Throughout high school and so far (2.5 years ) in college I knew I wanted to do .. Nursing . I recently had a change of heart ... By taking my basic psychology classes , I learned that maybe I have a gift for psychology , if you would like to learn more about the field.

Public universities in my state to make a transfer of 60 +60 for a BA , so essentially complete my Associate Degree in Arts ( the first 60 credits) and finish college with a degree in Psych (seconds 60 credits ) , while in the waiting list of Nursing , and hopefully all the time they enter nursing school ... MedlinePlus MedlinePlus This brings me to my questions : MedlinePlus 1) Does this sound crazy? MedlinePlus 2) What can be realized with a degree in psychology ?

Getting through to my parents?1matin2012-10-26 10:19:04
During the past two years , my parents have been giving me hell. There have only been a few times when I deserved it (accidentally going over on my cell phone twice) , but mostly cried about how I was not doing enough to pass American History , Pre - Cal , or even German although I have studied for hours every day and never left . Now , they are giving me hell because they decided to take a loan to pay the last of the money they need for college . I never asked them to take it out, and all the time we were filling out the paperwork to complain about what should have gone to a cheaper school ( even though the school has a psychology program shit so not good for me) and then cry because I sprout thanks. Neither of my parents really understand why I have to leave this city . They do not see or refuse to see the change in me when I'm here . When I was at boarding school was so confident , I walked up and not care what people thought . But when I'm here all I want to do is curl up in a ball and hide , he stands back and I just did not take care of myself like I should. MedlinePlus I tried to get this through them , but all they do is get mad at me . How I can get through my parents that I have to leave this city and go away to a dry husk ? How to make them understand that I'm grateful that took out the loan , but it's hard to be grateful when piled all their financial problems on me ?[View Answers]
Did I make the right decision changing classes?0Horatia2012-10-23 19:15:15
Currently, I am a sophomore in high school that is apart of an advanced program. In this program, you are automatically in AP classes, and some accelerated courses so that you're a year ahead of the other sophomores. Next year, I will be the third year of high school, but I'm also going to be a freshman at Texas A & M University. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Some of my fall is that I get distracted easily, and for the last two years (freshman and sophomore) was diverted slightly to Varsity Band (aka Band), some of my grades dropped to C in the first half. Also, I had to go to practice after school every Monday and Wednesday, and Friday night (sometimes there are days of the week) I got home around 12 or 1:00 a.m. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I thought about doing something with music, but I think that's not my passion. What I really like to do, is to paint, draw and create. I have a broad imagination, and enjoy being in a kind of abstract atmosphere. Today I want to be an architect, and of course, I know that probably will change, but the point is that I know I do not want to do anything with the music. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus What I'm trying to make is that yesterday I went to the office and asked them to take a throw (for next year) and put me in the art. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus For those of you who are in college now, do you think I made the right decision? My best friend tells me that I will have the time to make Varsity Band, and keep my grades, but I really do not think I can. I love Marching Band a lot, and I know I'll miss you, but this has been something that has been bothering me for a while. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus * My college classes next year will be: English, History, Sociology and Psychology[View Answers]
Thinking about dropping out in the near future. Any opinions?0Sree2012-10-23 18:22:02
I've been to the Art Institute of Seattle for a year and a half or so, almost 2, and when I moved to IA in Tennessee, which was carried out as most of my credits did not transfer. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have 21 now and specialize in graphic design. I went through a phase around age 20, and was thinking of leaving because he did not want to lose the money from my mother at that time. Whenever I've been teaching myself a lot of things, and when I took the quarter and use all the money they had saved for an apartment for a few months, I was thinking about dropping out. Finding a job is the most difficult at the time and living in downtown Seattle meant having a lot of people looking for jobs as well. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Because of that, I went home and decided that the idea of ​​going to a public college and major in Psychology / Sociology. But after weeks of talking to my mother, I decided to return to the Art Institute and finish my years ... even though most of my credits did not transfer when I moved to IA in Tennessee, and the results I had back in square one. MedlinePlus I majored in Graphic Design a room or two, then switch to the animation. Knowing that the entertainer was not for me (since I love drawing only), I was thinking about transferring to AI in Atlanta, as had most WANTED Illustration ....! But after thinking about it and know that we do not want and not enough credits to extend my whole new year, decided to stay and return to Graphic Design. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So, here I am, trying to absorb a bit as some of the new teachers hired here are doing too much in terms of workload management me, I know that is understandable for college students, but I just do not like how some try to get to me and give me a low rating because it "could have done better." Well, I'm sorry I do not put my all into what the school wants me to do, I just do what is needed for necessities, so do not give me a low degree of it. (I like to draw and digital painting, and also some things related to design as well. This is almost an example that comes from my typography class, my teacher looks at me the wrong way because once again, the Typography is not where my creativity is at.'m just taking the class, because it is my duty). MedlinePlus MedlinePlus When I thought I was on the road to leave years ago, I was very motivated. I took control of my own time, and did what I had to do that was important. I do not have much money to buy programs and all that, but now, I actually I have a friend hook me up with some things today, which is really what you need to get started. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I do not want my mom to keep using all your money for my education when really prefer to teach myself as I've been away from my school. Until now, that old feeling I had at the time when I lived in Washington is beginning to return. This time, I'm just a little more prepared, since I have a car and all, and some other things. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I'm going to role with the punches, but only I have to build my plan B, while I'm in college just in case something happens (finance start to hurt me and my mom, or academic probation, etc. Anything). I have to go back and start looking for a job to save at least some money so that one day, I can pay my own roof over my head. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus In general, I prefer to get my degree, it just feels like I'm prepared for it. And so, I know I'm wasting my mother's money. Now I'm doing good in most of my classes, it's just something I'm not doing well because of my motivation. I can do better on my own for a while, and in the future, I will be more comfortable again. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus As for now, I'm just ready and looking forward to the time wether or not.[View Answers]

