“Good things come to those who wait”
False. Good things come to those who go out and get them. I’m a solid believer in hard work and some good ole determination. If I want something you bet I will be out there working my butt off getting it. Nothing comes from sitting around and imagining and while I am an avid supporter of dreams and letting your imagination run wild I also know that if something is big enough to want you cannot let that thing go.
I’m currently a sophomore at James Madison University. I never thought I would be accepted or get the chance to be here. Yet, here I am. JMU had been my dream for a long time and I still will stand in the middle of the Quad or the football stadium just simply amazed.
I applied to JMU as an intelligence analysis major. My plan was to minor in Russian studies and go into a government job after I graduated. Turns out after an introduction class that I really do not want that. I spent weeks freaking out trying to plan my life. I think I have some idea, but I’ll have to get back to you on that in a couple years.
I am currently majoring in writing, rhetoric and technical communications (WRTC) and applying to be an entrepreneurship minor in the Spring.
See before that I was going to major in media arts and design, but that kicked the bucket. I realized I was studying something that had too much of a focus for me. I don’t think I want the advertising, but more of the writing, thinking and creating brands. Luckily I didn’t know that and I made this blog to try and increase my chances in getting into media arts and design.
I used to tell you about my goals for the blog right here. I still have goals although they have changed, but I decided to create simply to create. Some people aim to monetize or get brands and while I do enjoy that I am keeping true to what I want. I want to have a space to create and publish my work freely. So, this is it.
I have a ton of dreams, each one different from the next. Some times I doubt myself and don’t think certain things will happen for me. It might be my anxiety or might just be my fear of failure, but I keep going. That’s one of the biggest things I try to relay through my articles and posts. If I can do it, you can too.
