    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!!

    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.

    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...

    Creative Writing

    I'm an English major with a creative writing track. I love it. I'm also a sociology minor. I hope to be a middle school or high school English teacher after graduating. I have three more semesters left.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    You will walk differently alone,

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm not a people pleaser, I don't have a 'stiff upper' and I will say something if you crash into me without an apology. Yes, I'm English but no pushover.
