50 Things To Write About

As an English Major, it sometimes kills me to not have anything to write about. I have succumbed to creating a video to express what is on my mind (or for some project) instead of actually WRITING.

Writing is therapeutic, it can be one of the most stress relieving activities anyone could do. Yes, it can be difficult, especially if it is not your strong suit.

However, once someone decides to write, they either find themselves stumped, or clueless on where to start.

This could be entertaining, could pass the time, and could very well help anyone who is in a funk.

Enjoy :)
