This semester was about finishing my tiers and starting my major requirements. I also used this semester to focus my career goals as well and figure out the direction I wanted to go. I always knew that I wanted to become a published novelist, but I never thought that my work would be good enough to pay for my life. This meant I always viewed writing as something I would do off to the side, like a hobby. Then I came up with a plan, I would get a job in the publishing business to build my contacts and make it easier to publish my work.
