit. I'm never happy when I'm doing Math, even when I know how to do it because it takes multitudes of time to do some of the simplest equations, functions, et cetera. I lack the patience to continue with it. If Computer Science requires this course and four more thereafter, it's time I come to the conclusion that Computer Science is not for me.

It's time to finalize on a major that centers around things I enjoy doing. I'm not sure what that is right now, but I'm sure I'll figure it out in time.

no matter what you want your major to be, you will eventually come across it...i did during my jr. yr in high school....i know that you will find something that you want to do for the rest of your life....

But isn't that what college is for? Finding out what you want to do?

There's a Xenosaga animation that's out. XD I've only seen the first ep because I haven't played far enough into the game for the other episodes, ha ha ha!
