Expressions of English

As far back as i can recall, i have always been a good English student, and i have always enjoyed it thoroughly. I was spelling words from lessons weeks in advance, much to my dads amazement, whenever we had to do spelling lists in grade school.

I have always enjoyed writing papers, whether they be creative ones of academic ones. Of course i like the creative ones better, but the academic ones give me a taste of the types of writing out there. As Karissa and Tiffany wrote, English is my release. When i am sad, mad, whatever, I go off by myself and i write. Writing is my major, and i throw myself into it completely. Specifically, in having Dr. Jerz for more than one class, my major has helped me. I have Dr. Jerz for thinking and writing, and he is in charge of the New Media Journalism major, and in his thinking and writing class, i learned many techniques which i have been able to apply in my other classes. In his other classes, the techniques have overlapped, so i get a double dose of them, guranteeing my understanding of the subject matter. Also, in being a writing major, i put forth more effort into my papers than most, which i think professors appreciate. Also, any papers of which i have to write, are not a pain in the ass to me because i really don't mind writing them. Writing, not only my release, but my helper as well, why would i choose anything else for a major?

:^) Glad you're doing something you like. That's half the battle when you consider job options!

Oo believe me i know. I couldn't imagine doing anything i didn't like, thats just how i am. I want my job to be something i love doing. I want to be excited to go to work, and not wanting to bitch about how much i hate it when i come home...

I know I can remember back in the day of spelling classes. I used to come home with A+ on every test that I would do. Dr. Jerz has been definitely a benefitial help toward my writing process. His helpful hints on his websites are great! I am glad we all have the same classes together because we can help one another out. I think you're doing an excellent job in your major. Keep up the good work chicky... check out my blog of my "English Major."
