Well, as I’m sure you know if you have been following the bloggers, now is the time for my last blog of the semester. I was trying to think of something especially poignant or witty to say, but found that all I can really say is that I’m thankful to have had this experience, and I hope I get to keep doing this type of writing for as long as possible.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before (I think about it quite often, but I’m unsure as to whether or not I have actually articulated it), but one of my goals on my Bucket List is to write something and have it published under my name. Now, when I made this goal I was thinking something along the lines of print media, but I have realized that these blogs that I have been doing every week have technically been published onto the internet under my name. And I am not just doing this in my free time because I felt like it. I’m getting paid to do this.
Now, it might not be on the scale that I am hoping to reach one day, but this, to me, feels a lot like success. Writing has always been something that has sat in the back of my mind as something I’d love to do, but never seemed practical as a means of making a living. But for the past few months, I have been a paid writer, and that definitely feels like a step in the right direction when it comes to my big dreams.
So, thanks again Montgomery College (more specifically, Jane Abraham) for giving me the opportunity to fulfill a dream and to take yet another step in the right direction to fulfilling an even bigger one.
Good luck to everyone as finals approach and Happy Holidays!
I hope to write for you again soon! Thank you for reading!
Until next time,
Hmmmmm…I’m feeling that this occasion calls for a tribute to my very first blog post. So, The Beatles it is! The Beatles-Paperback Writer
