Where I'm Bound...

Being a junior in college is supposed to mean that you have everything figured out. And whenever I go home, I'm always prepared to get assaulted with questions like "what are you going to do after you graduate?" or "what do you want to do with THAT degree?" Usually I fumble some non-committal answer -- law school is a great excuse :) -- but truth be told (and don't tell my parents)... I HAVE NO IDEA! But you know what? I'm not that upset about it. When I first came to Berkeley I thought I was going to be a Political Science major, maybe even study art. Two years later, I've fallen in love with environmental science and know that I never want to do anything else... maybe. But I've had a great time figuring out what I'm interested in and I'm not in any hurry to pick just one career for the rest of my life. My dream job would be to travel abroad to some Central American country to do research or work with developing governments, but I would be perfectly happy to stay in the beautiful Bay Area and do environmental work for a non-profit or for-profit environmental company. I'm really interested in interning with companies like Save the Bay, the Pacific Institute, Foundation for Sustainable Development, or just about any green-minded company out there. I'm also really getting into sustainable agriculture and green building at the moment, so would love to get some work experience in that field. All in all, I'm excited to see where the future takes me. Although most of the time, that excuse doesn't really work that well on my parents... ;)
