As some of you know I graduated from school last October with my first B.A. Then a month later I started the MFA program. I am loving the classes right now and I am learning a lot. I am really glad I decided to pursue my Masters, I felt that I still needed to learn more when it came to the business of writing. I am also thinking of pursuing my PhD, but that is a couple of years in the future. I have also been thinking of getting a degree on English. There are so many possibilities, and I am carefully considering all my options.
Who would have thought that I will be willingly going back to school to pursue a degree? I know when I was younger there was nothing worse for me than going to school.
Oh, how the turn tables!
One of the main reasons why I decided to go back to school was because I wanted to become a better writer. I spent a lot of years claiming to be a writer, but never felt like one. After being in school for the past four years I feel a lot better when I say that I am a writer.
There are some days when I feel like I suck, and those are my low days. Yet when I receive feedback from my peers, I do feel like I am not that bad. I know we all have our moments, but I do hope that we all keep trying to pursue our dreams.
One of the questions I am always reading is: What are you doing today that is taking you closer to your dreams? I know this is a loaded question because life is life and sometimes we don’t have time to pursue our dreams. Yet I do believe that when we want to accomplish something we can make the time for it. Even if it’s just a few minutes a day, it’s ok. Nothing is too small when it comes to our dreams.
I wish you all a wonderful week and if you can make the time this week to do something that takes you closer to your dreams, the better!
