: What would you have majored in had it not been in business? And what field of business are you heading towards?
Hmm, my interests are in philosophy, law, and psychology, in that order. A major in philosophy doesn’t seem as a viable realistic option toward a career. A path toward pre-law seems very difficult and tedious down the road, and knowing myself I am pretty sure it wouldn’t be right for me. Thus I would have probably majored in Psychology because it is both interesting and it has a wide array of opportunities.
It should also be mentioned that I already finished a minor and philosophy and am close to a second minor in psychology.
As of now, I just want to finish getting my degree in business and just get a job then think about what I actually want down the road. I know I don’t want to just have a meaningless desk job, I want to do something that matters and that helps people. But for the immediate time after graduating, I just want to establish my resume and find some stability.
: I don't think life is for me, I'm not being suicidal or anything but I feel like I'm behind in life and I don't know what I truly need to want.
You feel like you are behind because you are comparing yourself to other people.
But you know what, you are ahead of so many people and are even fortunate enough to have a computer and are fortunate to be alive. There are people in 3rd world countries and in war zones who cannot even think “I don’t think life is for me” because they are trying to survive. There are people who are sick and have misfortunes beyond their control and they still fight for life.
And you are telling me “I don’t think life is for me”? You are more fortunate than most, so stop comparing yourself to who you should be and start fighting for who you want to be.
[Also if you believe you are depressed or anything of that nature please consult a professional.]
: So I don't believe in god, and I just had a child. My mom wants to get her blessed and go to church and all that but I don't know how to tell my mom that I don't want that for her. Once she's older if she wants to go to church that's fine. But I don't wanna force it on her. Any suggestions on how to tell my mom without getting into an argument?
I don’t think that that is possible.
Based on your belief that telling your mother may result in an argument, I assume your mother is rather adamant and zealous about her belief and that not blessing the child would go against what she believe. (But seriously if one believes God creates everything and knows everything why would you even need a blessing?)
I think you should just tell her calmly and straightforwardly that that is how you want to raise your child and to trust your judgement and respect your wishes.
Personally, I wholehearted agree with how you want to go about raising your child and I wish I had better advice to give you, but best of luck.
As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.
But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?
I am going to reblog this quote every year.

: How do I stop myself from over thinking? I do it all the time and it's affecting my job.. can you please help?
I recently read the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness and the main character uses a form of meditation to calm his thoughts. He recites the phrase “I am the Circle and the Circle is me” and I have been using that phrase to focus my mind when I feel like I am drifting or overthinking.
That phrase in itself means nothing without context and that series is one of my favorites and I highly recommend it. But yeah, I have been using that phrase to regather myself in situations where I’d normally detach myself from, like in social situation to which I find difficult. It’s rather hard to explain in words but if you read the book and try to understand the main character and their point of view you might understand what I am talking about more.
