It is a truth universally acknowledged that a BA in English Literature has but a few practical uses. For those who do not wish to teach or write, a BA in English Literature is almost useless in the workforce. Do not misunderstand me, earning any college degree is favorable to earning none at all and I personally believe that a BA in English Literature is a noble choice for a college degree; however, when the world wants skilled employees, English majors are often overlooked. I believe this is because an English major knows a little about everything and not enough about something.
I graduated Susquehanna University with a BA in English Literature. At the present moment, I do not wish to teach and I am not creative or clever enough to write. My love of English lies in reading books, essays, and articles and discussing said works with co-workers/friends. As such, I have decided to begin this blog as a forum for appreciating literature and all that comes along with it. As the title states, I am happiest when I am learning and wish to be eternally learning.
In the posts that follow, I will share current works that I am reading and my thoughts about them. Every so often I may toss in a personal anecdote that relates. I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I am going to enjoy writing it!
Farewell for now!
