I love to write—but I struggled in my English courses
I love to write. But I struggled in my English courses. In high school, I didn’t enjoy most of the books the teachers assigned us or the assignments we had to write. In fact, it’s the only class I ever received a failing grade (when I tried to be too creative during one marking period). College didn’t improve the situation.
Outside of school was a different story. I found books I loved and an audience for the things I loved to write. In life, sometimes, what you like to do doesn’t fit into the established patterns. And that’s okay.
