I had mentioned somewhere that I am having a hard time narrowing down exactly what I want to do with my life. Well, that is not entirely a true statement. There are many things I would like to pursue. One thing I would like to pursue is going back to school and getting my PhD. You may be asking, “What do you want to get your PhD in Jess?” Well, that is a very good question and the answer to that question is Psychology.
I haven’t narrowed down what kind of Psychology yet because there are a couple concentrations that coincide with what will help me with the kind of job I would love to have. That job is a profiler for a government entity, like the FBI or the CIA. I think it would be an interesting career and an interesting topic to learn. I have always been fascinated about what makes people tick, whether that is a regular person on the street or the terrorists that have been wreaking havoc (understatement of the century) overseas. I think being able to learn this aspect of someone’s mind will help me potentially stop more attacks and other terrible acts.
Unfortunately, this dream of mine has a lot more planning involved and probably won’t happen for awhile. I first need to make sure that I have the time and money to move forward with this dream. This involves paying down the loans I already possess and/or getting a job that will help me do so. Hopefully down the line I will be able to accomplish this goal.
