My 45-minute Career Counseling Session

So I finally followed up on my 15-minute career counseling session with a 45-minute session - actually, though, my counselor and I ended up talking for an hour and a half!

The truth is that it really wasn't all that helpful. People go the center expecting answers, when all of the answers are really inside yourself.

So yes, I was unable to judge myself well enough to really feel comfortable. Remember quizilla, or whatever? The assessment is sort of like that, and you kind of know the profile types before you get your answer.

So basically, my counselor ended up quoting inspirational quotes and we touched on the meaning of life and what drove certain people. At times, I felt like I was talking to a philosophy professor during office hours. I'm not taking any humanities courses right now, but that feeling motivated me to go to my professors' office hours more often, just to talk about anything (it took off the pressure I had to think of some mind-blowing question before entering). That's the one downside of sciences and the objective; office hours are usually more "structured" for these subjects.
