You Gotta Use What You Got To Get What You Want

a term used for tricking, but it can be applied to career goals. If you have the skills, use it to get where you want in life.

Today in my Writing For The Media class, we had a guest speaker. He was very real and just makes things a little bit brighter for me as to what I want to do. One of the things he said that stood out to me was that if you're not committed to journalism or PR (He works in the PR field), basically the communications field, then change your major. I found it funny he said that because just yesterday, I went to The Hilltop (Howard's newspaper) and they held an orientation yesterday. You have to attend it if you want to write for the newspaper, so I went. I have to write and get myself more familiar. I have to stop being lazy and start getting serious. I have to write more, familiarize myself with the happenings in the world and read more. I think I can do it. Once I start to do it, it'll become like second nature. I commend people around my age that are already on the path to their career. I feel so inexperienced but the only way to gain experience is to write. Like Toni Morrison told the guest speaker when he asked her what can he do to write a novel, "There's nothing to it but to do it."
