College Major

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I'm a 20 year old sophomore in college, and so far my major has been Aerospace to be a pilot. This was what my dad wanted me to do, so I've done it thus far, but I have since realized that being a pilot is his dream and not mine. My dream is writing. That being said, I've recently considered changing my major to English to try and accomplish that dream. My question to you guys is how good of an idea is that? What else can I do with an English major if a writing career never works out? Any general advice would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you.
