I am no longer looking at studying mechanical engineering. Right now I'm looking at business, specifically marketing.

Can I just say? Wow, this feels so much better. That was one of the things that was getting me so down this week, this whole uncertainty about the future. Mechanical looked like the best shot, but it looked about as fun as getting poked in the face with a sharp stick. I'm really starting to warm up to business.

It seems like a great fit for me. I'm constantly analyzing the business aspect of everything I look at. It allows me to go to work with people, and I'm definitely more interested in people than I am in machinery. Just because I'm good at math and science doesn't mean I have to be relegated to the engineering department.

I feel a ton better about this. I've still got a lot of research to do, but stuff is already looking a ton brighter.

Of course, studying business means that BYU would be the logical place for me to go, not Utah State. I am going to USU this next year, absolutely. After a mission though, if business is in fact the thing for me, I'm going to want to look at transferring to BYU.

I know I've said it before, but I can't reiterate it enough. I feel good about this! I'm excited about it! I was never excited about Mechanical. There were times when I thought it'd be ok, and that was as good as it got. My feelings varied between fearful and passable. That's hardly a way to live.

Hooray! I'm not saying this is my final plan, because I haven't done the research necessary. But from a first look perspective, this is looking freakin' awesome. Score it!

Sounds great! I used to want to go into marketing. I think you'd do really well at it. :-D

Sweet action, yo.

Hey, uh... When you're a billionaire... can you hook a brother up?
