This is true in all fields of my life, but extraordinarily so academically.
My application to double my major was accepted, so now I am in philosophy and religion & culture. Despite these being seemingly job-consequence-less studies they are just that to me - studies. University is for learning what you love; university was created for these studies, and I plan to hold true to that.
I was given near perfect marks in two classes (History of Buddhism and Ancient Greek Philosophy), and the marks for various exams and essays are trickling in and blowing my mind. Apparently I am now eloquent enough to bring my ideas to light for professors.
I’ve decided to get my PhD and pursue teaching at the university level - if I could spend all my life reading and writing and inspiring students the way I am inspired each day I will forever be happy.
I would warm your nights,
And cool your hell with my light…
