Life In General

Life Update: February 12, 2016

Alright soooo…I’m not writing about anything in particular today.

I just knew that if I didn’t post something now, the chance of me posting anything in the next little bit would be so, extremely low. I’ve been in a writing slump the past few weeks.

Well, that’s not entirely true. I have been writing SO much! Just…not on my blog. I’ve been writing researched-based financial articles for the hardest, but most fulfilling writing class I’ve ever taken during my university career.

Wanna know what I learned from this class? I don’t like creative writing. I always thought I did. I was like, “Yo, I’m totally gonna publish another book with all these awesome creative non-fiction stories I will write in the future!”

But…no. I probably won’t. I mean, I don’t hate creative writing. It’s fun! I love expressing myself through writing and I enjoy writing stories. But do I want it as a career? Absolutely not. I mean, maybe this will change in the future. But I don’t think so.

I LOVE research based writing. I love learning new things. I love telling other people about those new things via a well-written article. I think I’ve found my calling. …Maybe.

Anyway, this sort of came as a revelation to me last week. I think I finally know what I want to do with my future, which is equally exciting as it as terrifying.

Enough about that though.

Two more brief, life updates:

  • Anxiety/Depression = not horrible anymore. I mean, yeah, still not great. But it’s never really been great. Still a bit focused and worried about death. Still a bit more depressed than I’ve ever been before…but significantly better than a month or two ago!
  • A (Possible) Job! I have a job interview next week for an ACTUAL WRITING POSITION. Like, I would get paid. to write. articles. FROM HOME! This is my dream job. Even if it doesn’t work out, I’m so happy that they would even consider me for this job!

 

Oh, also, my super awesome, talented younger brother made me this hilarious picture for my blog header. It’s a cartoonified version of that sidebar picture of me as a child. I love it.

So, there you have it. Hopefully now that I’ve posted SOMETHING, I will become a bit more consistent with my blogging. It’s really hard when I do so much writing for school coming up with decent blog posts. But I will try!
