Right after high school, I was in UBC Sciences. Over the years, I studied mainly Math. I was pretty good at it, but soon I felt very lost in life. I had no idea what I wanted to do with a Math degree. In the summer of my 2nd year, I fell into a heavy depression. In the coming years, I majored in Psychology in the hopes of understanding myself better and alleviating my depression. That was also the wrong move. I finished my time at UBC after 4 years and was still lost. Eventually, I got a job with my family business and went back to school years later.
1. Don't rush into University if you are unsure of what you want to do. Take a gap year before or even in between studies.
2. When feeling lost, don't force yourself to finish a degree just because you started it. Take some time to think things over and speak with a counsellor.
