I have finally picked a major!!!

It has been almost 20 years since I left my home in Scottsdale, Arizona to begin my new adventure as a BYU Co-ed. While in Provo, I had some fabulous times and met some of my very best friends. (In fact, I am at one of those best friends' house right now for summer vacation... She is the very reason I am actually blogging after so many months of silence. ) Unfortunately, while I was meeting new friends and having lots of fun, I never was able to pick a major... I mean at 18 years old I was supposed to know what I wanted to be when I grew up So needless to say, I continued having fun, meeting new friends, and not picking a major all the way out of BYU.

Well, it has taken me 20 years, but I have finally done it!!! I have chosen my major...(Paige insisted that I blog about it.) I am going to get a bachelor's degree in Family History. Yep...that's right...Family History. I am going to be a Genealogy Specialist and people will pay me to research their family history. The way I came to this decision was quite providential and I am excited to get started. BYU is the only college in America that offers a Bachelor Degree in Family History. It is a good thing I am up here in Utah so I can go to a guidance counselor at BYU to find out what will be required. So now I have chosen a major and I don't have to think about that any more...In the words of Forrest Gump..."That's one less thing!"....

Also in the words of Forrest Gump..."That's all I've got to say about that."

So glad you got that worked out. Now you need to post about all the fun you are having at that best friend's house. You know, the parties, parades, overeating, late nights, camping, etc.

Congratulations! That is really fascinating--I didn't realize BYU offered that as a major. If I had known, I might have minored in it.
