The course you study doesn’t determine your education. Your surrounding does.

If you are studying your favourite stream but are in a college that does not help you hang out with the best peers, or you do not feel motivated, or the environment makes you coast, then the stream of your choice will also make you miserable.

To be surrounded by driven, energetic people who are challenging themselves daily, will make sure you do your own epic shit in your own world, even if for the moment you are not pursuing your favourite stream.
