YOU ARE THE ADVICE COLUMNIST: Should I Change My Major Again?

But I feel that, even though there's always rainy days, a higher education should be something exciting, right?

I am a girl of 20 from Denmark. After finishing high school, I took a gap year, and then I was desperate to start something else (which was a change of plans), so I started a marketing education, even though I knew I wanted to be in fashion. This education was okay, sometimes good, but after 1st semester I got accepted into a Fashion Design school and moved halfway across the country to start what I thought was my dream education.
I am now studying Fashion Design, which I have talked about/dreamt about/planned to do for the last 10 years. The problem is, I am not feeling great about it. 
A lot of our subjects are boring, I find myself not really "turned on" by anything, not even the fashion design subjects, and I am disinterested and demotivated throughout classes. 
I feel myself longing for something more academic, book-ish (this is a creative, hands-on, teamwork-education) and to do something I  find exciting every day.
I have always loved language and books, so now I'm considering dropping out (again) and studying English. I think this would be a subject I would enjoy studying, but I don't know what I would use it for afterwards. 
I just don't know how to make this decision! I don't want to stay at an education where I'm not interested, but I don't know if this will get better with time, and it's very hard for me to give up what I have imagined for 10 years - I don't really know what else I should work with.
But I feel that, even though there's always rainy days, a higher education should be something exciting, right?
Can you help me with your thoughts and opinion?
