I Am An English Major

    You will walk differently alone,

    dear, through a thicker atmosphere, forcing your way through the shadows of chairs, through the dripping smoke of the funnels. You will feel your own reflection sliding along the eyes of those who look at you. You are no longer insulated; but I suppose you must touch life in...

    Use of An English Major?

    I am an English major because I always knew I would be. It's always been a kind of calling for me. Always my favorite classes, and like most other English majors, I love to read and write. I loved Chaucer and Faulkner and Shakespeare. I excelled at literary...

    Because I Had To!

    I couldn't study anything other than English, I really couldn't.  Everything else just seems so...ridiculous to me, I guess. I'm English with emphasis on Creative Writing, because I sort of want to be an author, although I'm not very skilled at writing.  I wrote a book...

    So after researching

    for one of my classes, I've decided I must be thinking unrealistic because apparently an English Ed degree is useless and I'm a woman which means I should represent women and go into a STEM career. No thank you... I think I'll be an English Teacher. Doctors can't go to med...

    Mr. Edward Magorium: [to the main character,

    about dying] When King Lear dies in Act V, do you know what Shakespeare has written? He's written "He dies." That's all, nothing more. No fanfare, no metaphor, no brilliant final words. The culmination of the most influential work of dramatic literature is "He dies." It takes...

    Ever Since I Learned To Read, I Knew.

    I taught myself how to read in kindergarten, looking at cubby holes. After that, anything with words was fair game. My like of reading turned into a love of reading, and as I got older, I found that I enjoyed writing as well. While other kids were struggling with the "umbrella...

    Third Major's The Charm!

    I am a new English major, I transferred out of Biology just recently (which I transferred to from Chemical Engineering). The science stuff just wasn't doing it for me. It is frustrating, stressful, and demoralizing. I feel that I'm finally in a major which I'm going to enjoy. I'm...

    English Major

    Always knew I was a reader and a writer. From a really young age. But the problem is....now I'm stuck with this crappy major that I love. Sometimes your true loves screw you.

    Got My B.A. Now What?

    As the wonderful song from Avenue Q states: "What do you do with a B.A. in English?" I've been reading and writing ever since I learned how and after changing my major a couple times, I finally decided that English was indeed the way to go. The college I went to also offered a...

    A Lifelong Love Of English

    I have loved English, writing and literature for as long as I've lived.  I have not wanted anything more in my life, and I'm finally on the road to my dream.  I published my first novel, am writing a storm, and am in college pursuing my English degree.

    The Only Serious Path.

    I love stories. I love imagery. Poetry and fiction.  I think i could go without food or drink if only I could have a pile of novels and short story collections and poetry chapbooks. I don't think I could ever major in anything else, really.

    And by that I mean: I was an English major.

    But I sometimes think that I was born an 'English major' and that I'll more or less be that forever.
