    Hello There! ^_^

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by platerawriter, Apr 24, 2016.

    Hi everyone! I'm sort of approaching a crossroad in my life and I'm hoping that this community might actually help me figure out what my path should be.

    I look forward to getting to know a bunch of you and learn from the experience! Perhaps I'll try to post a writing sample too, I'll just warn you though. My confidence is not the best, so it's always really difficult for me to amass enough courage to put myself out there like that.

    Hello,

    I have an growing interest in journalism but then again I am currently reading a book on the writings of Hunter Thompson so that may have something to do with it. I wish I could help you in what area to go into but I am at a loss there. I do hope it works out for you and that you choose a path based on your passion and follow it as far as you can.

    You have found a great board to check out though so I do hope you post some of your work here. Welcome aboard :)

    I personally wouldn't recommend taking a year off, though that's based solely on my life experiences and not yours.
    I can't tell you what to do but it sounds like you have a lot of soul searching ahead, it's quite a big choice to make, especially if you have multiple professors who are probably a bit overzealous, pulling you in many different directions.

    Anyway, welcome to the forums. I hope you're going to like it here. I already am. :)

    Welcome to WF! Sounds like you'll fit right in. :)

    A year off might be a good idea, depending on your life situation and if you can afford it. I'm also unsure of the direction my life should take at this point, so I can sympathize with your conundrum. :dead:

    Here's our New Member Quick Start Guide to get you started. Have fun!

    Just to clarify, my old account from a long time ago and the new one got merged, so that's why some of the information changed. :)
