Hello. I am a rising sophomore at a liberal arts college. My current plan is to major in mathematics. However, I think I am coming upon a realization. I like mathematics, but I don't know if its my passion. Now partly, I wonder if this is because I haven't actually made the transition from computational to abstract mathematics. (I have been struggling with proofs and abstract concepts for awhile now, and it definitely seem a lot more interesting on the other side.) Also, I have a constant pull between wanting to be pure and wanting to be applied. I wish to do something that is useful, helpful to people, but at the same time I want to hole myself away and explore some abstract world. Basically, I am confused as to what I want to do and I want to find what my passion is. I realize this can take a long time, but I don't want to pidgeonhole myself. So hence this post. Can you suggest something for me to investigate? A field, an area of research, anything that you think is interesting or you think I may find interesting? It can be from physics, biology, mathematics, chemistry, anything. (I really don't care right now about job opportunities, money, anything like that. I just want to find my passion. Everything else will follow because I will make it follow.) A little more information about myself that might be useful to make suggestions. I like to problem solve, and I like problem solving with off the wall solutions. I crave creativity, as most people do. I think this is the main reason I am attracted to mathematics. I find computer programming incredibly easy. This is partially because of a lot of experience I have in the field, but its always come easily to me. (A lot easier than mathematics.) The catch is, I get bored with programming. I think this is because it seems to be easy for me. I don't know if this says something about my personality. (I like a challenge?) I like trying to tie ideas together. I don't know if I am actually good at doing it, but I like doing it. In the past, I have considered a large array of future careers and fields of study. (Physics, Mathematics, Literature/Writing, Doctor, Medical Researcher, Neurology, Philosophy, to name a few.) I tend to think I am a good self-directed learner. I like spending hours with a book, or video lecture, trying to teach myself something new that I find interesting. I like collaboration. I'm not much of a talker, but when it comes to intellectual pursuits, I love to discuss ideas. Thank you for any suggestions that you can provide. They will all be greatly appreciated.
