Relieved yet a bit worried.

I'm so happy that I finally got my presentation for Human Growth and Development over with. It never fails; no matter how much I practice and know the information foward backward up and down I always get nervous. I don't remember if I said this before but I usualy (a day before the presentation) go through the list of all the things that could possibly go wrong. Of course, nothing bad happened except I though the teacher was a little irritated that I took 15 minutes instead of the required 10 (most people did 15 though).

Also I finally took the plunge and switched my major from Art Therapy to Psychology. The Art Therapy advisor really frustrated me because she told me the opposite of what I've been hearing. She insisted that a person is 10x more likely to get a job with Art Therapy degree (there's so many opportunities and you can go anywhere with it) than in Psychology (you're basically trapped in a box). She made it sound that Art Therapy is the new up and coming field because so few colleges offer the program which seems like a contradiction to me. She also said that some undergrads already have jobs before they graduate and it's more difficult for a psych major to find internships than an undergrad with an Art Therapy degree. God, now I feel so guilty and confused. I mean, I know that she's like a salesman trying to sell me a product but I still felt bad. I'm wondering if this is the right choice for me. I know that I definetely want to go in a field that involves helping someone with their mental/life problems but I'm still unsure of what specific direction I want to go in.
