By the way, Nathan, you almost certainly *will* change your mind  
about what you are going to do. Maybe you'll just finally see how to  
do what you really want to do. I went into college planning to be  
there for as little time as possible and come out with a "practical,"  
vocational technology focused degree. I changed directions, realized  
it was time to go where God had been leading me all along, and I'm  
now about to finish up an "impractical" degree before going on to  
further education. Even the unreachable will become reachable if you  
set your mind to figuring out how and God wants you there.

If all goes well, I'll spend the rest of my life in academia. I hope  
in three to five years to be making the transition from student to  
professor. Had I worried too much before entering college and fixed  
myself on one track, I'd be stuck in I.T., which is an anathema to  
me. Mash has good advice though, don't plan so big as to make things  
seem impossible; whenever I do that, I just take a deep breath, look  
at what I need to do next, and then do it. It'll all work out.

The big thing, though is to take action of some sort now. You can  
always change course, but first you need to pick a path to start on.
