    I thought your post was quite inspiring. I’ve actually been really stress about the future and going in to college. Since I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with myself. But for some reason your post has lifted some of the burden away and I’m no longer scared fir what’s ahead! 🙂 lol thanks this was really uplifting!

    Ahhhh thank you so much for this post. I’m a UPD freshie taking up BA Creative Writing ( ikr!! ) and sometimes it gets really hard because I don’t know where or what I’m actually good at. Everyone expects English majors to think deep and to like Kafka or write super amazing final papers and I’m just not one of those people and it makes me wonder if I’m really meant for my course . This post made me rethink everything and just “hang in there”. Thank you Gretchen!! Really!!!! <3

      Awwww. Your comment makes me want to hug you! 🙂 I took up two years of Creative Writing in UPD, and even though a part of me was scared that I didn’t know what job or career to take after college (except to continue writing), it still made me feel that it was where I belonged. Hang in there! Just keep swimming. 🙂 I promise you things will fall into place. 🙂 <3
