Tyler has surprised us once again! Remember when we went to all the colleges last summer here and here. Tyler was looking into International Relations and Affairs, his goal was to work in a foreign embassy. His favorite school was Syracue in NY. Well I made him apply to several schools within a 3 hour drive of our house and he got accepted to all of them with many of them giving him a full ride and/or scholarships. Well just 3 short weeks ago, Tyler came home from school and said he now wants to go to Western Illinois University and Major in Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice! What! Where in the world did that come from? It's like he just switched him mind at the last minute. First of all, we are way behind the 8 ball then because applications needed to be filled out and most of the other kids did that way back in December. Well he sent his application and was accepted, so Tom and Tyler went to look at the campus. I do say, it is an U G U L Y campus, kinda old and yucky. There montra is, you don't go to the University for the buildings, you go for the education. Ya I guess that is true, but come on, spruce it up a little! Western Illinois is the top school for Law Enforcement in the state. So my son who surprises me all of the time like here and here will be a Leatherneck. I, as his mother, is a little worried about him in Law Enforcement, but he is super smart and will do the best he can in what ever Major he chooses!
and just so you know, a Leatherneck is a Marine! They used to wear leather around their necks to protect them in sword fights! I know, you think I'm so smart, but I looked it up!
I ask all of you out there, how in the world did you choose a Major when you went to College? Tom nor I went to College, so we are completely baffled on how you know what you want at 18?
