Hello everyone! My name is Carrie and guess what? I'm new here. I'm a freshman at Lake Forest College. I entered the college with no idea about what I wanted to major in. I did have a general idea, though: Psychology? Journalism? After a while I got sick of those two. They seemed so typical. Then I went on a college tour with my friend Christine to Columbia College in Chicago. She is considering going there next year. During the tour they started talking about their creative writing program. My heart started racing and I eagerly listened, hanging on to every word. I decided then that I needed to pursue something I truly love: writing. I have passionately written since I was very young... and sometimes, quite honestly, I think it's my only talent. So that is what I will be majoring in. I may double major with something "practical" but for now I find comfort in the fact that I will be following a future that I will always love. Can't wait to read everyone's work and be inspired by you all! Hopefully we will be able to work together towards our passion.
