Intended Degree or Major


"What do you want to be?"

im 17 i dont know

i still have to ask to go to the bathroom

5-7 times

 statistics say 

a person changes their career

so please dont ask me

everyone asks me


until the words dont mean things

you just say them


"Who do you want to be?"

Now, that's different.

Kind, Smart, Creative, Intuitive, Brave, Determined, Outgoing, Hardworking, Generous, Organized, Compassionate, Insightful, Helpful, Strong

Give me a word, I'll tell you I want it. 

Place it on a mountain, I'll climb it to reach it.

I'll pull them out of the sky for you, glazed with bits of cloud.

They don't require a degree, call it "strong moral fiber" 

I know. I really, really do.
