    Anthropology & Development

    I've never found any subject that interests me as much as Anthropology, ever. I decided that this was what I primarily wanted to study, but I never wanted to do it as a single honours. I wanted to combine with something that would prove a bit more practical.
    Yeah I love Anthropology, but I opted for Archaeology because it's more hands on, and meticulous brushing and digging, analysing, documenting and travelling excites me so much it's almost sad :p:

    I want to go into Forensic Archaeology/Anthropology after my degree, and hopefully work in crime scene investigation.

    I wanted to do Archaeology for years! Infact I still do. I've read a lot about it but I've never been on a dig I might see if someone will let me do a *beginners* one next summer, just for the fun of it. I would have loved to do anth and arch combined but I though development could prove more useful for me in the future.

    History and Literature.

    Though I panicked last night that my decision might be wrong, I'm now confident that this degree (to which I never could have imagined any alternative*) will help me to get me into coaching, journalism or television.

    *WTF what was that? I just don't know how to write this down correctly ô.o

    I chose geology with geophysics at first as I wanted to combine earth science and physics, my two favourite sciences, but having had more practical experience with earth science I was very put off.

    Now I'm doing physics for both interest and as a stepping stone to many other things. My original plan is to get a meteorology masters and work as a forecaster(/weatherman :blush:) (or get a PhD, if I'm up for it)... but physics is broad, and I may find myself attracted to medical biophysics, nanotechnology, or a whole bunch of different things.

    History and Politics.

    My end game is to be a novelist, and although you'd assume that I'd naturally go with creative writing I've ultimately always gotten more inspiration from studying history than anything else. I added on politics purely because I thought it'd be interesting and it augments the study of history. That and they're the only subjects I was ever interested enough in to read up on in my own time and not as a part of a school assignment.

    Well that's more or less it :P

    Textiles & Surface Design - I've always had a major passion for Printed Textiles and am good at it. Hoping it will lead to either being a Print Designer freelance, or in an established Print company, but either way I love it!
