    I will be graduating in 2018, and I don't know how I'll be able to control myself from studying what I like (i.e. philosophy and psychology) and thereby neglect what I should be studying for my degree (Japanese)...

    Does anybody here have advice for me? It's a little disappointing not knowing who I could talk to about this predicament.

    Been there mate soon as it was over I erased my degree from my memory and started self-teaching myself about the area I was interested in. I now work in that area, I will probs remove my degree of my cv soon I think its more of a liability than anything else.
