So, there are a few questions I've been asked like five hundred times over the course of the semester. All my college friends know what I'm talking about. They are as follows: "Where are you from?", "Do you know Michelle Metcalf?", "How are your classes going?", and my personal favorite, "What are you majoring in?"

I love/hate this question very much, because I just want to major in something different err'day. The short list is Humanities, Art History, English, Political Science, or International Relations. I obsessively find out what people are majoring in and then research it on MyMap. I want to major in everything. I just want to major in going to college, which is unfortunately not offered at BYU.

However, this all changed last night. I was at my final mock session for MUN, which was five hours long and made me want to punch something by the end of it when everyone and their dog was trying to divide the question and every motion ever was failing and it was 10:15, where I started talking to this really nice girl who represents Croatia or something, and she told me she's majoring in Geography and Global Studies. I thought this was the bombest thing ever, and I started asking her a bunch of questions about it. She loves it a lot and said, "It's what IR people want to major in, they just don't know it." SOLD. This major is basically perfect for me. It's like Humanities plus International Relations divided by current events times awesome minus economics and math and statistics. I told myself that I would probably change my mind in four seconds, but it's been OVER TWELVE HOURS and I still can't stop thinking about it. So this is kind of a big deal. I'm very excited about this and just wanted to share.

That's all I have to say. Have a wonderful day, unless you live in Provo where it was literally zero degrees farenheit outside on my way to class this morning. In that case, your day is going to be inevitably miserable and you should just stay inside and study all day. Merry Christmas!
