If I'm undecided between two career paths, how do I determine which one will be best for me?

My plan at the moment is to become a psychologist, but I'm still on the fence about whether I want to be a psychologist or a concept artist. Both of these paths are drastically different, so how do I pick between them? #college #psychology #art #higher-education #time-management #undecided

What if I made a typo on my college application?

Should I call attention to the typo if it's minor, like leaving out the word "the" or forgetting a period?
