I have been off the grid for a while with my approaching graduation. It finally got here! I finally have my diploma in hand! I officially have a B.S. in English with minors in Humanities and Business Administration. I can hardly believe it. Now, the common question is: what are your plans now? Hopefully graduate school! The next common question: what are you going to do with an English degree? Anything I want. LOL People just do not seem to realize the potential of someone with a degree in English. I can write, teach, work in an office, work in publishing, editing, etc. Most importantly, I can write no matter what job/career I have. Tonight's post is going to be brief. I just wanted to share my excitement. This graduation is the first rite of passage on my road toward my ultimate goal of becoming an English professor.
