Well I'm only 18. I just graduated from high school last year, and started college in September. I had no idea what I was going to major in. I was considering just taking liberal arts, and getting my core classes out of the way. However, I loved cooking. There was that slight push to take culinary arts. I ended up doing it.

I have a scholarship that will cover my tuition for any state college for four years. So money wasn't so much an issue. I've gotten so many grants, that my college actually sent me a check for the difference. I ended up with over a grand. But of course, my parents took most of it. I'm fine with that considering that I don't have a job, and they're the ones covering my book expenses and everything.

However, culinary arts is not as fun as I thought it would be. There is a lot of pressure and the kitchen, and I really don't like it. I've been considering whether or not to call it quits on the program.

I'd just be back at square one, with no idea of what else to take. When I was younger, I wanted to be a writer. But I'll need a source of income while I work towards that.

Unless you're planning on going into grad school or into a field that absolutely requires a specific academic background, your undergrad major isn't going to matter in the general work world in the way you think it will.  Many, many companies actually *prefer* hiring humanities/social science majors, because they tend to have better critical thinking and communications skills than business majors.  If you're into anthropology, I say go for it -- it makes you look far more interesting and well-rounded, and you can very easily spin it into "I'm very observant of the world around me, and have a good understanding of culture," which is a hell of an asset.  Majoring in the humanities/social sciences also indicates intellectual curiosity, and a brain that can operate on a level beyond the obvious, which many companies love.
