Writing Writing and More Writing

When scheduling for my classes my senoir year in Highschool I remember thinking that my schedule was not going to be too much for me to handle. In fact I was sure that I was going to get through each class with flying colors. My skill was suppose to get me through it. But I never thought it would be so much work that I would be overwhelmed. Since I didnt take anything other than classes for my major this semester I didnt have the luxury of knowing how stressful it could be to juggle lots of different classes.

My English major hasnt really effect any of my classes because they all kind of coincide. Instead all the school work that I endure from my major is cutting in on my social life.

However, it has been alot of writing and that has required alot of thinking and effort on my part. I never thought that my writing would take so much effort but it has. Having an English major that has required so much writing has enhanced my writing but it takes alot more effort and because of that I dont think that I want to pursue writing full time.

So in response to how has an English major effected my other classes, it hasnt. Instead it has made me think about my work schedule next semester, in terms of how I want it to run and how an English major might effect me later. All that writing I am afraid might come to ahead and when it does the question to myself is will I be albe to handle it? As of right now I am not to sure

I appreciate your candid blog entry. Writing is indeed hard work, even for very talented people such as yourself. I do suggest that English majors take some classes that aren't quite as writing intensive, in order to exercise a different part of your brain and keep yourself from getting overloaded. But if your SHU career so far has helped you refine your academic goals, then the effort you've put into writing so far won't be in vain.
