In one of my uni’s writing classes, the professor let us go wild. So I took the opportunity to craft some kind of prompt. Feel free to comment your interpretations!

In November, Sophomores like myself rapidly browsed my uni’s database of companies in our fields looking to hire students for six months. I prettied up my resume, then applied to 21 jobs. A few weeks went by, and the results came in. 6 companies wanted to interview me! So, all through December I worked with representatives to schedule meetings.

Let me tell you, 6 interviews in one month is tough for someone who’d never had a job before. However, they were all eye opening, some more than others. Specifically a small company whose goal was to help and guide immigrants/refugees to a better future. The interview for that job was a whopping hour long! All of my friends said it meant I was hired, but you never know. I didn’t want to get my hopes up either.

Other interviews were 15-30 minutes long, and each taught me a bunch of things about my career path, some more than others. Overall they were great experiences. Better to get a step ahead while in school, right? Anyways, fastforward to January 5th; my results came out. As others predicted, I got hired at the job at the immigrant settlement company. I accepted the job immediately.

Now I only need to wait for April to come so I can start working! But for now, I have uni to worry about. :>

2018 goals and 2017 accomplishments

2017 wasn’t as productive as I’d hoped it would be, writing-wise. I was too focused on getting my GPA where it needed to be (and still am) and finding a decent co-op job. I didn’t finish any of my WIP, and barely glanced at my completed works. However, I can’t say I didn’t do anything noteworthy last year, either!

– A Twisted Christmas got featured on wattpad’s Home for the Holidays reading list, which still blows my mind.

– My academic standing is better than ever after changing to a Global Studies major! It’s been super great. I even got on the Dean’s List!

– I got an internship! More on that in another post. ;>

– Planned and outlined one of the books I’ve been wanting to write; Candy Pop Corpse! I’ll talk more about that once its kinks are sorted out.

– This isn’t much, but I also supported my favorite artists a lot more openly. Buying CDs still feels amazing.

Now, for 2018:

Honestly, I feel like if I make goals with a deadline I’ll be more likely to procrastinate depending on what it is. So I won’t call these resolutions, but just things I hope to do.

– Edit a completed work because there are so many things wrong with my first drafts.

– Reach the climax of my newest work. I’m aching to write it down.

– Read something. I just need to.

– Stay on track with uni. All I have is me, after all! (Plus my academic advisor, career counselor, professors, peers…)

Even if I don’t get some of those done, the important thing is I attempted. Better than nothing, I’d say. Happy 2018!
