What's Your Major? // The Truth about "Worthless" Majors

As a freshman, I agonized over figuring out what my major should be.  After a couple of English classes, I knew that I wanted to major in Literature, but I had heard too many people say Humanities majors could expect to flip burgers for the rest of their lives.

The childish confidence sputters out into silence, and we are left waiting, wondering what to do next when we actually have no idea of where we are going.

That's the nature of the future--it is yet to come and, therefore, unknown. So, in the midst of the haze, how do you find your future?
