so I used to want to be a humanitarian aide worker and that slowly evolved into social worker because that was a major and I just assumed it was the same thing. Nope, appears that humanitarian aid worker is different and now I don’t know what to do.
- Update 1: to be an international/humanitarian aid worker it says either two years at a technical training institute or college or a bachelor’s degree. Social workers need at least a master’s degree to become licensed (which is best to be hireable).

- Update 2: I think I want to eventually end up becoming a social worker and be an international aid worker for a period of time with the knowledge that I will be a social worker in the end. Basically I want to become a social worker when I “settle down” and be an international aid worker until that time comes.
Commentary About Update 2: How am I supposed to know if I am emotionally and mentally prepared for a job in international aid? The most I’ve spent away from my family is week long camps and even then I was with friends I knew already. And I am not entirely interested in the majors that most of the agencies hire for soo like am I screwed? I know I want to continue studying Spanish and possibly go into lingustics or cultural anthropology or geography or human geography but I have no idea. I think I want to do this but I don’t know if this is just me appeasing the bit of my younger self and her ambitions or if it’s what I actually want to do (if that makes sense).
okay that’s it. I think I will go to the lady at my high school and talk to her to try and figure it all out but she may be useless. I can’t get a reading on her yet.
