When it comes right down to it, I guess I let my high school boyfriend choose my college major.
It was at the end of a date and we were sitting in his car in my parents’ driveway.
He informed me that he planned on majoring in psychology when he went to college, and went on to explain, “Psychology is the practice of giving prescription medication to people who need emotional support.”
Well, that’s actually part of the practice of psychiatry, but I didn’t know that at the time.
I decided right then that psychology would suit me just fine too, and I didn’t really give it too much thought after that.
