Mrs.BAT's Journal

Ramblings of my junk filled head

Originally, since pre-school, my plan was to become a writer. Writing has been my passion for 17 years. But, when I was about 12 or 13, I found out that babies weren't always born in hospitals (yes I knew they weren't always in the past because there were no hospitals, but until then I thought everyone gave birth in a hospital unless they were in some tribal setting) and my passion for home birth and midwifery began. That was almost 10 years ago.

Until I started college the first time 3 years ago, I had planned on becoming a midwife. Then I finally gave in to what my family and everyone had said about that not being feasible and decided to pursue writing. Then I got pregnant and dropped out and decided I wanted to be a midwife. Now, I'm back in college and I have NO idea what I want to do! I know it's between those two things, but I have no clue how I'm going to decide.

I'm passionate about both and I want to do both. I honestly think that pursuing a degree in English is much more easily attainable for me, but I keep thinking "What if...?" over and over. It's the same way when I think about going after midwifery. I'm so torn between my two great loves and I have no idea what to do anymore...
