I’ve never blogged before, unless you count Tumblr.com, but that’s more along the lines of look at these pictures I like, not actual written text. I’ve thought about starting a blog with texts posts but just never seemed to get around to it. Unfortunately I can’t say that I’ve finally got the drive to do this, it’s actually an assignment for my ENC 1101 class; therefor my posts will mostly consist of mandated assignments. I’d also like to say, if I’m being totally honest, I most likely won’t continue updating my blog after this class. Tragic, I know.
I grew up in a small town, which will remain unnamed, where you graduate with 90% of the kids you went to elementary school with. Some people might think that’s nice, and it is, to an extent. By the end of my sophomore year I was completely fed up with the concept of everyone knowing everyone and I craved change. Not being able to switch high schools I decided to dual enroll. I was 16, didn’t have my license and had to rely on people for rides. I applied late and therefor had to settle for a mediocre schedule with extended breaks. It was miserable, to say the least. A little over half way into my first semester I lost all motivation and my grades dropped drastically. I wasn’t invited back for another semester and had to return to high school.
When I went into college the first time, I think it was so hard for me to stay motivated because I was so lost when it came to my goals. Now, two years later and with the advice of two helpful teachers under my belt, I don’t think I’ll be letting myself fail again. My goal is to major in English and minor in economics. I will attend law school and graduate to be an animal rights lawyer. To anyone reading this, if it seems like I’m trying a little hard for a measly class blog, you’re right. This time around it will be different.
