It’s been too long. Honestly. I’ve been busy over holiday break, but not so busy that I didn’t have time to write. And that’s on me.
Sounds like a bad breakup, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, I’m not stopping altogether. Just easing back into it. Writing is difficult, especially if you try to keep a schedule with it. And that’s what this piece is all about.
Writing has been a passion of mine for a long time. Like since I was in middle school long time. It’s a passion that has evolved and grown over the years, but it has also been a coping mechanism for many tough situations I’ve found myself in. Recently, it has helped me through yet another decision, perhaps one of the most important ones I’ve had to make thus far.
I got a text from my mother asking me if I was considering grad school. And then it hit me. I’m a third year college student. I need to start considering what I want to do, and start chasing it. Chasing it where though? And when? And where do I start? Things kept circling through my head until a very dear friend sat down with me and talked.
Alex, you’re a gem.
After talking to him for a while, I got things settled down in my head. I know what I want to do. Sometimes all it takes is talking it out.
