It’s funny, every time I think I’ve made a decision it turns out I haven’t.
Because of all that happened in 2010 I began to seriously reconsider my decision to major in creative writing, not because I don’t want to write but because of some more personal things and the creative writing department is a snake pit of doom. I began to feel as if I was wasting some part of myself by limiting myself to creative writing. I love to write it is at the core of who I am. I will always write but I feel I can do something more with this writing thing I’ve got.
I’ve had this idea and desire rolling around in my head for a very long time, like since I was a kid. I suppose if I had listened to the child in myself I would have known what I wanted to do a long time ago. I’m going to change my concentration in English from creative writing to rhetoric and have my second major be Philosophy-Pre Law. A lot of the classes overlap, which means I’ll be done a lot sooner.
I’ve been sort of running around what I want to do out of some ridiculous fear that I’ll suck at it, which is stupid. Like I said, this year is going to be different for me. I’m actually going to do what I want to do. Crazy, I know.
