Why do adults think “So what’s your major? Oh, and what are you going to do with that?” is acceptable small talk
What am I going to do with my degree? Hang it on the wall and cry, probably
LOL - or you can answer - use my english degree and passion for learning to end up working in film, media, and tech to become more successful than anyone I know with a business degree… just like 80% of the other liberal arts majors that I know who are designing video game backgrounds, composing music for film and games, running their own companies, etc.
Following your passion helps you learn proactive problem solving, how to work fast and efficient, and how to prioritize to be successful. If I can do it for my own art I can do it for you. Boom.
Don’t let the lie that Liberal Arts = Poverty continue on.
