A Day In My Life

What I’m Doing With My English Degree. 

The closer I get to graduation, in May 2018, the more my mind and future becomes clear and concrete. A few things are for sure so far: I will be staying in the city after graduation, I will be striving to get a book I’ve been working on published, I will continue my Master’s and Doctorate at the same institution, and I will become a teacher.

But, I won’t become a teacher right away. My plan has always been to do teaching and writing at the same time. But after school I don’t want to continue to overload myself. I decided, I got a degree in English( with a writing emphasis) for a reason-because I love writing and want to give that sort of career a shot. Plus, I need to be able to afford to live in the city I desire. So I have decided to strive towards working in the writing profession( my current dream is to be a screenwriter, preferably a game writer) then later on after I am completely done with my graduate degrees and ready to enter the classroom, I will become a teacher.

So yes, that’s life after college. Well, at least life after my undergraduate degree in a nutshell. I know graduation is still three semesters away, but time runs fast and I like to be prepared.

So excited to see where my writing takes me!  Yee!

My next goal to make this dream come true:

– find an internship in screenwriting because game writing is a hard job to get, and it will be impossible without experience!

– start saving money (something I’ve been meaning to do forever, and something that is important regardless of where my life goes after college.

  1. Best teachers are the ones with interesting stories. 😉

    Mine was a history teacher… never forget him. Said that he came of age during the Vietnam era… chose Navy when he was drafted. Why? He knew his history. lol.

    My hero. 🙂

    1. Yes! It just makes teachers so much more passionate when they really lived and breathed that subject. I will be the best writing teacher I can be, just like your history teacher, by truly immersing myself in my subject and passion.
