In the beginning..

I'm a freshman in college, and the only thing I'm (absolutely) sure of at this point is that I love to write. I take comfort in it. I see the power of words. I want to be a part of the movement.

So.. I'm starting a blog.

I have these random, sudden, nagging urges to write. This blog will be composed of my thoughts, poems, developing ideas, and whatever other material I consider news worthy or monumental.

During my orientation in July 2007, I declared my major (magazine) journalism-which is a basic foundation for writing; whose to say this will still be my declared field upon graduation? For me it was a simple equation.

Passion for writing+Money to be made as a journalist= Journalism Major

Why magazine journalism? I feel like it causes a writer to use different levels of creativity. I can write an editorial, straight news, conduct interviews, or learn the layout for magazines. Nonetheless, I'm not sure this is supposed to be my profession. This is definitely my calling, but I am supposed to study it in college or study something else and practice my craft freely? I think people should know their craft, so I guess learning it wouldn't bring any harm. After all, this is only the beginning.

This blog..
my career path..
taking my passion to the next level..

All of these are in their beginning stages.
The best is yet to come. Hang on for the ride and cross your fingers. I don't promise to fill these post with excitement that keeps you yearning for more, just an undeniable truth.. my truth as I figure this "thing" out. Let's hope thats enough.

2 fingers and blessings,

  1. Now, I think it's appropriate to start from the beginning in commenting your blogs. I have your blog bookmarked on my toolbar, and I check it daily, so you're getting the views, hun! I just wasn't sure if I had to be a member to comment and now I see that I don't.

    Anywho, you are completely inspiration to me! And a lot of people have been telling me to start a blog here (the rest of America is). So I am still considering putting myself out in the public. But your writing reminds me of why I want to dress the world in the fashion of my literature and my ideas. So thanks for that.

    Chucked Deuce,
    Be with an E.
