My name is Alex Barrett. I am a junior at NCSU and I major in Geology. I originally wanted to be an engineer but after I finished Physics 2 I realized I didn't actually want to be one any more. I was taking Geology as an elective that semester and found it really interesting so I decided that I would give that a shot and it has worked out so far. I enjoy my major because I get to work with numbers but I also have the luxury of being able to work outside in the field as well as inside in a lab so I can pick and choose where I want to be. I also like that it's a major that doesn't suck all the life out of me but it's challenging enough to keep me consistently thinking.
My favorite hobby is playing video games. I enjoy all types of video games on all kinds of platforms. Playing video games allows me to distance my mind from anything else I was doing in the real world. I also have found friends online as well as people in real life that enjoy certain games with me so I don't play by myself unless I choose to. Playing video games also helps me keep my mind constantly focused on one thing otherwise I will find myself starting and stopping multiple things that never end up getting finished.Reddit
