question%20markIs it ok for a person to not know what he wants to do with his life, not because he doesn’t see himself in anything no, but because he sees himself in a number of things. The thing is you can never be sure what will work out best, and you can’t possibly study 4 or 5 things at the same time.

I have thought about changing my major a number of times. I know i never will, maybe because i don’t have the guts, maybe because what i want has more to do with going out and doing it than with studying it at university and maybe because some of the things i want do not have a future here in Jordan and i will end up happy 🙂 but jobless lol.

A fellow blogger asked his readers what their tawjihi average was and what they’ve done with it, the people who commented saying they got an average of something in the 90s were not happy with their studies/work. The people who commented saying they got more of a ‘normal’ average somewhere in the 70s or 80s were happier and doing quite well with work and stuff. We have something wrong with our brains that makes a person who gets a high average automatically want to be a doctor/engineer, as if all book smart people in Jordan have the same interests and want to do the same thing for the rest of their lives.

Universities in Jordan should really rethink their form of accepting applications. I think we pay them more than enough to atleast have an interview type of meeting with applicants for certain majors, you know just to make sure that THEY want it and not ‘IL WALED WIL WALDEH’, or that they want that major because of this and that and not because they simply CAN apply for it.

So, what was your tawjihi average? What have you done with it? And did your average matter when you chose your major? And yea, Mabrook for all you happy folks :), and better luck next year for those who didn’t make it.
