Interesting dilemma...and one in which you need to be really truthful with yourself about. Maybe your biggest issue here is being truthful with yourself about why you don't feel like going to school. What is it about school or education that doesn't appeal to you right now? What is it that makes you "not" want to go to school? Is the teachers? Is it the classes? Is it the other students? Is it the educational program? Is the educational or social structure of the school? There is something that doesn't appeal to you....and isn't motivating you. Think about it...listen to your own intuitive wisdom and follow your own gut feelings about this. Something doesn't feel right to you. You need to listen to yourself right now. Take the time to honor your own deep seated wisdom and inner guidance by doing this. Listen to yourself. Its possible you may need to pull back for a short while and take a breather...just to block out all the other incoming noise and be able to hear yourself think. Your struggle with having two majors may not be the real issue here. In fact, it may be the least of your problems. There is no reason you cant be a graphic designer AND a professor too....as long as its YOU who is making this decision (and not YOU feeling like you have to). Its all perfectly "doable" (as long as YOU really want this for yourself). And its okay to change your mind...nothing is etched in stone....you can always come back to it...and it wont be a disaster if everything doesn't perfectly fall into place. Go and play with this...minus the self expectations....or the expectations of others. In the end, its about how it makes YOU feel...about yourself...about your life...about your world...that counts. Go in the direction of what makes you feel good about yourself...what motivates you...and gives you energy and enthusiasm. Get in touch with THAT!
