My current planned major is Linguistics :) I want to eventually become a teacher (funny, since I was homeschooled, huh? lol). I'm also thinking about minoring or possibly double majoring in Film Studies. Or I may double major with linguistics and creative writing. I have so many interests, I just want to do everything!
