thinking ahead to the upcoming school year

I've finally managed to sort out my classes to perfection. I realized earlier today that one of my English professors was one of my TAs last year. Hahaha. I remember the one lecture he gave and quickly managed to switch sections. Thank god. Taking the distance courses this summer has made me realize a lot about what kind of learning I'm best suited to and I think it's given me some insights as to how to be more successful next year. I really think I have it in me to do so much better next year. I'd feel even more comfortable about it if I knew exactly what I was working towards. Sure, in the short run it's the best marks possible of course. But I've become more and more disillusioned about what exactly I'm at university for. To be honest I really I have no idea what I want to do with my life. And I feel really undirected because it seems like everyone else around me is on very rigorous and directed paths. Some times I think I wouldn't mind sticking with English and going into Law. But the more artsy side of me craves something with more depth than that. I know I could be great at something like graphic design or fashion design. But it's hard to say what exactly I want anymore. I'm hoping that this first term with help me to gain a more clear perspective on this matter.
