I cannot believe this. I am almost finished with school. While I didn’t end up as the meteorologist I set out to be, I am quite happy with where my college journey has taken me. I remember weeks of being stressed up over math and chemistry, and now those are things of the past. I am a History major now. I’m doing that thing everyone told me I would be good at: English and writing papers.
Taking the switch was very hard for me. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before. But now, it just seems fitting. I enjoy everything I’m learning in school and it’s making it so much easier to glide through the days without feeling….I dunno… scared that I’ll never be good enough? Because I’m good at writing and researching. I’m good at this. I don’t have to stretch my brain to come to a solution. I much enjoyed the challenge, but at what cost to my mental health?
This past semester I learned about Linguistics. I never knew that I had a deep passion for it. I loved loved loved this class. Perhaps if I had a different teacher this wouldn’t be so? But I found myself reading the chapters of the textbook because I was actually curious, not because I needed to obtain the information. I was even excited to do our 10 page term paper! I felt like I found my soul subject. It was hard at times, but it was the class I probably put the most effort into. With that, I think I might go into the field of linguistics. I’m not sure what I can do with it, but at least I like it, right?
By the end of this college chapter, I will be a Historian with a minor in English and an associates in Physical Sciences. One of those things are not like that others. But I think it will widen my opportunities. I’m just proud that 5 years of school got me 3 titles. It wasn’t all for nothing. Not that titles do anything in Louisiana, but at least I have something to move forward with.
Anyways, I’m thinking about setting up a new blog and letting this one rest. I’ll still come around, because I love my little blog. But I want to do something that I’m more passionate about as a hobby. And that will be journals and planners. (Bet you were thinking linguistics: not quite yet). I LOVE making planners and coming up with journaling ideas. So, I want to share that with the world! I want to start up an etsy account and sell some things that I love. It’s a lot to do, and a lot to hope for (I’m not a sales person by no means) but I think it’ll be worth even the little bit I can share and help people keep their minds together!
I have worries about it. What if it’s not good enough? What if the quality I provide is terrible? Basically, I gotta get some shiz together. That won’t happen until next May though. I gotta be done with the school life before I start. I have a one track mind (if you haven’t noticed).
If you love hearing from me, leave me a like! If I get at least 10 likes, I’ll try to be more proactive with blogging and give y’all something to look forward to every month. If not, I’m just gonna be as sporadic as I have been for the past couple of years!
