New Beginnings + 365 Day Writing Challenege

Long time no blog! I am terribly sorry for my absence, it has been quite the busy life here in Kansas, or as busy as possible. It’s no NYC…

Recently here at university, I have decided that I wish to change majors. Originally, my major was Environmental Studies, but as time went on I found myself rather disinterested in my courses and I feel like I need a change. I’ve decided that I want to change my major to Psychology and minor in Journalism. I really want to dive into writing, and since my university doesn’t have an actual bachelor’s degree in journalism, I’m thinking of majoring in Psychology instead. It’s all still up in the air, but I’d really like to do something in Journalism. I could always go to graduate school, but it was never something that was ever part of my plan. If it’s what I have to do, then I guess it’s what I’ll do. More details to come…

So because I want to major in Journalism, I decided to commit to a 365 day writing challenge to improve my writing skills. Whether or not I complete it depends on how much I dedicate myself to it, and I really want to finish it. I plan on leaving my journal out everyday to complete an entry. It is very important to me that I do this to improve my writing and to figure out how much I love writing about random topics.

So here’s the link to where I found the challenge: http://www.gaiaonline.com/guilds/viewtopic.php?t=22824805
