There is this one certain girl that keeps up with me and everything I do, like my personal stalker, you know? It’s actually extremely flattering. She’s one of the sweetest girls I’ve ever conversed with online. She goes by Hannah.
Hannah emailed me the other day, asking me to write a blog post (or make a vlog, but I just laughed at that idea since I don’t feel like getting dressed or doing my hair or making attractive facial expressions) to answer a few of her questions. Here is her message:
I was wondering, are you going to college? What do you plan to do in the near future? Maybe you could make a vlog/blog post about this? That’d be awesome!! 🙂
What I love about this post is that I’ve been asked these questions so many times within this last year that my answer is easy and I don’t have to think about it.
I’m “taking a break” from school this next year, giving myself time to finish THE WITCHES’ SLEEP trilogy and get a few things done that I want to do. An education is great, and I do hope to go to college as soon as I’m able, but I honestly don’t even know what I want to study. And by that, I mean I want to study everything. For instance, the degrees I’ve considered are psychology, history, and even nursing. I’ve also considered biology, creative writing, and English. Many of you are probably like, “It totes makes sense for you to study creative writing and English.”
*SLAP* No, it doesn’t.
You see, I am already immersed in the writing world. I study writing and English on my own. I don’t need a degree to say I’ve done it, because I don’t care to have a piece of paper that says I know what I’m doing. Yes, those classes WOULD help me, because you will always learn something new, or at least you should! That should be the point of college: Learning something new, bettering your skills. College has been made into something more than that though, something you “need” in life to be successful in anything you do, including relationships. Don’t misunderstand me, I love college, I think college is great, I think if you are able to go then go. But I don’t think it’s necessary for a fulfilled life. Only God can fulfill your life. You can have four degrees in different fields and still be unhappy. I simply don’t want you to think that a college degree ensures a job and security and happiness, because it doesn’t.
Like I said before, I have nothing against college. I do hope to attend college.
As for Hannah’s next question: “What are your plans for the near future?”
One day at a time! I seem to be saying that a lot now, because, really, all I know for sure that I’m going to do this year is finish my trilogy and learn Spanish. Like, that’s it, guys. For real. Oh, and in November I’m going to Miami for an Awards Ceremony, but still… My plans are pretty simple.
(I’m also looking for a husband, preferably rich and handsome. Thank you.)
I hope you have a great Tuesday, and God bless your souls and your families and your dogs. Amen.
(Note: I’m having a sarcastic day, so anything I’ve said that sounded off probably was. Maybe.)