Fields in Psychology that make the most money with just a Master's Degree?0Yoli2012-10-23 11:04:44

Which degree and career after several failures and boredom?0S.Cullen2012-10-23 06:31:12
No offense, but if you are not particularly researched, well read or experienced in the depth of this issue, and if you do not feel like you have a specific vision that can help, please, save your time and do not worry about publication or help. Here's why: I spent over 10 years trying to find an answer, read dozens of books, thousands of pages, paid hundreds or a few thousand in seeking professional help, and even today, I can not answer yet to question myself. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Here are some details to give you an idea of ​​how incredibly difficult it has been: books I read are The Pathfinder, do what you are, what color is your parachute, The Element. I paid for include professional hypnotherapists and life coaches. I also paid for commercials psychometric and personality tests. I've been reading self-improvement books generally every 20 years. I tried a course or program of payment of the race of self-discovery. I paid for career / college, bought books, but often could not seem to get to stay in school or doing the necessary work, I do not know if you can call just boredom, but that's just the most commonly used word. The fact of the matter is that ... I could not get to keep fighting until the end, until you get a full qualification or less. I have also tried a variety of jobs and careers, including acting, web development and graphic design, writing, research, management and entrepreneurship. I have practiced my fair share of escapism to forget all this confusion in real life, through computer games or video, or watch movies and TV shows to disk. Many tests and readings I mentioned the possibility of psychology or be a psychologist, others told me the race or the message to be a preacher, a man of the cloth, or a religious leader, whatever you want to call it. But at one time or another, I lose interest in the courses or books. I do not feel like I like studying and reading over time, although I'm sure I can enjoy reading and study, not only all. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It is easy to label myself as a coward, but first, it really does not solve my problem and not an accurate conclusion anyway, given the things I've learned from years of study of personal improvement, and secondly I can surprise even myself, let alone critical, for my "selective" tolerance prolonged activities. I'm perfectly capable of doing the same, just much longer than the average person I've ever met, obviously I am more selective when I do this, and unfortunately I can not make a living or add something to the world with any of the activities I absorb tens of hours or days ... are mainly the activities that do not involve living in real life, not thinking about it ... chain so watching all the episodes of a TV series or play a particularly fascinating game with a good story. And obviously, I do not want to live so much longer ... I prefer to add something to the world, be useful to myself, family and others. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Finally, let me also tell you some of the achievements that can prove I'm not the type of person who just enjoys making or lack of hard work: I was the best student in high school, academically and athletically, with the best grades and Most Valuable Player achievement also for sports teams in many organizations where I've worked (and eventually got soul drained or bored to tears of jobs), I have built positive relationships or friendships, even with some of the leaders these organizations have MedlinePlus impressed co-workers and managers with some of my creative ideas and enthusiasm to improve work procedures, how to do things, and for the good of all. MedlinePlus So ... want to have an idea of ​​why someone like me can not settle for an option or course grade and finish it without feeling too stressed and tired or bored of it? You know how I can investigate or monitor heart, my way to my vocation? You know what degree or career would be ideal for me, or at least not bore me to tears? =) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus And here's an easier question ... may refer to any of this? I'm so desperate and alone as we sometimes imagine that I am?[View Answers]
