I remember something from when I was studying Biology in community college. Apparently, some of my classmates were not the sharpest tools in the shed. One time we were assigned an essay that talked about cells, but one student clearly did not understand the assignment. His essay was titled, “Cells Are Bad” and had only one paragraph, which I committed to memory after the teacher read it out loud.
“Cells are bad. My uncle lives in a cell. It is ten foot by twelve and he has to read the same old boring magazine everyday. The End.”
That student got a C minus for that paper. He thought we were doing a paper on prison cells instead of biological cells.
Guess what?! I have just passed my American Sign Language Class! This class was TWO YEARS worth of material, which is a type of class I never tackled before! By passing this class, I have completed my Foreign Language requirements to graduate from my university! I’M FREE!!! I am about to start binge-writing while watching the Extended Editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings!
I find myself in a sad and depressing time. For several months, I have not been able to write any of my books. The reason for this is because I have been studying to complete my American Sign Language class. This class contains over two years worth of material, which means if I pass this class then I will have completed my foreign language requirements to graduate from my university. Therefore, failure is not an option in this class. As a result of the high stakes of this class, I was forced to sacrifice my writing time in order to put more effort into this class. While this does help me academically, it also robs me of my greatest passion, which leaves me in a toxic state of sadness and depression. Nothing is more pathetic than a person who is separated from their passion. However, I cannot write until Wednesday this week by nightfall. The reason for this is because even though I cannot write at this time that has not stopped me from brainstorming on how the story will progress. That means that once I start writing, I won’t be able to stop! Therefore, I have to suck it up and do whatever it takes to finish and pass the class and get it out of my life for good. Don’t worry though because you will hear a flurry of activity Wednesday night this week. Hopefully, I can get back on track and complete my writing quota on time. Wish me luck!
This was how my college celebrated the Holidays! It was awesome!
Today, I graduate from both the Santa Ana College and the Santiago Canyon College! With those out of the way, I will then transfer to Concordia University in the Fall. In addition, this Summer is going to be a very busy time for my writing because I will be working on several short stories, my second editions, and fourth volume all in the same season. I am eager to get started and to celebrate tonight with my family and loved ones. We will be going to a seafood restaurant with an ocean sunset.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and provide exciting news! A few days ago, I was accepted to transfer from my current colleges to a four year university called Concordia University. This will be a boon for my future writing career because the university provides a program for a Creative Writing Major. With this program, I will be able to learn about many writing genres I never explored before such as nonfiction and children’s literature, which would greatly expand my writing arsenal. In addition, it will grant me the education and certificates that I would need to explore other occupations that revolve around writing. I look forward to begin next Fall. Wish me luck and Merry Christmas!
