My interests are all over the place. Right now, I've got one degree in Korean linguistics and within a year I'll finish my business degree. Problem is, I still haven't found that 'one thing' that I just love learning about.
How did you guys decide on your degrees/ tech schools?

I always liked physical geography in high school, probably because I like being outdoors and knowing something about the planet I live on, so I eventually ended up drifting into Geography in university.
That only lasted one semester before I figured out that job prospects were slim and that it involved a lot of courses that bored me to tears. That's when I decided to go hard core and switched into Geology.
Ironically, I now work at a desk in aviation and quite enjoy it, but will never regret getting my Geology degree.
You're going hate this, but for me it was dumb luck.
I had no idea that I liked chemistry, I even flunked out of it in high school, so I was more surprised than anyone to learn in college that I not only liked it, but LOVED it.

Id love to study that. I guess I'm just scared to put all my eggs in one basket. Afraid of commitment I guess?
Nothing wrong with a little commitment. It doesn't mean you're stuck with what you study for the rest of your life. We're all lucky here in NA because we have so many options when it comes to changing direction in mid-stream if we so choose.
Could you point me at material on glacial grinding of rocks? Also anything on obsidian fields would be useful.
I probably can but I'm not sure about what kind of material you're looking for. Do you want general internet pics and stuff, or serious textbooks or scientific papers or what?
Let me know what aspect of glacial erosion you're interested in and I'll fix you up? Just general stuff or are you looking for something specific. Same goes for the lava fields, what do you want to know?
Both are pretty broad topics so you need to narrow your focus a little man, unless you're just looking for entertainment along the lines of Seduction leads to Orogeney
