New Beginnings and So Long For Now

The moment of anticipation is here.

Today I begin my journey into grad school and beyond.

I am scared shitless.

I haven’t had an English course since high school. I did so well on my English AP exams in high school that I had all my English credits taken care of before I even stepped foot on a college campus.

Now here I am attempting to study English at the Master’s level. Why the hell did I think that was a good idea?

The scariest part about actually chasing your dreams, those goals that have lived closest to your heart for so long, is that if you fail, that life you always imagined is dead. I am terrified that I am not going to make the cut in grad school. Although I think most people in artistic fields struggle with the feeling that their art isn’t good enough.

All of this aside, I am simultaneously hopeful that this will be a very self-affirming experience that will help me gain confidence in myself as a writer.

However, because of all of this personal growth and self discovery, I may be a bit spotty with the blogging for a while.

I want to sincerely thank all of the people out in the distant lands of the interwebs for reading my blog. Not that many people had the distinct pleasure of reading my ramblings, but I want tell each and every one of you how much I appreciate your readership.

I will try to update my blog when I can, lord knows I’ll probably have some interesting stories to tell, but I doubt I’ll be able to work on it much outside of my breaks.

The good news is that I get a break about every two months or so, so I’ll see you all then.

In the meantime, good luck out there everyone. Continue to kick butt. Continue to be brave. And continue to chase the things that scare you the most.

Love,

Erica
