The first week of my semester is over and I must say, I'm quite pleased with the courses I'm taking. All I have left to finish are four classes before I will graduate with a bachelor of science degree in fashion merchandising and a minor in fashion media! Two courses I'm taking are for my major and two are for my minor. Three of them are writing intensive courses which, surprisingly, makes me very excited of what's to come. For a few good years now I've been very discouraged with my writing and have felt it lacked the maturity and clarity I wished to come across. Part of that is because I've not taken any writing courses to improve it, and another is contributed to the fact that old habits die hard for me.
I realize my writing can be very convoluted and word heavy to the point that the meaning is completely lost or misconstrued. I'm hoping that through these courses my writing may become much more refined so that the truly passionate ideas I have may come across more efficient and effective. Additionally, I'm taking a journalistic writing course which is very exciting! I've been toying with the idea of trying to get into publishing after graduation, and the one thing that has stopped me from completely pursuing it is my lack of knowledge of journalistic writing. It's a monster of its own quite different from writing for pleasure or even writing English essays. I hear the professor is quite hard, but I believe it's what I need in order than I may succeed. I'm also taking a fashion publishing class where I will, of course, learn all about the art of magazines!
I know this semester will be a lot of truly challenging, formative work. For the first time is quite awhile in my studies I am hungry for the knowledge beyond what I know and look forward to expanding upon my skills into the next level of my work.
Hope you all survived the snow this weekend! Luckily (for once) Ohio didn't get hit. x
With much love, Lauren.
