I had a long conversation with my dad last night, and I came to the following conclusion:
I now have a life plan.
It’s probably not definite and I’ll change my mind a million times.
But as of today, here’s the plan:
Summer plan: work for my dad’s PR agency + tutor at synagogue (as opposed to being a camp counselor)
College major: Journalism
College minor: Hebrew Studies (it’s a new potential minor different from Jewish Studies in that there’s more of a focus on language and literature and less on history and religion)
Life career: something in PR, perhaps? Maybe PR for a Jewish organization?
From what I’ve seen of PR, it seems like journalism with a purpose + creativity. That sounds a lot like me.
I won’t make any transferring decisions (into the journalism school) until at least next year, since it’s a big decision and I want to make sure it’s the right one.
But it feels good to have at least a preliminary idea of my potential future.
