Like most English majors, I chose the subject as my major because it is something I know I'm good at and have a passion for. Since beginning my studies in college, I've already gotten a taste of what English offers, in literature, writing, editing, and everything in between. I have never doubted my decision, but there are times when all of the class-assigned reading overwhelms me. I wouldn't change it for the world. I love reading, writing, and I'm working hard in school to better myself as a student. Here is a list of the triumphs and struggles all English majors can relate to.
