It’s hard to be 18. It’s the last time you’ll be asked: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, and this time a serious answer is expected. Who knows what they want to be now? Most of us have only experienced life with mom and dad, with siblings and a family home. We don’t know who we are on our own. We don’t know who we will be in the city. Who we’ll be somewhere else. We don’t know who we will be in 10 years, so a question like that now is impossible to answer for sure.
Some of you have already read about my confusion as to what I’m going to study next after high school. Well, for the reason above I’ve decided I’m not going to take the safest education, the one with a guaranteed job at the end and millions rolling into my bank account. What’s the point if I don’t enjoy it? So I’ve been looking for studies that contain things that might interest me, things I could be excited about learning and that I will enjoy.
The one study I keep coming back to in interest is one called Culture and Communication at the University in Oslo. This course appearantly teaches you about things related to information, communication, journalism, commercialism and marketing. These are the areas people who have studied this are working in now as well. I think I could find this super exciting and fun, as well as handy!

By the way, I updated the design on my blog! What do you think?
