    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.

    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.

    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...

    Happy

    I have always LOVED anything having to do with books and words, so it seemed natural that I would be an English major from the beginning...not so-- after going through 2 changes, I FINALLY realized the truth Haha...I'm really loving my decision now!!

    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...

    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...
