When I was a kid I was always telling teachers and family that my dream was to become an archaeologist and they encouraged me. But now once they realise that I was serious, people are constantly frowning, questioning and outright saying it’s a stupid career to peruse. Firstly, that’s so fucking rude. How dare you criticize my passion. Sometimes though I am kind of glad people are skeptical of my major. It just makes me want to work harder and prove that it is within my reach. It’s just very frustrating that people can be so quick to judge. I understand most people don’t know anything about archaeology (most think i’ll be digging up dinosaurs *sigh*) but it’s still hard sometimes hearing over and over again that my major isn’t as good as others or that I won’t be successful.
