I had a conversation with my mom last week about college tuition and how I didn’t agree with it even if my college education isn’t really being used that much as a fledgling blogger and stay at home mom.
My first plan for a career was to be a teacher and an athletic trainer and coach high school sports. Since I’m not an official teacher now I’m you can see how well that plan went. I have the heart of a teacher but not the stomach or patience for all the non teaching activities that are attached to being in a classroom. KUDOS to anyone who could do it!
My back up plan with my major was to be a romance novelist. I’m sure I could do it if I could ever figure out how to be published. I had a pretty good fan-fiction following in the late 1990s into mid 2000s. my last project is planned and ready to be written if I could ever get the time to sit down and do it.
So the question arises… will I ever use my English Degree in an officially official capacity? It remains to be seen.
