I can't believe it. I'm in my last semester of my undergrad degree. I just finished my first week of classes and, I won't lie, it has been incredibly hard to get back into the swing of things. I really enjoyed break. Right now even, I know I should be working on an article review due on Monday, yet here I sit. More than anything, I just want to pour my life into blogging, writing, crafting, and developing more of my interest in photography. But most of those things have to be put on hold for just a few more months. I'm trying really hard to focus and work hard, but I get easily distracted.
Luckily, so far I am really enjoying my classes this year. I'm taking a journalism class that I am really excited about. My writing preferences usually fall under blogging or creative writing. But I think journalism will help with both of those. I have a tendency to be more wordy than is necessary, so I am excited for the challenge of being more concise. First assignment is an editorial. If I'm happy enough with it, maybe it will show up on the blog! :)
I'm also taking Recent American History. My high school history classes usually didn't cover much of the last century and I love history, so this should be a really interesting class. We were assigned a year that had significant historical impact (I got 1989, and yes, it was just a coincidence that this is also the year I was born). Then we have to interview two people: someone that was at least 43 in 1989 and someone that was at least 23 in 1989. Although I often dislike assignments that require a lot of planning ahead on my part, this one should actually be really interesting.
Anyway, all of that to say that my classes this semester will probably actually spark some blogging thoughts. Love it when requirements overlap with passions! So keep an eye out for posts with ideas that may have originated in a classroom. :)
