Back to the Grind - College Edition

Welcome back!

This year seems to be chugging by as we're  a l r e a d y nearing the end of February! Where is the time going?! I've been super busy this past month and so very motivated and I felt it would be a great post to show you guys were I'm at at the moment.

I'm so thankful to be surrounded by driven, hard working, and motivational people and that's definitely given me a good ole kick in the butt to get back in the game with my classes. I stopped taking classes about two and a half years ago because I didn't know where I wanted to be in life. I didn't know what I wanted to do and to be honest, I just felt like I wouldn't be good at anything.

In the past, I've gotten myself into trying to get into programs and getting into degrees that wasn't something I enjoyed. And because of that, I wasn't motivated to continue. By the time I realized I should do something with my life  that I enjoy instead of just taking anything because it might pay well, I was already taking classes without purpose. Kind of like just going through the motions of college without a plan or an end goal. I decided to take some time off of class and just work but that short time to think turned into almost nearly three years of not taking any classes.

The year 2017 really helped me focus on what I want in life. I want to be able to do something I enjoy and something I'm relatively okay at. So, I decided I wanted to take up an English Major as my degree. Although I'm not totally sure what path exactly I'd like to take with that degree once I get it, I'm in the process of just starting this journey and seeing where it leads me in the end.

Also, please keep in mind that although my posts aren't the most creative and well drafted or informational.. I'm only starting out my classes! I'm hoping the more classes I take and the more years I get into it, it'll also reflect onto my blog. Improving your craft!

I started my classes in the middle of January and it surely has been a rush! I'm more motivated than I've ever been to do well and get to where I would like to be in life. Between classes and working my normal hours, I've realized how much of planning ahead will keep me in control and up to date with all my work. That also includes my blogging! I started off January with only one post for 2018 but blogging is something I love to do and I'm trying to fit it in my schedule to continue to bring out new content while balancing class and work as well.

As I take these classes and continue on my journey of an English Major, I look forward to bettering my blog and my posts while I grow and learn a new passion of mine!

Thanks for all your patience with my posts and thanks for reading!
