Who am I?

Who am I? I was thinking about this question as I went into the shower. I thought to myself about how I’m a sophomore in college now, and how I need to decide on a major soon, which will end up being a decision on what career I want. My current path is the Business Management or Bachelor’s in Business Administration degree.

I’ve been thinking about consumerism and how people consume so many things. It doesn’t seem possible to live a simple life. It seems like we must consume, because we want an easy, efficient, and timely way to do things. I was watching a movie by PBS called Merchants Of Cool. This documentary was about how businesses market to the young audience. They take the consumers money, and use it to make more. Now from one perspective, that’s great. I would be able to make a lot of money. I know that I could be making tons of it now if I put more effort into being a Gordon Gekko. Now I didn’t watch Wall Street, but I’ve heard the famous line “Greed is good.” Or I can take the noble route, and not work for big businesses. The thing is though, if I do something, or if there’s something I want to do, I want it to be big. Now I can’t say that that has always been my fortune in life, but I do strive on trying (or wanting) to do something to the best or maximum that it can go.

I can’t seem to make a good decision on what I want to do in life. I’m always at a crossroad. I would rather not like to wait and see, but I think I may have to.
