I am unsure about changing my major...

Hello. I am a UCF student and I have just finished my first year. Last year, when I was at my college orientation, I decided to change my major from undecided to English Education. I decided this after taking a few career tests at the orientation. I started doubting this choice at the beginning of my first semester, but I decided to stick with it. I took an Intro to Teaching course in the fall and a Child Development for Educators course this past spring semester. I did not hate these classes and I somewhat enjoyed the service learning aspect of these courses. Also, I did not struggle in these courses at all. However, I have always had this desire to switch majors. Now that I am done with my first two semesters in college, I am feeling really confused. I am pretty much done with all my gen ed requirements since I came into college with AP credit. I just have one gen ed left(statistics), which I am taking in the fall. I have no idea if I want to stay in this major or if I want to get out of it while I still can. I am panicking because I do not have much time. I have looked through the UCF major catalog and the only other major that interests me is Advertising/PR. I absolutely LOVE to write, so I definitely want a career that has to do with writing and English. I like the numerous possibilities that come with this new major and I'd love the opportunity to have a career that will allow me to express my creativity. I would not say that I am passionate about education, which worries me greatly. I just don't want to make the mistake of switching majors only to find out that I would have liked to stay in education. I would appreciate any advice that you could give me. Thank you.
