I would like to hereby
that I have
MADE A DECISION!
After teetering on the edge for over a year, trying to figure out exactly what I want to do with my life, I have made a major step forward. At least now I know what my major is.
No longer shall I be a Pre-Humanities Major. I didn't like that. It sounds too much like preschool. From today forward I shall officially be known as a Humanities Major w/ English Literature Emphasis and a Minor in Editing.
I would also like to hereby publicly announce that I'm pretty sure this is the most amazing major/minor combination ever. It is incredibly interesting. I love it. Everything comes together in the coolest ways. I find myself using principles of linguistics that I've learned in my editing classes in my humanities essays all the time and learning the etymology of the the English Language has really helped in my study of Spanish, my foreign language of choice, which is part of the Humanities Major. Sweet, huh?
"I'm Majoring in Humanities with an emphasis in English. I'm also working toward a Minor in Editing."
It sounds official. It IS official. I like this official business.
