If you know anything about me, you know school has never been a priority in my life. Writing was always my passion, and that always took a higher priority in my book. This past January, after endless months of badgering me, my branch manager finally said the one thing to make me change my mind about pursuing my Bachelor's and Master's in Library Science. She said, "Do you know what would be a really good platform for a Young Adult Author? Being a Youth Services Librarian." And that was the moment everything changed for me. Now I'm pursuing my education with a vigor I have never encountered before. The only class in college in which I longed to go to was Novel Writing. While I really enjoyed classes, only Novel Writing gave me that super strong desire to do the absolute best in my class. I don't want to just pass my classes, but I want to do my absolute best in college now. I'm a junior at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and I'm taking nine units while I'm working full time, and writing... Needless to say, I spend a lot of time at work and "in school" (sitting at the kitchen table which is set up as my desk with my laptop with my music blasting...) I almost want to laugh at my younger self, who would be so confused by my desire for school.
