I'll try to keep this simple, but in reality, the situation becomes more complicated. I'm in my second year of college and I have come about my limit, and patience, to try to find a degree that I would like to accomplish. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus - I entered his first year with a double major in Biology (BS) and Spanish (BA) in the pre-med program MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus - Last spring I switched to English Writing and Rhetoric and MedlinePlus in Spanish. MedlinePlus The reasoning behind my change was ultimately because writing is, and has always been my best subject. Also, my first year of Rhetoric and Composition II class was the AI, only in my first semester. And certainly not because it was easy. Looking back, I felt I spend more time at work on that course compared to my chemistry classes in which I could barely understand / take much more effort to reach the minimum. Secondly, I have a strong connection with my writing teacher and had meetings with her often. Same with my chemistry teacher, but still, last semester I was exhausted and could not see any spark of interest in the field longer. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Now I have two classes in English Writing and Rhetoric important and makes me miserable. Design Document and Latin Grammar. Design Document feels like a marketing class and I know how to use all software used in the course. It feels like a kindergarten course (ie, why this good ad, why is it bad?). The class of Latin grammar is fine, but too many rules and terminology of the structure tend to ignore anyway. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I love Spanish, I studied abroad in Spain and hope to study abroad in another Spanish-speaking country, so there's no question. But I want to write. I've written, and I love writing, about consciousness, near-death experiences, religion, and of course, what I'm realizing that I want to go back to biology and the natural sciences. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have horrible math skills and really feel it is the strongest deterrent to my desire to return again in the natural sciences. However, I want to integrate my enjoyment of the topics of psychology, ethics, biology, religion, the universe in general, etc into something that can really be proud of. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have examples of my writing, if anyone is interested. I think many of my works are controversial and would not work well in the media and / or publication so lost and I feel like my professional field is narrow and that unemployment and those whose odds are generally high. My works are my not mean disrespect, but a casual reading MedlinePlus. MedlinePlus So if anyone has any ideas of how I could use my interests or find a job similar to writing as I said, I would be very grateful. I do not want my opinion to constrict and distort what I feel for fear of how the public perceives it. I have much to say, but feel there is no ready audience. So maybe you should go ahead and find another employment opportunity. I'm not entirely sure just anything right now. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So again, thanks in advance if you gave your time to read this. I hope some kind of response.

In general , the writing, which is there own opinions as a job. That does not mean it can not be done , but the method is the same as in fiction writing - to write something ( or a summary thereof ) and then try to interest an editor in publishing what MedlinePlus . MedlinePlus The problem is that the editor is likely to be interested in your opinion, in direct proportion to what you are established as an authority in that field . If you are an eminent scientist , his opinion will be considered of interest in a wide range of topics - someone unknown , with only a college degree is likely to attract attention , regardless of the original form of his ideas are (unfortunately ) MedlinePlus . MedlinePlus I have two possible suggestions :
First, have you considered science journalism ? What is wanted from you here would not be original ideas , but the ability to transmit new scientific ideas to a wide , and not necessarily technically minded , audience. However, if you build a reputation in this field , this could eventually lead to the authority having enough for their opinions to be of interest , the way you want . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The alternative would be to consider writing science fiction. Traditionally , science fiction has been used as a means to convey thoughts and ideas. If you can weave your ideas into a story that is entertaining enough attention, then that could be an effective way to get your ideas. However, writing as a career is a very high risk occupation . I would strongly suggest that you write in your spare time and pursue another career to make a living - at least until you have your first book published .

You communicate in great detail and passion , so writing is definitely a strong point for you . The question is , are you wondering what kind of education you should pursue , or are wondering what kind of career to follow ? Ultimately, of course , will have to be the one to answer that. But what is not always consider pursuing . There is a running joke among many schools : " Why yes , I have a liberal arts degree . Want fries with that ? " MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Instead of getting philosophical on you , I will recommend you study what interests you most. That does not mean you get the best grades in the class, which means you do not even get a job at it later . You now have the opportunity to learn , and you should take . If you want to write as a career , studying not necessarily get you where you want to go . ( Never Some of the best writers majored in English Writing and Rhetoric . ) There is no reason you can not start putting antennas out of places to post your job now . There is no reason why you can not study Spanish history and natural , then write about travel and ethics of science as a freelance writer . O editor. Or a technical writer of instruction manuals in English and Spanish . The changes in the publishing industry constantly . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Less than 3% of fiction writers earn enough from writing to themselves, but that is not the case for non-fiction writers , editors , and other writers of various levels . None of that should you stop sharing your writing , but no one has a crystal ball that can tell you where you'll be in three years and how education plays in that. You sound like you're in your Sophmore Slump , but you will recover. :)
