How did you know which major was right for you? When did you figure out what you wanted to do when you got older?

I am asking this question because I have no idea what I want to do when I grow up. I am a little nervous that I will make the wrong decision.

College graduates; what do you wish you had known about college life when you were a freshman?

I've been getting set up to go college this spring (choosing dorms, FAFSA, etc.), but I still retain some concerns about life on campus. Specifically, I'm interested in what the consensus is regarding the ability of someone like myself, who has always had problems being social, to make friends...
