Taking Classes

Hello beautiful dreamer!

Welcome back! It’s a beautiful Friday, and as always, I’m staying super busy. Between blogging, fun side jobs, keeping up with the house, trying to ride my horse whenever it’s not raining, and now keeping a very active baby from eating shoes or climbing shelves, it’s been a bit chaotic lately! But on top of all of those things, last week I started my second college course through Southern New Hampshire University.

My first class was an Intro to Literature course and it was a really good one! I had the best professor who was extremely helpful and gave me every opportunity to succeed. I could not have asked for a better introduction to this school, quite honestly. It was fun getting to read and analyze and write again and I certainly learned a lot.

This time around, I’m taking my first Creative Writing class and so far, I’m enjoying it. It’s a change of pace for me to have more open-ended assignments, but it’s also pushing my comfort zone a little. Which is a good thing, since that’s the whole reason I’m getting this degree, right?

When I first wanted to go back to school, I was a little worried that taking my writing habit from a hobby to something full time like this would take the fun out of it. But so far, it has actually been a treat! Getting feedback and connecting with other people in the same field is very encouraging.

There are six more weeks left in this course and then I’ll have another eight-week literature course before there’s a short break between the summer and the fall segments. It’ll be a lot of work, but hopefully, the excitement I’ve got at the moment sticks around a lot longer.

At any rate, I’m staying busy, and it’s a lot of fun, if quite exhausting. But between work projects and school, I do think my writing will start improving, which I’m very happy about!


Until next time,

Love, light, and kindness!
