Wow, it's been a long time. I believe I promised several people in Indiana I'd keep this blog updated, but I have been failing at that lately!
I've been taking a couple of free (unaccredited) writing classes online lately, and I've signed up for a legit one through a real university online! Starbucks and Strayer University apparently have some kind of deal, and us employees have some classes we can sign up for, for free. So, if I like it, I may sign up for couple more next quarter.
My goal is to spend the next six months - one year taking classes and working on my writing skills. After I feel like I'm where I need to be, I plan on starting to submit pieces. I want to be a freelance writer for newspapers and/or magazines. We'll see where this takes me.
As part of my goal to really hone my writing skills, I am going to start blogging regularly again. Telling stories about my days, writing about things I care about, whatever comes to mind. So your feedback is valuable to me.
Anyway, other than that, life has been pretty uneventful around here. I've been working a lot. Alex hasn't been working a lot, but apparently Tremont starts back up in full swing for the fall, so he'll be busy soon. I honestly really enjoy working at Starbucks, some days are better than others, but altogether it's really a great job.
I'm really excited for fall. It's been a bit crisp here a few evenings, and I'm ready for the weather to be like that all the time! Jeans, cardigans, boots, hats and scarves here I come! Not to mention the leaves changing.. I'm so excited to spend fall in the mountains. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some pictures up!
Anyway, that is all for now, everyone. Until next time!
