From physics to math to German to English: the course of my studies

I went to college to study physics, but Freshman Physics was all equations, so I thought I might as well study math. Late in my freshman year I read Nietzsche and began to consider German, too. In my sophomore year, I studied the German language all year and took courses on German thought from the eighteenth to the twentieth century, along with math courses. But when I had to declare a major after a year off, I chose English instead. Over the years, I had taken so many math courses that I do wonder if I might have also been able to finish a math major in my last two years. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 25 May 2023)
