COMM0014 – BLOG 6: Regret or Forget

What choices have you made that you regret?

Everyone has something in their life they regret. Whether it be a failed relationship, poor career choice or chance they never took back in the summer of 2013. (I am talking about myself in that last one in case you didn’t notice.)

Leading up to University I had it easy. I got 90% or higher on all assignments, had a core group of friends, and got accepted into the school of my choice. Not to brag or anything but everything was going great. However, the real world hit me in the face when I had to pick what my major would be in University.

Being a first-generation student, there were a lot of firsts with this whole University experience. I had no clue that suddenly the system changed and there wasn’t core classes I had to take every year.

Naturally, having no idea what I wanted to do for the rest of my life I chose a generic root, Sociology. Nothing against any Sociologist out there, but partway into my degree I soon questioned if this was all there was to University.

At this point in time, I started exploring my options, about 2 years too late. Within this journey, I found the stream of Communication Studies and fell in love. Now in the Marketing side of things, my regrets hold in that moment of 2013 when I did not further explore what McMaster University had to offer me. Had I found the Communications program sooner, maybe I would have been able to add Multi-Media skills to my framework as well.

Sometimes I believe that I am at a disadvantage without a Multi-Media certificate, but I will overcome this feeling! Regrets are in the past, I now push for the future.

  1. I hear ya on this one! I feel like I was in the same boat with psychology. It was just something I took just because, had no intentions of pursuing it. I feel that guidance counselors (and parents) in high school need to pay more of a role in helping students with their post secondary education. There is so much out there these days to pick from, we need to be asking the right type of questions to figure out what we like.

    Never have I ever seen my self in some what of a communications role and low and behold that is the path I am on now and I enjoy it tremendously!

    With all of that being said, I am a true believer that every thing in life happens for a reason and all of your experiences have led you to where you are today. No regrets, only experiences!
