I suppose I’ve proved my point, I’m inconsistent. I’d actually forgotten I had a blog, then suddenly it dawned on me and I remembered I planned to use this as a place to get my writing out there.
It’s moments like these where I remember I am completely scatterbrained. I could blame my forgetfulness on the fact that shortly after I posted my last entry my life deteriorated, but that just seems trite. In all honesty I did more writing in the last few months than I’ve done in the last few years. (pathetic, I know)
Well it’s now December and nearing Christmas, I’ve reached a point where I don’t know what I’m doing with my life anymore. I’ve gone to school (almost mindlessly) since 2006, my major has changed almost as frequently as my socks. I thought I had reached a point where I knew exactly what I wanted to do, which was major in creative writing and then out of nowhere someone asked me what I wanted to do after that and I had no answer. What did I want to do after that? I want to write, but didn’t I need something else to do in case I wasn’t immediately the next bestselling author? I thought, I could teach…well except I tend to dislike children and dislike dealing with parents even more. So, what am I going to do? I’ve yet to figure that out.
It occurred to me, I can write without having to waste my time with a degree in it, I could get a degree in something useful (by society’s standards) and still be able to write and attempt to get myself published. Now the question becomes what the hell am I going to do?
Any suggestions? Anyone? I didn’t think so.
I have interests, I love history, archaeology, psychology, sociology, art, design and of course writing. I love words, I really, truly do; words are my passion. Where can I use words and still try and find a job where I will feel fulfilled and useful? Enter psychology, I’ve always had an interest in the inner workings of people and I like to be helpful. There are a lot of things I could do with a psych degree, I’d be less limited than I would be with an English degree.
I think I’ve decided something, and it’s important. I feel so proud.
I promise not to disappear for so long again. I mean I’ve got things to say. =)
