And I’m back! Today was the first day of winter term classes, after a very festive and restful break. I’m trying to transition from my current schedule (which centres around Netflix) to a disciplined student mentality. It’s not easy, but I’ll get there. For now, I’m really glad it’s a two day week.
I had acted my whole life, so when it was time for college I went for one of the top theater schools in the country – the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University – and earned bachelor degrees in theater and English a couple of years ago.
Can you explain how to talk degrees or write them on paper? I always get confused about is it a "Bachelor of Science" with focus on accounting, or BAS. Or if I am speaking of a Liberal Arts Assosciates Degree, do I say Liberal Arts AA Degree or Liberal Arts (AA)?
Bachelor of Science Degree in [Biology]
Bachelor of Arts Degree in [English]
Associate of Arts Degree in [Liberal Arts]
Those are the basic formats, all you need to do is change whatever is in the brackets to your specific major.
Hello there! My name is Emma, and I’m 18 years old. I love
plants and candles and chai lattes and books and animals and lots of other
stuff! I’ve been lurking around the studyblr community for quite a while now,
and wanted to properly start up my blog, since I will be starting college in
the fall. I’m so excited and nervous at the same time! Up until now I’ve only
been reblogging other studyblr posts, but there will be some original content
coming in the near future!
I’m planning on pursuing a Bachelor of Arts Degree, with a
Major in English. Ever since I was little, I’ve loved reading and writing, and
I’ve always wanted to be an author. When I got a little older, I realized how
unrealistic of a dream that was, because its often extremely difficult to
survive on a writer’s wage, unless you are one of the few that make the New
York Times’ Bestseller List. Because I value a steady income and a roof over my
head, I changed my focus to becoming an editor. That way I could still pursue
my love of books, my obsession with proper grammar, and a steady job. Of
course, I know it’s still early, so I may change this career path. However, I also
know that English is something I thoroughly enjoy, and am good at, so no matter
what career I choose, it will be English-related to some extent. For the next
two years, I will be attending a community college (less expensive, easier to
commute to, smaller class sizes, etc.) to receive my Associate Degree, and then
I will be transferring to a university for two more years to receive my
In high school, I was one of those students who achieved
straight A’s fairly easily, so I’m excited to enter college and really challenge
myself. I took a bit of a different route to graduation, as I did
school online for the last four years, so if any of you have questions
regarding online school, feel free to ask, as I’d love to help!
I joined the studyblr community because I wanted to keep
myself motivated, and meet other students around the world. I am one of those
perfectionistic people, and that can cause me to procrastinate. In a sense, I’d
rather not complete the work at all, than complete it to a substandard degree.
This is a terribly bad habit, that I have been working on for the past year or
so to break. While I’m not quite there yet, I believe that studyblr will help
motivate me to just get to it!
For the next little while, before school starts, I’ll be
working on fixing up my blog a bit. I will also (hopefully) be posting
stationery hauls because I’m obsessed with stationery. I’ll also be
putting out a couple masterposts here and there, because so far, the studyblr
community has been so helpful, and I’d love to return the favour!
I’d also like to thank the following blogs, who were the
reason I joined the community in the first place:
