I am currently a full time student majoring in Creative Writing and Religious Studies and minoring in Journalism. This is why I have started blogging…again. It is an attempt to get used to writing everyday.
When I say ‘again‘ it is because I used to be a Mommy Blogger. I cringe now thinking about this because I have never been one of those women who identifies themselves through their children, as if that is their sole purpose and identity in life. When I gave up the Mommy Blogger thing after about 6 months I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to blog about and attempted a blog a few times but nothing stuck. Now that I have returned to college after raising my children I have some interesting stories and thoughts to share. At least I think they are interesting.
As a child and teenager when I was asked what I wanted to be it changed based on the day and my mood. I went back and forth between an astronomer, a veterinarian, a writer, a journalist, and a cryptozoologist. One of those things you can not get a degree in…at least a legit degree. I have worked as a freelance writer off and on over the years and I have finally decided that my calling is in writing, and it is high time that I received a formal liberal arts education focusing on writing. As for the double major in Religious Studies, I am hoping that by understanding religion a bit more it will help me understand the world a bit better and the people in it.
So, welcome to my blog. I occasionally provide book reviews of what I am reading and I’ve shared my writing portfolio. I read a lot and I have quite the reading list being an English major. There will not be too many recent releases on there, as most of it is my university reading list at the moment, but there will be something worth reading there. My writing portfolio contains papers from University that may be of interest to someone as well as a handful of things dug out of my saved writing samples from several years back.
