I can speak for a lot of us English majors when i say that I honestly have no idea how I got here. I really didn't know what I was getting myself into when I began this journey towards my degree, but I'm somehow getting by (I think). As the semesters come and go, I have slowly begun realizing that us English majors are somewhat of a family and we have more in common than we think. The stages of our major are interesting to say the least, but I'm glad I'm not facing these struggles alone.
1) Confidentially filling out your form to change your major.
2) Innocently signing up for your first class.
3) When you realize that the rate my professor ratings were all wrong and you're in way over your head.
4) You tell the girl next to you that you thought the assignment was really hard and she says "really? I thought it was actually easy haha."
5) When you question everything you've ever learned in your high school English classes.
6) Your friend uses the wrong form of "your" in the group message, so it's basically your duty to correct her.
7) When someone questions the difficulty of your major.
8) When your class discussion gets super deep, super fast.
9) You spell a simple word wrong and you wonder how you're even allowed to pursue this degree.
10) Getting asked if I only read Shakespeare.
11) No, I will not write your entire essay for you.
12) Me: That paper definitely deserved a C.
Professor: *gives me a C*
