If you read my post about addiction, you may remember that I was talking with a coworker I called J. He and I have been discussing some other heavy-opinion topics and I intend to write about those once I can get to some WiFi but for now, I just wanted to make a quick post about how much writing I’ve gotten done this past week. I’ve done more typing in the past 72 hours than I have in months. I’m not sure if I can completely say talking with J about writing has opened up new branches but I know he’s helped to flesh out some ideas I’ve had and he’s encouraged my writing to the point that I’d like to grow from here. Not leave and find somewhere else, but to expand my horizons on who should view this blog.
What I mean is, for the longest time I struggled with the idea that anyone I knew personally shouldn’t see this blog. Mainly because they’ll know things about me that I haven’t even fully discussed with myself and I don’t know if I’m ready for that. It’s one thing for other anonymous users to read my work, it’s another if I’m gonna meet that person and then they can tell me what they think of everything. Which is, they probably think I’m weird and that a lot of my problems are probably easier to solve than they look (mainly cuz I tend to think these things).
For the past couple hours I’ve been trying to think of ways I can expand my writing and I’d love to do internships but the only ones I could find were for places I didn’t have any interest in. Plus, the ones I found on Auburn University’s website were mainly for their students which makes sense. I just was hoping I could get a lead from there. I still want to write a book or two but those are a bit of a stretch as far as goals go.
I guess I’ll just have to keep my eye out for a good opportunity.
