Peace of Mind

All righty, so my mind twin sgteam14283 already had something like this, but its my turn now.  So, I'm starting school again tomorrow.... wooo -pouts-  Anywho, I've got maybe one more year left at COD.  Then I'm transferring.  That's where I run into a bit of a snag.  See, I've always wanted to do writing, screenwriting.  Ever since like, my sophomore year of high school.  I still want to do screenwriting.  But ever since my freshman year of high school, I've been into history too, granted not nearly as much as my mind twin.

I have there options in schools that I'm thinking about, with essentially three different majors.  First, there's Columbia College in Chicago.  Where'd I'd major in Film/Video with a concentration in Screenwriting.  That's been the general plan for about a year now.  However, I want to go to Vancouver, British Columbia as well.  I have for a long time.  So I'm considering going to the University of British Columbia and majoring in Film Production and minoring in History (or switching it around).  Which leads to my third choice.  Cardiff University.  Where I'd double major in history and ancient history and minor in English, or writing or something like that.

The problem is, I am the most indecisive person on the planet.  And I just don't know what I want to do.  I mean, if I studied History, it'd be Western (European) history and ancient history.  The way I see things, no matter which school I go to, I'm going to need student loans.  There's no way around that.  So if I'm gonna be putting myself into even more debt, then I figure I should go where I want, yes?  If I study history, I want to be where it happened.  I want to be where the history is. Sure there's history in the United States, but we're only two hundred years old and a lot of that history is politics.  I don't want that, I hate American history.  I want to be where the history is, and going to Europe (specifically the UK) has always been a dream of mine... and okay, I have to admit, the geek in me is telling me to go to Cardiff.

Then there's Vancouver.  I want to study film, that's a prime place for it.  Its a major television city.  I want to write for television, that's where I want to go to school and learn.  That too, has my inner geek going... "go there, go there" and I just don't know what to do.  I'm indecisive and I'm doing poorly at COD because I am lacking direction.  The only way I can get my act together is if I have a goal in mind, and I don't.  Not that anyone out there can really help with that, but I think I just want to know that there are others like me.  I don't know... I just needed to get that little rant out.
