Back Again

*Dusts off blog*

I've been a bad blogger. I know, I know I haven't blogged in a really long time and for good reason. 

You know the whole saying about kids fresh out of high school, and wasting a lot of money and time because they can't figure out what they want to major in, that pretty much happened to me. 

My first four semesters at the university, I was bouncing around still finishing the core because I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I mostly just wanted to major in English and be a full time writer. Realistically, it's hard to break out as a first time writer, and even P.C. Cast has said so when I went to her book signing, she was a high school English teacher for forty years before her work was published. Forty years?! But that was back when the only way to publish was through the Big Six publishers, and publishing has changed.

Anyhow, so I finally decided on two careers/majors, nursing and music education. I know it's a weird combination, but the way I see it, if I can't find work in one field I have something else I can live off of, until I get my foot in the door of the industry. Since I'm doing nursing I have to do A LOT of science courses, two anatomy classes, one microbiology course, two psychology courses, one nutrition course, pathophysiology, chemistry, so yeah it's a lot of work.  

Then one of the new school advisers told me the wrong science class so I had to retake a biology course. Not to mention I have to take statistics, and whoever came up with the crap of statistics better be dead. Statistics is a freaking pain in the a**, it literally takes you about half an hour just to figure out the answer to one stupid math problem. I have never liked math and for that reason, too much work just to get the answer to one problem. My hatred for math will never die. 

So since I've been taking so many science classes this year I haven't been able to read as much as I normally do, as to book blogging that may die down as well, but I will still participate in blog tours and cover reveals. Now I will mostly blog about my writing and hopes that I get something published, and probably an occasional book I read. One series I completed, it just needs to be polished but because of the elements I have not been able to sell it to anyone, but I have another idea itching in my head and I hope to finish my idea for it.
