Never regret life, learn from it. -- My personal saying.
Hello, my name is Care, I am 21 and currently a senior at a University in Virginia. It is an all-girls school... I endearingly call it "The Convent". I am a major in French with a minor in Creative Writing. Apart from school assignments, I haven't written in years. I may put up the assignments I have done for Creative Writing after I fix them up a bit. I'm also planning on fixing up all of my previous stories, because after re-reading them I have realized that they need some TLC. I don't have time these days to sleep, let alone to write for fun, but I am doing my absolute best to eradicate that problem. So cross your fingers kids, Ballet Slippers and Best Friends might be back up and running very soon.
My stories commonly are fairly frou frou la la and sugarcoated pieces of mess. Lately, in my workshops I have been writing less frou frou, more realistic work. This is because I have to write stories how my professor wants them. It's quite depressing and not at all encouraging. The longer I am in this Convent I am learning that it is not about writing things true to yourself, but writing to please the Professor. By the time I graduate I will probably be endlessly in debt, but like everyone else here, I believe that it's worth it in the end.
Some convenient Quotes:

"I say its a compound, or multiple, love story, pure and complicated." Franny and Zooey by J. D. Salinger

"No man ever stood the lower in my estimation for having a patch in his clothes; yet I am sure that there is a greater anxiety, commonly, to have fashionable, or at least clean and unpatched clothes, than to have a sound conscience" --Henry D. Thoreau
