Cornell Plans

When I came in as a freshman to Cornell I had a these goals in mind:

  • get a Computer Science degree.
  • get a Game Design Minor.
  • get a Fine Arts Minor.
  • get a Computing in the Arts or Information Science Minor.
  • do the Graphics Vector.
  • do the Software Engineering Vector.

Not only was this extremely naive and unrealistic, my interests have shifted quite dramatically since then. Nowadays I have no concern about completing a minor, and am looking very forward to doing the default vector(specialization), the Renaissance vector. I’ve learned through classes and such that the credentials of these minors and vectors are not want I need, and are especially not what I want.

I don’t think I’m giving up, or letting myself down. I’ve revised my definition of a successful college career, and it is most certainly not taking classes for minors or vectors that I am not 100% in love with. I’ve also seen a lot of growth as I focus on what is happening now in the present and near future, which is pleasantly surprising.

I won’t be surprised if I change my mind yet again – I tend to do that quite often. But it’s a good reminder to always realize that I can’t get too attached to one plan. Nothing really happens the way I initially expect.
