So in this new year I have been slacking lately. I’m in my final semester of college. Better known as the final stretch. College is weird though because unlike graduating high school, when you graduate you are going into the unknown. Most people know they will go into the work force or college after HS, but college is different. You have consciously chosen to get a degree in a field of work then you graduate and realize you have to make another decision to keep in that field. And more than keep in that field you have to fight for a job.
Get a degree they said. Things will fall into place they said. They lied.
A degree is only the first step out into your journey. After the schooling comes work if your lucky. For most though, you have to fight. Fight back tears in interviews. The constant struggle shove your way into a career. Hopefully you choose wisely.
So that is why I haven’t been writing as much lately. Today after class and work. I will write though. And read some more in A Dance of Dragons.
